Rain rain go away.....

come again some other day.

Up here in Alaska we’ve been getting tons and tons of rain. Definitely our share and somebody else’s too!

And I’ve been finding myself wishing for sunshine, which I never thought I’d ever hear in my own head lol. I’m one of those people who LOVE the rain. But lately….. I’m so done with it. I used to wish for rainy days and now I wish for sun! Funny how things change.

So as I was sitting here wishing for some sun to peek out and warm us up I had a flashback memory of my childhood.

I have said a million times how much I loved my childhood. I think I probably had the best childhood any kid could have had. I was and am so lucky for the parents I was given. During thunderstorms when I was a kid, I remember my parents getting all of the blankets and pillows out onto the living room floor in front of our big picture window. My Mom and Dad would open up the curtains and we would sit there all together and watch the thunderstorm. I LOVED those times and I’m pretty positive that’s how I learned to love thunderstorms and rain.

So as I sit here being cranky about the rain and wishing we’d get a break from it, I also am reminiscing about the great memories I have of it too !

Thought for Today
Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing,
wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating;
there is really no such thing as bad weather,
only different kinds of good weather.
