As the rain and thunder shake my house, I am reminded of an email note from Mom a few days ago. She wrote:
"Dinner's late but she's wide awake. It's dark and cloudy and Nikka is a bit shaky. They are sitting here watching me. Lyn said "Know what? She wants me to sleep out here with her since she's scared."
Mom laughed and advised that Lyn could sleep on the couch to keep the dog company when Nikka asks Mom. There was no thunder or lightening even though it was anticipated. Both Lyn and Nikka were able to sleep well.
