Walking in the rain.....

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

A wonderful Sparkfriend recently mentioned to me that I can sing in the rain too.

Well, this morning, less than 2 blocks out on my walk, I remembered her words.

And I started singing softly to myself. Gene Kelly, eat your heart was so uplifting.

The rain was light and the air was fresh......and then I remembered her next message....that I

could dance too. Well, you know, I couldn't really see myself dancing down the street, but I did

decide I could skip. So I did.....once.....then again.....and a third time.

I thought if anyone is watching this old woman skipping down the street they may think I was nuts.....

But I really didn't when I got around the corner on to the next street.....I did a few

more skips.....I am surprised how elevated my mood became. I was grinning from ear to ear.....

and I realized that you don't have to be a little school girl to be a little goofy.

Thank you Sparkfriend, you know who you are! emoticon

I will doing this more often....

    Singing and skipping in the rain ~ another Gene Kelly is born! lol
I'm glad you are enjoying the walks, I'm used to walking indoors and I'm staring outdoors and finding it a lot different!
Wanted a walking buddy but who wants to walk only 10 minutes a day with me? lol

I'm getting there and you wonderful spark friends are inspiring!

Way to go Lyn!
