What a Glorious Feeling!
There is a buzz all over the Piedmont Triad - it's raining! It is 6 am and I am soaking wet. I got up to the sound of the pitter patter of the wet stuff. I ran to the front door and just couldn't help myself. I opened the door and stood under the maple tree right off my porch and got slapping WET! I danced around in the red mud from where the water line was repaired last weekend. I slipped and fell but who cares? It is RAINING and I let that glorious stuff wash me off. As I sit here, I am shivering a little bit - the window is open and a sweet, almost muggy breeze is wafting through - I am giddy, senseless, delirious.
In an hour I will be at work fixing hair on my weekly Friday customers. Little ladies like Betty, and Betty and Marie and Susan and Betty and who cares how popular that name was way back in the day? Today they are all beautiful to me and they will have to get their bonnets out, umbrellas and I will spray an extra dose of spray for good measure. How about an extra dose of Freeze n Shine, Maude?
Haven't listened to the weather programs. They lie. For weeks we have heard, rain is possible this week. And it has rained everywhere but the Hill! All of that is behind me and fine with me this moment. We are getting pelted with RAIN! Great big heavy drops!
I am really running late and will update later one. I just had to share my little bit of personal joy with you this morning!
I'm singing in the rain, just singing in the rain; what a glorious feeling, I'm happy again!
