It has been several years since we have seen standing water in our area, and especially a week after the last falling rain.
But, these picture of water still standing reminds me of being young.
It brings a feeling.
Roll up my pant legs
Walk along the edge where the water was always warmer.
Maybe grab a cup and scoop up some tadpoles.
Watch them grow.
Did you know that tadpoles in a washtub do not need to be put in the open sun? Nope they don't need that much sun - it cooks them! Really!! I know - an act of kindness gone wrong.
Take you too childhood memories?
I hope so, they feel so good . . .
I loved setting my kids free in puddles after a heavy rain.
I hope they remember the simple fun and pleasures life offers.
I hope the fresh smell of approaching rain fills them with the desire to stop everything and take in those moments of life.
And maybe one day they will again dance in the rain.
Well, the skys are dark and the falling rain has just begun to fall again. The breeze coming in the open windows is delightful . . .
Share a memory today - enjoy it!
Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad;
let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.
Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein
:then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice—
