"Standing tall is a very admirable thing. There are very few stories in history of heroes who slouched to the rescue. Likewise, most individuals don't look up to people who are drooped over."

52 Weeks of Blessings --Week 18--Rain

This week's blessing is..... Rain! We are finally getting some spring weather, warmer and some rain. I love the smell 'of earth right after rain'. Rain helps the plants to grow and turns the world green again! I love a soft gentle rain to go walking in! Rain also provides mud, and what kid doesn't enjoy playing in the mud?

Hey--thanks for the comment you just left on my blog. Cheered me right up. I have been missing awhile, haven't I?! Been on bedrest & fighting a big case of the BLUES. Ugh.

♡ I love the rain too! We've had a bunch of moisture which is good since we had been fasting for it in our area! Today at Stake Conference our Stake President asked us to fast (we were thinking he might say more moisture) for gratitude for the moisture that we've recieved! We've been in drought type conditions for years! Great blessing!

I love the part about kids enjoying the mud! I love rain too, what a great blessing. I too love the smell and that it waters my lawn (I don't have a sprinkling system)

I enjoyed visiting your blog!

I saw your scrapbook slid show and was wondering how you did it. Did you scan your scrapbook pages into the computer after putting them together on paper or did you do them directly on the computer? You really do a good job with this.
