When It Rains


I woke up to a rainy Saturday, but I didn't let the raindrops deter my trip to the grocery store. Purposely leaving my umbrella behind, I felt every raindrop on my face, while I enjoyed jumping on puddles and smiling every time I hear a splash. I live for days like this. When it rains and everyone seems to run for shelter, I stand still and enjoy the touch, sound, and smell of rain. Because it is my time to be free, careless, and just be myself. The rain has a therapeutic effect on me. Specially on days when work is too demanding, family is causing too much stress, and life isn't turning out the way I planned. When it rains, I see the sky reaching out to meet the earth. It gives me hope that even though my life is getting chaotic and my aspirations seem to be out-of-reach, maybe - just maybe, my dreams will reach out to meet me.

  6. I used to play in the rain as a kid. A drizzle is fine with me. A downpour, I probably will stay away from. The best thing about rain? After it is displayed one of the most beautiful sights in nature - a rainbow. Cheerup, Kayni!

    By the way, I changed my blog URL to
    http://sagada-igorot.blogspot.com. Please update you link. THANKS.
