Let it Rain

I woke up almost two hours ago to the lullaby of rain falling softly. The rhythmic sound wrapped around me and it took everything in me to drag myself out of bed just to use the bathroom. Now I'm laying here again, Henry and Jeremy at my side, dreaming of lazy summer days where the rain cools and cleans the world around us. I've always been fond of the rain...

When I was a child, I can remember hating the rain on most occasions. The rain meant days spent indoors rather than out with nothing but the television to entertain us. Boy, can age really give you new insight and perspective on life!

It makes my heart leap for joy when Henry begs and enjoys the outdoors so much. He's already brought us his shoes and thrown a mini-fit because the rain is keeping him inside this morning. I hated being in the house as a kid (unlike Jeremy) and I so hoped that he would find that trait within himself. It will only make me happy to see his clothes covered in dirt and grass stains - and I will never discourage his curiosity and excitement for the outdoors.

Today is going to be a very busy day. My hope is that it just keeps raining...

The rain always makes me think of this song. 'Rain's comin' down on the old tin roof. It's a lullaby song in the middle of June. Falling slow, falling slow...'


  1. I love just listing to the rain fall..even better if there is a very soft roll of thunder here and there. :)

    Hope you are having a great Thursday!


  2. I really love rain. I always have. Even as a child. My favorite thing in the whole entire world is laying in bed and listening to the rain patter on the roof and windows. It's so relaxing! I wish I could bottle up the feeling I get and store it for days when stress is threatening to eat me alive!

  3. Listening to the rain fall of one of my favorite sounds. It's so incredibly soothing.

  4. I love the rain, and we never get any here! When we go home in the summers I pray for a good thunderstorm.
    Enjoy those raindrops!


You don't know just how lovely you are...thank you.
