sunshine brings happiness
has never danced
in the rain”
I was walking to my car this afternoon, and it started to rain, and not just a trickle, but hard, soaking rain.
Everyone around me ran for cover.
But something about feeling its icy drops on my skin made me stand still.
Standing there, all by myself, I let the rain embrace me.
And then I did something I haven't done since I was a kid.
I raised my face to the sky, stuck out my tounge and tasted its sweetness, then I threw my hands up in the air and twirled around like an excited child.
I knew everyone was watching me, but I didn't care.
What a beautiful, beauty-filled day.
