Crash, boom, bang!

We're having an intense thunderstorm in the Midwest! It's loud and scary. I get anxious in storms. I always have. I can remember sitting on my grandma's lap as a child and having her sing "My Bonnie Sailed Over the Ocean" to comfort me.

As an adult, I sometimes still hide my head under a pillow when the thunder and lightning crash. And, I always indulge myself with a cup of my current favorite tea. I guess that's a reason to look forward to thunderstorms. Today, as it pours outside, I'm drinking a mint blend.

Often, by the end of my cup of tea, the storm has passed.
