When was the last time you played in the rain?
During the most recent rainstorm, my kids ran out in the rain, stomped in puddles, got soaking wet, and had a blast. I’m sorry I didn’t join them.
I’ve come to the conclusion that the older I get, the more important it is to play in the rain, stop to get ice cream, attempt dancing on the Xbox Kinect (yes, I said attempt), and just play more.
When was the last time you played in the rain or simply felt carefree? As I type this, I’ve got a list of things to do a mile long, and I don’t see it getting shorter any time soon. It’s good to be busy, and I’m grateful to have more to do than time to do it, but sometimes it’s okay to stop, relax, and re-connect with your inner kid.

Your assignment for the week – Go play….in the rain, with the kids or pets, in your garden, or wherever. Just have some fun and most importantly, SMILE! I just learned that smiling can trick your brain into thinking you’re happy, even if you’re not! Check out this article to learn more.
Here’s something that will give you a chuckle…Someone asked Evan what his mom did for a living. He said, “I don’t know but she goes to lots of fancy hotels and gets paid for it”. Gotta love kids.
Pssst…Leave a comment here (I always respond, just check back) and come play with us on Facebook!
