Run Through the Rain!

Saturday, April 21, 2012

Sometimes life gives us a little more challenges than we would like. But I promise you my friends, if you can run through the "rain", it will be so worth it! Although it is not always easy, it is so awesome to be able to bend down and get back up again, and to go run around the park with my 3 grandchildren laughing at me with delight, and to be able to walk without feeling I was run over by a truck! Yes! It is definitely worth it! We can do it!!!

"Let the rain kiss you.
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops.
Let the rain sing you a lullaby.
The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk.
The rain makes running pools in the gutter.
The rain plays a little song on our roof at night--
And I love the rain!"
- Langston Hughes, 1902-1967, April Rain Song

    So true! On the wall in my dining room it says,
"Life isn't waiting for the storm to pass, it's learning to dance in the rain." I hope my kids remember that for a long time to come.

    I hadn't read that poem by Langston! How cool.
His grandfather was part of John Brown's raid on Harper's Ferry.
I memorized the MADAM poems and performed them in class in school.
