There is something about the rainy days that seems so refreshing and calming. They are great days to drink a cup of coffee and read a book. Rain is something that I have dreadfully been missing these past weeks. Unfortunately, my hometown has yet to receive rain. It is almost August, and I miss the smell of rain, those cool droplets. I even miss the sound of thunder.
Growing up in a low-income family household, we did not have a lot of money, which limited my sister and me from doing things that normally other kids can do. Every time it rained, my mom opened the front door, and we would sit and watch the rain, eating Taco Bell burritos. Some people have different opinions when it comes to rain, preferring sunshine over a rainy day. I think of a rainy day as a day to appreciate Mother Nature.
Without rain, we would not have the food sources that we need to stay alive, and that is what makes this planet so special. The rain reminds me to love and cherish everything that Mother Nature continues to give us to live happily in our daily lives. Currently, large parts of our country are overheated by temperatures. This is an unbearable time where only spending ten minutes outside could lead to sunburns and heat exhaustion. I am one with many other people desperate for the rain to come.
When the rain finally comes, I will run outside and dance until I am so drenched that I will catch a cold.
