A couple of days ago, it rained cats and dogs . LOL (or two little girls)
The girls could not resist and had to run out and play in the steady down pour. It was unusual that it was just rain and no storm along with it. So, I didn't stop them. They played for probably 3o minutes and had more fun than they have ever had playing with any toy we have ever owned.
I caught myself just sitting back reminiscing when I was a kid and how much fun it was to play in the rain, mud or even skinny dippin while raining ( in my own pool only I promise.) Not that that makes it better especially, for those who swam in my pool all those years. Oh well, it was fun for me.

Anyways, back to my point. I know, I get caught up in the everyday have to's and don't always let my kids enjoy the things that God has given us to enjoy like the rain.

This little moment helped me to remember that my kids are happy with the simplest of things and if that is all I had to give them they would be happy.
Lesson to me, sit back and enjoy the things that God has so graciously blessed me with that is right under my feet.

Hearing all the laughs and giggles was priceless! It was all worth it even if they had to have a second and then a third bath before the day was over.
