Some posts ago,
I said that we were here and it might as well snow...
like big-time snow,
But it hasn't.
I mean, if we are going to live here,
and it is chilly and cold every day,
and there isn't a cactus in sight,
it might as well snow at least one time
so my kids can stop saying when it snows a half
an inch, "oh my gosh look at ALL THE SNOW".
Not even where I wanted to go with this post.
You see, it's been rather grey, cloudy and rainy.
Which actually directed me to writing this post.
You see, I know a girl from where we used to live.
A young girl who is talented beyond her knowing...
in words, in music, in a street-smart sort of way,
though I bet money she is incredibly book smart as well.
I stumbled upon some of her writing, and learned that she
happens to be particularly fond of the rain.
Me??...well not so much.
Until now that is.
Until I started seeing it through the eyes of a young girl.
Who says you can't learn anything from kids??
These photos are for you, Miss Rain-Lover.
Thanks for making me see it differently.
For now anyway. (Hey..these pictures match my blog!!)
Oh, and P.S.......Connor must like it too. He insisted on
walking home from school today!!
