Rain dancing

We walk in beauty and we blossom in wisdom, we swim in truth and we fly in joy.
Darina Stoyanova

Even on a rainy, cold day in April, there are joys to be found when you realize it's time to stop waiting for the storms to pass...and take a chance on dancing in the rain! Today was a day for turning my face to the rain....and getting wet! A day for letting the grunts and grumbles and quacks of life slide off my back with the ease of the little ruddy ducks...a day for wiping the mist from my face and looking for the grace hidden between the raindrops. A day for sleeping late and taking the time for the second cup of coffee....a day for beading bracelets and twirling bouncing blond pigtails and cutting paper purses from cardstock. A day for making up songs and imitating birdcalls and photographing beauty and truth and joy. A day filled with flowered day dreaming and scrambled egg suppers and bagels for lunch. A day for splashing and squishing and dripping and tracking......a rainy day just filled with simple joy!

You are the best:)
The problem is that you touch us in so many places we don't know how to comment other than to say...thank you.
