A Little Rain Must Fall…

I live in an often-rainy place. (It’s a good thing I love looking at clouds…)

For the last two weeks the weather report has consistently predicted rain – it was bound to be true eventually, right? So this morning we woke up to dark, grey, torrential, pouring rain.

“The day is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
The vine still clings to the mouldering wall,
But at every gust the dead leaves fall,
And the day is dark and dreary.

My life is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
My thoughts still cling to the mouldering Past,
But the hopes of youth fall thick in the blast,
And the days are dark and dreary.

Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary.”
(Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)

One redeeming thing about living with the falling rain: the chance to jump in puddles!

Life’s best practice? Everything is about perspective… Lemons can be lemonade, detours are new adventures, rainstorms make places to play. I hope you find the fun in your own backyard today… Tomorrow is another day – rain or shine!
