It's raining here. Imagine that! This week seems like everyone has had rain. Bunches and bunches of rain. Mom and Dad's creek has swollen so they couldn't get out this afternoon. They have to cross a small creek to get out onto the public road. It's such a small creek that I can drive my compact car through it. Not now. It is really rolling.
I know there are a lot of people out there that are getting flooded. The rain has done some damage to properties and such. But, since it is a warmish rain, has anyone just took the time and just enjoyed it? Have you stood out in the rain and not worried about your hair getting messed up or your clothes getting wet. Have you just been in the moment and enjoyed the feel of the rain as it hit the top of your head and ran down your scalp? What about the sound of it hitting your coat? Is it a soft sound hitting a wool coat? Or, is it a "splat" as it hits a raincoat? Have you tilted your head back so that it would rain on your face? The feel of it hitting your eye lashes? Oh, and don't forget about the smell. Is there a better smell than the smell of a cleansing rain? I think not. (Unless it's the smell of a good clean barn.)
I'm not saying that this rain hasn't caused us some problems with all the mud and such, but take the time to enjoy the simple things in life. The simple things are always the best things.
So until next time,
Small Farm Girl, rain dancer.
