What am I grateful for? Day #11

It rained all day today. But instead of staying inside, I went out in it. I put on my raincoat, rain pants, boots, and umbrella. That’s my umbrella in the photo. It’s the kind that doesn’t drip on you when you fold it up.

I am not going to say I love dark, dreary rainy days. But they sure do help me appreciate the sunny beautiful ones.

We do get a good amount of rain. It’s not too much but there are so many areas now that are drought-stricken. So our plants are nourished and our water is not restricted.

There was a little boy who plopped down in a puddle on his tummy and squealed with joy as his mom laughed. It was so cute.

Rain is something for which I am grateful on day #11 of the #thegratitudeproject.

  1. Early hours of Xmas Eve and I am still awake and wondering if I have all I need to take my own life over the Xmas break or if I need to rush out and buy more in the morning. People do not understand why others commit suicide but you know when it is your time. You reach this point when you have searched all 4 corners of the earth and there is little good left. Would love to cuddle up to someone but honest relationships are hard to come by and there is always some hidden agenda and not love. Have given up now.

    1. Dear Adrian,

      I’m so sorry to hear that you are in so much pain, that taking your own life feels like the only way out. If you are still with us & we hope you are, please reach out! ❤️

  2. I ❤️ watching the rain 💧 fall Anne, I find it very calming! Probably the reason why I am fascinated with water fountains ⛲️ & have always wanted my own, there’s just something about water that soothes my soul.
