I love when it rains. In fact, I love it even more when it pours.
One of my favourite things to do as a kid (and even now) was to watch the rain come down sitting by the window; it was even better if it was a rip-roaring thunderstorm with lightning and all! It seemed like time was quite still except for the steady fall of the rain drops. Calm. Peaceful.
There’s something therapeutic about watching the rain come down. It’s like a clean slate or a fresh start and everything is ready to begin all over again. So many people duck and run when a rainstorm comes upon them unexpectedly, but have you ever looked up? It’s fantastic! Yes, your face will get wet by -oh no!- water, but it’s pretty neat to watch how the drops seem to form out of nowhere and streak past you in a race to the ground beneath.
The next time you get caught in the rain, put the umbrella down for a second and look up!
Happy rainy Saturday!
