20/52 - Rain Rider
Joining Barb in 52 weeks of daily life in pictures: trials and celebrations, the extraordinary and mundane --
whatever is unique to the week.
Like many areas, we had a ton of rain this week. I love the rain.
I find it so cozy and comforting to see my bright house take on the darkness of of a stormy day. The sound of the rain on the roof and windows, watching the huge trees bend in the wind just sets such a mood in my house. I want to make a cup of tea and stare out the window.
Like his older brothers before him, my youngest son (above) has to get "in" it at some point. Watching the storm from the front door, or the sliders to the deck or even sometimes from the garage it over takes my children at some point and they have to dance in the rain.
They'd object to the word dance, but it is a celebration. It is our nature study. They run, they scream, they joyfully look up for a good pelting in the face. They get a little crazy and drenched and laugh about it.
Thank you, God, for rainy days. We'll soak'em in.
