It’s raining! I love it when it rains like this. That slow, methodical, permeating rain. Like God’s trying to cover every square inch of ground. It just makes everything look and feel so clean. The roads shine, the grass and trees are a brighter green, and the sky even looks cleaner. A frog hopped out to greet me as I pulled out of the driveway. I didn’t even get mad at the two people who didn’t know how to drive in the rain. They just gave me a little more time to enjoy the rainy morning.
I remember growing up in a house without air conditioning. I loved those summer night rainstorms. I would lie in bed, the windows open, watching and listening to the rain, smelling the freshness. Those were good times.
Hopefully the rain will stop by tomorrow. I have that day off.
