Sometimes our children say and do things that embarrass us or make us cringe. But most of the time they are a source of joy, amazement, and pride.
Like last night when my daughter asked me to look at these pictures she had just taken of the sunset. I told her she had gotten some nice ones and then she said,
“You know, mom, you should do a post on these to make sure people know that with all the rain you’ve been complaining about, it’s still beautiful in Oregon.”
Ah. I guess I’ve been complaining enough.
Not only is the sunset beautiful, but there is green everywhere. The fir trees are almost completely chartreuse with all the new growth they’re putting out. The flowers are blooming, and the lettuce, onions, and peas seem to like the coolness and rain.
It will warm up, and I promise here and now to NOT complain about the heat later.
I’m sure my daughter would call me on it if I did, anyway.
