A CHILD’S WAY OF LOOKING AT THUNDERSTORMS

When you read this, you will never think of Thunderstorms the same way again.

This should make you smile!!!

A little girl walked to and from school daily.Though the weather that morning was questionable and clouds were forming, she made her daily trek to school.As the afternoon progressed, the winds whipped up, along with lightening.

The mother of the little girl felt concerned that her daughter would be frightened as she walked home from school.

Also she feared the elecrical storm might harm her child.Full of concern, the mother got into her car and quickly drove along the route to her child's school.As she did, she saw her little girl walking along.

At each flash of lightening, the child would stop, look up, and smile.

More lightening followed quickly and with each, the little girl would look up at the streak of light and smile.

When the mother drew up beside the child, she lowered the window and called,

'' What are you doing?''

The child answered,

''I am trying to look pretty because God keeps taking my picture.''

May God bless you today and every day as you face the storms that come your way!!!

    I always told my scared young kids that the fairies were on the roof having a party – thunder was drums, and lightening was flashlights. At least it kept them smiling and now they don’t remember all the lies I told for peace of mind.

    Why do parents lie to kids? Do they not think children are smart enough to understand the truth? I was told lightning was the discharge of static electricity from the clouds to the ground and the resulting release of energy was what made the sound of thunder. The truth only made me wonder more about the wonders of the world around me as I grew and therefore led to my inquisitiveness resulting in me having an IQ of 143.

    I’ve read three of your blogs, and I appreciate your taking the time to share things that bring about in me an inner need to break into a smile or to be a little more thoughtful in how I deal with others in my day because I don’t know what they are dealing with in their life. Kudos to you :).
