Mother Nature's Blessing

My big sister got married this weekend. It was an emotional, love-filled, beautiful day.

We had endured 63 straight weeks of oppressive heat and humidity. For most of the summer, the moment you walked out the door, sweat beaded on your forehead and your energy was drained. The weather channel was bordered in red -- warning people to stay indoors.

Then, the week before the wedding, it rained. And rained. And rained. The sky opened up the day before and poured down on us as we rehearsed.

But the day of … it was just gorgeous. Low humidity. A cool breeze. Sparkling sunlight. A full moon.

The most perfect day all summer.

Congrats to Carrie and Nate. May your marriage be full of love and happiness and the strength to endure when it's not.
