A few days ago, I sent my kiddos out to break up some branches in the back yard. The goal was to get this job finished before the giant black cloud that was heading our way burst open and spoiled all the fun. Ok...so cleaning up branches isn't really F U N. I thought I'd try and make it sound better than, "Git that mess a sticks picked up be-fur yer pa gets home!"
About 5 minutes into the job, sure enough, came a downpour that could drown a duck. Being the good mother I am, I thought that they should all come in before they catch their death or more like, were seen by the neighbors slaving away in the rain.
I gave a good holler....No answer!
I hollered again...Nuttin'
This is what they were up to!
Now I know for certain the neighbors think the "new folk" are crazy now.
There they were...splashin' around like they didn't have a care in the world. It really did my heart good to see them having so much fun.
"Uh HUH!" Maddie, the practical thinker asks, "Will this give us pneumonia?"
"No more than a sprinkler will!"
Who am I to spoil all the fun?
I hope it's raining JOY where you are!
God Bless Your Day!
