I WAS THINKING
about the rain we finally got in California. We were rationed on the amount of water we could use on our lawns. It was always a topic of conversation. Then it happened. It finally rained and everyone was delighted. But then it kept raining and raining for over three days. This caused flooding, mud slides and many accidents. In spite of the consequences, most of the chat I overheard, people were still thankful for the rain. I know what they mean.
THOUGHTS ABOUT RAIN
Rain falls because the clouds can no longer handle the weight. Tears fall because the heart cannot longer handle the pain.
When life gives you a rainy day; play in the puddles.
Some people enjoy walking in the rain, others just get wet.
Don’t be angry with the rain; it doesn’t know how to fall upwards.
Don’t wait for the storm to pass; learn to dance in the rain.
Rain is nature’s way of adding sparkle to the outdoors.
YOU KNOW YOU’RE GETTING OLD WHEN…
You make plans and immediately regret making them.
You leave laundry in dryer until wrinkled, turn it on to take out the wrinkles, then forget again.
You calculate how much sleep you’ll get if you “fall asleep right now”.
