Today when I see children taking such delight in the rain, it reminds me of my own childhood. I recognize their happiness and I know that no matter how old I get, I will always want to go outside and feel the tickle of raindrops falling on my face.
It is too bad that we were all told at some point in our youth that we had to grow up and start acting like adults. What a shame that so many of us have forgotten about the simple joys of our childhood. The next time it rains, forget about your "to do list" and go outside and get wet and dirty.
