It's been raining like crazy here in East Texas. Like "get out of my truck and my pants are immediately soaked" kind of rain.
So today I am thankful for rain gear.
At the house I have a pair of duck shoes and a yellow rain coat to get me from my house to school. But sometimes it's not raining in the morning so I don't bring my rain gear with me. Then I'm stuck at school with no protection but a umbrella. And as nice as umbrella's are when you're doing car duty you just need more than an umbrella.
So I got some rain boots handed down from my daughter's BFF (she out grew them at around 10 years old... and they fit me perfectly) once she out grew them and I bought another rain coat (green this time). Both stay in my office for when it starts raining at school.
Talking with some of the paraprofessionals I work with I realized that not everyone that has a job has the luxury of buying rain gear much less two sets of rain gear. So not only am I thankful for my rain gear. I'm also thankful I have the means to buy two sets.
