This week’s theme for the 52 on Friday project that we are participating in was “Stormy Weather”. Lucky for us, God decided to open up the heavens today! When I saw this week’s theme I thought about ideas like Lightening shots or Puddle Jumping. I strongly considered the latter, but my subject (our sweet Adalyn) has strep throat for the 5th time this year! Soo I went back to the drawing board! Then I remembered something I did as a child during every thunder storm. I was not the typical kid who was scared of storms, I LOVED them and still do! Every time it stormed I would grab a big blanket and wrap it around myself, and then I would sit at our back screen door to watch it rain. This memory is one of the first ones I can remember back to from my childhood. I guess I still kind of do that now as an adult. Every time it rains and if it’s not too cold, I open up the windows to listen to the rain. It calms me and just makes me happy! After I had opened up the windows this morning, I couldn’t help but think back to my childhood when I saw our daughter, Adalyn, and a little boy I babysit for, Carter, watching the rain out our living room window. How sweet are they! And yes, the little boy is holding a Barbie, but let that be our little secret, okay? We have definitely enjoyed the beautiful sunshine the past few weeks, but every once in awhile a rainy day is just what we need!
