I absolutely love the rain. Ironicly, rain makes me gloomy and just down right sad, but I love it. I love the smell of rain, and how green everything gets after a good shower. One of my favorite parts though, is that it fills up the lakes for this summer. Now, I know this is kind of a random topic because it's not raining now, nor has it in awhile(at least not really coming down like I love). It just seems like life thrives off of the rain storms we get. Things get greener, the rivers and creeks, and lakes fill up so the fish are happy and I am too, and all the little animals seem happy. I guess that's why I am writing about rain today, because I have been pondering life a lot lately, after what happened on campus to that student, and just because it's interesting to think about from time to time I suppose. I think we take life too seriously, and don't appreciate the little things that are so second nature now. Like my family, I just see them as being there and only notice all the things they demand of me but I don't hardly ever think about the fact that these people have been there for me my entire life and have put up with me and even in the toughest circumstances, they never gave up on me. I take them for granted and even resent them at times because they are so demanding, but I realize today that I should give back. That these things are not them trying to get me to do what they want because they can make me do anything, but they are really asking for my help because they need it. My family is not second nature, its one of my top priorities. And that's the way it should be.


  1. I like the effect rain has on the environment, but I sure hate it when I have to walk from my car somewhere and forget my umbrella!

  2. I have 2 kids that really love the rain, too. I think that one of them likes it mostly because he is so sun-sensistive that the rain is really soothing. As a kid I used to love to play in the rain, but that was in Illinois where it rained during the summer when it was warm. It is one of my favorite memories.
