Rainy Day


It's raining here. Raining as if the skies have opened up. The clouds so full of moisture that they simply cannot hold another drop. Thunder, lightening torrential rain at 8:30 in the morning. I love the sound of it..and feeling the safety and warmth of my home.

I remember when I was a child...and the bright yellow of the inside of my classroom at school and seeing the dark of a particularly rainy day. Yellow slickers and boots lined up in the coat closets. Multi colored umbrellas dripping, forming puddles.

I always felt safe and secure and loved looking out and seeing the rivulets form on the windows and enjoy hearing the water flow through the rain gutters. I don't know why I find it all so comforting, but I do.

Rain washes away all the impurites of nature and gives us the opportunity to witness sky that is clean and a soul that is refreshed. Thank you stopping by my site. I love your place here and with your permission may I return to see read and learn?

I find the sound of rain falling comforting, too. Rainy nights are like lullabies to me. I had sleet this morning. I don't think you'd have liked that as well.:)
