Thursday Thirteen: Rain, Rain, and More Rain

Our two day dry spell has ended, we are all feeling very under the weather, and I am in need of a little pick-me-up. So today instead of focusing on all I don't like about the rain, I thought I would remind myself of all the reasons I am grateful for the rain.

1. It gives us a reason to pull on our wellies. IMG_1247

2. It gives me memories like this one. _MG_6670

3. It gives us the most beautiful spring flowers. IMG_0704

4. It makes me appreciate sunny, dry days all the more. anv

5. It gives us adventures in the rain. IMG_0840

6. It gives us the beautiful green landscape that I love. IMG_9026

7. It gives us reason to have impromptu picnics whenever the rain clears. IMG_7586

8. It can be a nice backdrop for pictures. IMG_9003

9. It produces mystical scenes such as this one (photo by Sonja). _MG_6681

10. It gives us a reason to stay indoors and make a mess. IMG_9353

11. It gives Antalya's hair the most beautiful natural curls. IMG_9697

12. It gives us a reason to do lots of baking. IMG_9907

13. It gives us puddles to play in. mud2

Way to have a GREAT attitude Sunny!! Thanks for reminding me that all things have their positive consequences if we look for them. You make me want to focus a little more on that positive!

I'm sorry you're under the weather (pun intended). I firmly believe that good things happen when it rains - so I fully expect something wonderful to come your way! I hope it comes soon! Love ya!

Watching Victoria circle round that puddle makes me wonder if "Ring Around the Rosy" wasn't invented on a rainy day in London... at least she didn't fall down in it! Happy puddle jumping.
