Yesterday's rain was a nice change to the dry weather we've had lately, although central Mississippi once again came in with the lowest amount of rainfall--0.37" as compared to Vicksburg (0.70") and Meridian (1.48"). We have been so fortunate lately to miss out on the type of severe weather outbreaks that have plagued other parts of the country, especially considering we are in the heart of our severe weather season. By all accounts, it has been a benign season for us. When the rain came in yesterday afternoon, the atmosphere cooled off and that left the cold front very little to work with once it arrived last night. I got home around midnight so it wasn't as long of a night as I initially thought.
Today Stephanie Bell-Flynt and I recorded a commercial at the Mississippi Institute for Aesthetics, Nails and Cosmetology in Clinton. This will be the donation location for Pantene's Beautiful Lengths hair campaign. It is the first time I've ever been to the Institute and I can tell you this place is "top notch". I am so pleased they will be cutting the donors' ponytails , not to mention giving fabulous gifts to the participants. May 21st will be a day to remember for all of us and for the cancer survivors who will benefit from our human hair wigs.
On a more personal note, I want to tell you how much your posts/comments have meant to me on this blog. Not a day goes by that I don't get an email from someone who has read my blog and needed a bit of encouragement for the day. Some of you post comments; others send me a private email because they don't want to post. I read all of them and I have been blessed by your words. On the days I think of discontinuing this (because I don't think my life is that interesting), I find another reason to keep on keepin' on. So, thank you.
