Play In The Rain~~~Susie Austin


“Anyone who says sunshine brings




 happiness has never danced in the rain”




When was the last time you played in the rain, went puddle stepping or watched in awe as Mother Nature ran the show?

We have had record amounts of rainfall here in WI and it was great fun watching my teenagers and their friends playing in the flooded streets and body surfing in the park. With five inches of rain in a short time it was quite a spectacle. They even were rowing down the street in a boat!


It reminded me of simpler days of my youth when all kids played outside and our moms knew where we were, we knew we had to be home when the whistle blew at ten pm, we made it on time or we were grounded. We did not have cell phones, ipods, video games or fancy bikes. We had one pair of tennis and went barefoot a lot. We did not worry about drive bys, or gangs and we all went to church on Sundays.


Yesterday was refreshing and fun, I was grateful no one was hurt in the storms, and we had the opportunity to have great fun plus I had the chance to relive my childhood a little.


Don’t forget to relive your childhood, and when you get the chance go stomp in a few puddles and know its ok to get wet at times, you won’t meltJ
