Last week, we headed outside. We headed outside just as the rain was beginning to pour! Usually, I’m not a big fan of rain! Rainy days make we want to stay in, curl up on the couch and just “veg”! Did I just use the word “veg”! Anyway, that’s what I would have wanted to do but some days you’ve just got to step out of the usual and do what you typically wouldn’t do.
So I’m not sure why my husband and I felt like it…but we did…we decided to go out and just enjoy the rain!
The kids geared up with their rain gear and mom & dad with their umbrellas. There was stomping and splashing! It was so much fun!
I was laughing inside as I smiled and waived as neighbors pulled out of their driveways!
We must have been a hilarious sight as we were all marching along the side of the road…in the rain! Fortunately our street dead ends so we don’t have a lot of cars driving through our immediate neighborhood.
I don’t know why we don’t do this more often! It was such a blast! And we had a great time together as a family…even if for just a little while.
It made me think…I’ve got to find more times of letting go of my usual schedule (or should I say agenda) and just enjoy the life that’s happening around me…even if it’s raining!
Do you make efforts to step out of your usual? How do you make sure you’re enjoying life as it’s happening around you?
Well, I hope we make more time to step out & enjoy the life that happens all around us! And when you can, remember to capture some of those moments of life and love!
Until next time…
