Chrysalis Angel - I just want to tell you that tonight after my son brought my mother home (her 84th birthday today) I went outside to check the pool. I was really hot. It was raining lightly and it felt so good on my skin. I didn't care that my clothes were getting wet and decided to let the rain come down on me and walked around in it. I was thinking of you and of the comment I put in one of your recent posts. I was thinking how I am going to miss your blog and appreciate the friendship that has evolved between us. I hope you don't mind if I put my comment in this post as it is a sweet memory about another rainy day. :)
The following is a recent story I shared On chrysalis Angel's blog, although I changed it slightly.
One hot summer day I was babysitting my neighbor’s 6 yr old daughter. She and my 5 year old son were playing together. It was hot out but a huge rainstorm came and the sun was still out and there wasn't any thunder or lightening.
I said to the kids, "Let’s go outside and play in the rain with our clothes on. They LOVED the idea. It was raining cats and dogs. It was such a downpour.
We were soaked! The rainwater was so warm. We felt so free. Julie and Chris were taking extra delight in jumping in the puddles.
Then Julie exclaimed," This is the BEST day of my life!
