I love the rain!

I love the rain when it pours on our metal roof, lulling me back to sleep when I have to get up and pee. I love the way the entire world looks so green and shiny in the morning after a good shower. I love the smell of growing things, thanking the sky for the wonderful drink. I love watching my children splash in puddles and dig in the mud, and the joyous expressions on their faces while doing so. And I especially love rainy Saturday mornings when I'm the only one awake, nothing to listen to but the sound of the rain gently coming down and the few songbirds with so much happiness in their little souls that they can't help but sing anyway.
