Today we venture into all the things we've saved for a rainy day.
The movies and popcorn! Long visits to the library! Knitting! Boardgames!
We tell ourselves that certain things must wait for the rain, and so we hold off until we see those dark clouds and raindrops.
Certain things must wait for the rain.
In this way, we relish the rain. We actually hope for it. What a change in perspective for little girls who keep their bathing suits and towels by the door for the moment the pool opens. With a forecast of rain today, we don't mope. We don't wish for different weather.
No. We waited for this because we know that certain things must wait for the rain.
What did you do during the rainy days of summer as a child?
