I’m still not feeling well and am not in the mood to write, so today is Throwback Thursday. The following dialogue took place between Alma (a 92-year-old woman I used to take care of) and myself. Alma passed away early last year at the age of 94.
Alma – The weather’s been awful this year, hasn’t it?
Vicki – No.
A – You don’t think all this rain’s been awful?
V – No, awful is a destructive tornado, or being flooded out of your house. The weather we’ve been having here is terribly annoying, but I wouldn’t call it awful. That, to me, is like daring God to show us how much worse it can be.
A – What do you mean?
V – I mean, maybe it’s better to thank God for how good we’ve got it than to complain about how terrible it is.
A – I’m gonna wait for it to dry up a little.
