“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”

Its pouring outside like anything…I always used to think in this part of the world rains are never so…as it used to be when I was a kid :D
Now when I think of the kids I tell myself they have not seen anything and yes my childhood was much better than what today these kids have! Won’t you all agree with me?

“If love is shelter, I'm going to walk in the rain.”

There was no restrictions, we could go out and play in the front/backyard, make some paper boats and make them floating in the river which is created all over with this heavy rains.
Once the rain was over….sun used to peep up and everyone used to come out on the ground and we used to make castle with the mud just like how we make on the beaches!
"Tell me how many beads there areIn a silver chainOf evening rain,Unravelled from the tumbling main..."~Thomas Lovell Beddoes
Life was so cool…I miss my childhood so badly! And feel sorry for today’s kids as they really don’t know what is to have fun other than going on a ride, or mom-dad taking you for soccer or even sleep-over :D
" Bad weather always looks worse through a window."

I believe what it says below ;)
“The things which the child loves remain in the domain of the heart until old age. The most beautiful thing in life is that our souls remaining over the places where we once enjoyed ourselves”~ Kahlil Gibran

Hey..nice to hear from you after a long time! Thank you for the visit.

Nice post, but I have to disagree on one quote - " Bad weather always looks worse through a window."

For me bad weather used to look beautiful through my window. See that heavy rain, enjoy its rhythm, see people running for shelters, knowing that you will never get wet...

Don't tell me you are enjoying the rain. Now I wanna try those paper boats too.

Every season is beautiful dawn and for me except the heat, I can withstand everything.

Dawn I have to agree with you.I have thought the same thing.I don't think the kids today will have the same memories as I had as a child.Loved the paper boats and getting wet in the rain.Here we shelter our kids from these things.
