Rain, rain…

    OK, enough already. I’m tired of being drizzled or rained on every time I go outside. I’m ready for the rain to stop and the sun to shine. Somehow it doesn’t seem as bad slogging through mud and water if the sun is shining.

     Speaking of mud and water, we still have plenty of it at our house and soon there will be a lot more where that came from. Although, I am tired of it already, my sons have a different perspective on it. As we were leaving the farmyard this morning, I saw that the driveway to the garage was nearly under water from a melting snowbank. My sons noticed it, too, and Brendan said, "That’s awesome, Thomas. We have to go sailing in it."

      That wasn’t my reaction to the pond, but given that we can’t do much about it, it’s probably the apprpriate one. Kids have a great way of just enjoying what life gives them instead of fretting about it.

     Given that, I guess I better stop complaining about the weather and be grateful that it’s warm enough to rain, not snow and that the snowpack is dwindling. If I approach it with an attitude like my children, it will be a sunshiny day, cloud cover or not.
