poem about thunder

A child's view of thunderstorms...I loved it!
A little girl walked to and from school daily.

Though the weather that morning was questionable and clouds were forming,
she made her daily trek to school.

As the afternoon progressed, the winds whipped up, along with lightning.

The mother of the little girl felt concerned that her daughter

would be frightened as she walked home from school.
She also feared the electrical storm might harm her child.
Full of concern, the mother got into her car
and quickly drove along the route to her child's school.
As she did, she saw her little girl walking along.
At each flash of lightning, the child would stop, look up, and smile.
More lighting followed quickly and with each,
the little girl would look at the streak of light and smile.
When the mother drew up beside the child,
she lowered the window and called, "What are you doing?"
The child answered, "I am trying to look pretty
because God keeps taking my picture."
May God bless you today & every day
as you face the storms that come your way!
"Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead."
—Louisa May Alcott
