Splashing in the Rain

I wrote this in 1997, when two of my grandsons were visiting me for their vacation. At that time, come rain or shine, I began my day with an early morning walk. Usually the boys wanted to stay at home with Grandpap.

So, this morning, it was raining and I wanted them to stay home with Grandpap. But guess what! This morning they WANTED to go on the walk, in the rain.

I wrote:
You can only imagine how wet we got on the walk this morning. Think about taking an umbrella into the morning shower, wearing your shoes and socks and all your clothes. Then wave the umbrella around, or put it aside for most of the time. Think about keeping the drain closed in the bathtub and letting the water come up over your shoes. Think about staying in the shower for at least half an hour. The boys got that wet!

Final note: It was a fun walk in spite of the wetness.

About NJ

I love to write! I realized in 9th grade that I really enjoyed writing. Every two weeks we had assigned topics that we were to use to write an essay. I liked writing the essays. I'm a mom and a grandma. None of my family live nearby, but they visit when they are able to come. I've been a pastor's wife and a grade school teacher. Now I'm retired and enjoying visiting others, and indulging myself in my hobbies, --writing and art activities. I'm very thankful for the blessings in life.
