Usually I write these posts on what is the start to my weekend, but because of the historic flooding in the St. Louis area, I will be working extra this week. Everyone is putting in long hours this week, everyone at the station, but more importantly, all the first responders and emergency officials are working to keep everyone safe from the floods. Its easy to find myself complaining of exhaustion and the long rain-filled days, but then I think about all the people who are fighting to keep their homes and businesses safe and I find myself shutting my mouth real quick. And even during the tough weeks, there's so much beauty and good around us. From the stunning field of wild flowers I stumbled upon the other day, to the amazing spirit of the volunteers, to the just how amazing coffee has tasted this week. I'm looking forward to savoring my one day off tomorrow, celebrating Cinco de Mayo and seeing friends and family who are in town this weekend. I hope everyone gets to enjoy some much needed sunshine this week.
