While on vacation in Texas we saw firsthand the effects of a drought.
I knew it was dry and hot, but then we saw this - the lake with the dock that lead out to...nothing. The water is very low and this is one of very few lakes that still has water. Many lakes, rivers and creeks are completely dry and many fish have died. I am sad and hope they get some rain soon.
Ok, deep moment: Sometimes I feel like this. I have felt like this the past year. I feel like I am walking out to nothing...waiting for the rain to come and fill up the lake again. Life is dry, hard and just plain difficult. I want so badly to jump in the water, but I know I can't. I have to wait and trust that things will change. One day there will be water in the lake again and the dock will lead me out to something wonderful!
