When I was a kid, we used to play in the rain. Mama would let us run around (when there was no lightening, of course) in the yard and wash our hair in the water pouring off the roof. Or we would go for walks in the rain and splash in puddles. If there was thunder and lightening, we would drag a mattress onto our front porch and all cuddle together in blankets and watch the storm. Once, Katie and I went horseback riding in the rain just for fun. Sleeping when it rains is blissful.
I just love the rain.

Don't get me wrong- I don't like rain constantly. It can get depressing. But it's wonderful how everything is washed clean and smells fresh after it rains, like the whole world is cleansed.
