Bring The Rain
I’ve been a little overwhelmed lately. –Not so much from feeling like I’m “off-track” but more from the outside feeling like it’s pressing in. Just a feeling of inadequacy and judgement, I guess. Sometimes, when I feel that, I can overcompensate…I want to explain everything and just…well, overcompensate.
Today, there’s been a lot of cuddling with my littles. And, just relaxing and being present and at peace … Lots of praying.
And, then…came the rain.
I love the slow July rain, when the concrete is still warm on your feet and the cool rain falls softly. Washing. Slowly. Gently. Making things new again.
There’s just something soothing about standing in the rain, letting it wash over you, face tilted up to the sky.
I feel so much better now.
I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be, I feel it in the depth of my soul. And, I feel so … free.
