Playing in the Rain
are having torrential downpour right now. Josh (8y) and I ran outside
to cover the garden, rushing from bed to bed and finally back under the
porch, breathless and laughing hysterically.
Josh- Let's run out there again! Me- To where? Josh- Anywhere!
And he grabbed my hand and we ran around in the rain. We were splashing
in puddles, giggling, squealing, and having a great time.
was so healing for my inner child to be 'free' with him like that. It
was so healing for my uptight adult side to say, "Yes, we can play in
the rain. Yes, we can get dirty and soaking wet. Yes, I can enjoy this.
Yes, I can connect with my son in this way."
I'm going to remember this beautiful moment for the rest of my life.
