Mud Puddles and Rain Drops

'I find peacein the rain.' - anonymous

Laying in bed, listening to the rain drops hit the windows, offers an unusual kind of peace. Snuggled up inside, warm, watching the rain drops come down, is relaxing. Putting on rubber boots, and heading outside to jump in mud puddles, provides sheer happiness. Smelling the sweet air, after a summertime rain storm, is equal to the scent of freshly mowed grass or the salty ocean air. Perhaps it's a learned appreciation, finding peace in the rain; perhaps it's something you adapt to, living on an island, with record rainfall; or perhaps the rain is more peaceful than we realize.
