Thunder and Lightening Oh My!
I'm terrified of loud thunder. I'll own up to that. Absolutely terrified. Low rumbling thunder I love. I love it when it drags out and just rumbles. But the loud window rattling cracks do me in. Last night was a rough night for our little house. I woke up to the low rumbling and snuggled under the covers to just enjoy. Dozed off a bit. Woke up with my heart hammering, my hands shaking and clinging to Tracy. Terrified. 2 minutes later I hear little feet pounding up the stairs. Bree joined Jarik and Tiaree and we all cowered in our bed. There is nothing that'll force your nerves to calm like being strong for your children. I jumped once while I was holding Bree and felt her tense up in response. I had to make myself relax and not react to the bone jarring thunder. I didn't think I could, but I did! It's amazing what you can do for your children! Usually I just cling to Tracy, completely tense and shaking until it calms down. I couldn't do that last night. My children needed me :) I'm proud to say I was able to be Mommy and not a scared little sissy girl :D
