Don't Stop The Rain!


Are you listening to the song? :-)  Now I didn't select this song because it happened to be raining this weekend by me. Nor did I select it because I had to memorize it for my kindergarten show & my memory of the lyrics is still almost perfect! :-) I decided to place it on my journal because of the idea of it. Look at the picture above too! :-) (Boy that is 3 smileys already...guess I'm in a good mood! Ha!)

The idea is first to remember that rain is not always a bad thing! It provides nutrients to the plants and animals outside. Flowers....oh I could not live without their colorful beauty! And when was the last time you had fun stomping in the puddles? Well, make it something you do once this summer. There is one gentleman who may be very happy tonight for the rain....our newest Indy 500 winner! :-) And I'm sure some guys loved seeing Ashley Judd all wet! HA! 

Next, we do have umbrellas to protect us from getting wet. What are the umbrellas in your life shielding & protecting you from the rain in your life? And umbrellas are just so much fun twirling! And you can have fun picking out fun umbrellas! Don't just get the plain black or blue ones! My mom has a Zebra one she uses since my niece loves Zebras! :-)

Now next is the idea of "rainy days". We sometimes think of them as depressing & bad or negative but you don't have to really, first in light of what I've said above, but also you can let the rain in your life just roll off the umbrella of your spirit if you like. Now look at this part of the lyrics...

But there's one thing I know
The blues they send to meet me won't defeat me
It won't be long till happiness steps up to greet me

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red
Cryin's not for me
'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm free
Nothin's worryin' me

Now can think of it as a good thing & how the rain in your life may still be nutrients  & fun to strengthen  your spirit. Perhaps it can allow you to have fun inside for a change. ;-) Yes, I'm trying to keep this in mind with my recent back issues myself.

Finally, I apologize if you receive a lot of alerts today. I was working on the sidebar to include some of my favorite links. I have a whole bunch for you to look at. Now these can be useful on a rainy day! :-)

Hello there, Rose here. Thank you for dropping by and leaving a comment in my journal the other day. Over here in Vancouver it rains a lot, so you really have to get used to it and deal. I often think of Gene Kelly and "Singing in the rain". As long as I have a good umbrella, then I really don't mind the rain. And, I really enjoy some of your quotes. I have collected many, and it's nice of you to put them out here for others to share.
Sincerely, Rose~*

I actually don't mind the rain ~ apart from when I'm walking to work and gotta sit there all day in wet clothes - ugh!!  I do like it when I don't have to go out in it LOL
