{Learning To Love The Rain}

I woke up early to spend my normal morning with a cup of coffee in one hand, my bible in the other. God on my mind and my heart handing over all my worries and giving thanks for all my smiles and well...., that I can even hand him my everything! It is raining here and from the forecast seems to continue with the exception of some sparkle of sunshine this afternoon for a momentary break.  Being that I am such the sunshine girl and need it like people need water, I decided to write what I love about the rain because people..., I am feeling a great rain attitude adjustment on its' way! Anyhoo, .....

I love...

...the feeling right before it rains when the wind blows hard and that smell of rain cleanse about to greet the world.
...to run my long runs in the rain!
...to dance and jump in puddles on purpose with my niece in the rain.
...that I don't mind getting wet in the rain as long as I am not walking (I mean, running) into work (wink!).
...snuggling up on the couch and reading when it rains without the guilt that I am wasting time.
...how outside foliage stands tall after a rain as if to say thank you to their creator.
...making popcorn when it rains.
...singing with my niece in the rain!
...the hope of the drought being lessened by the fresh rain falling!!!!!!!!
...the way rain smells!
...afternoon beach rain & taking in how the ocean, sky, wind looks so different, yet beautiful.
...scary/crazy rain at times as it makes me feel alive.
...rainbows that happen in Colorado (where I was born) after it rains...., gorgeous!
...hiking in the rain and not giving a care if my make up is there or not.
...the reminder that God is there with us no matter the storms to see us through to sunshine.
...NYC or, well Paris in the rain. Oh, I would soooo take Paris anytime!
...to work at my desk in the rain. I seem to get more accomplished with work when it rains. I guess because I am not thinking I am wishing to be outside as I am such the sunshine girl!

...Lastly, that I can now smile when it rains for so many reasons mentioned above!

What would be on your list?

Oh the time! Back to work for this chick!

Have a blessed and wonderful, sunshine in your heart kind of day!

Love your attitude. I've had a rainy week here too and it has left me sad and bluesy. You have reminded me to be grateful...thank you for that.
