The End of a Drought


You know when it finally rains and all of a sudden you get a good idea how much you have let all your farming chores slip?

All those little things that need mending and tending that don't get attention because you are just praying for rain.

Sure, the rain is good, the rain is blessed for all the happiness it brings but that first rainfall is also a wake up call, a reap what you sow, a host of platitudes about getting out of life what you put into it.

Back to work, farmer and, Lord willing and the creek don't rise, it won't be so long until it rains again.

You know me, baby. Never one to under-work a metaphor, I have realized that my ploughing needs some improvement.

First, thank you. We are building a little long distance to-do list of our own, aren't we.

Second, as metaphors go, mildew may be a step too far. lol...thanks for the post!

You might be overestimating how much rain I am expecting...for now, I will just let it fall and enjoy what i can

I'm still praying for rain. Ground is hard and the grass isn't growing.
