Nothing Like The Pitter- Patter

Of raindrops hitting the roof.

 Comfortable, relaxing and peaceful, the perfect end to a great day. Soothing rthymic rain, and the smell of fresh clean air.

Some believe that rain washes away sin. One way or another rain cleanses the earth. A fresh start, after the rain. Like many of us receiving our fresh start. Don't we share that experience? A chance at starting over, new beginnings and a fresh new day. Coming soon to a life near you...a brand new year.

The basis of Christmas from a Santa point of view is that you get what you deserve. You know the "checking a list...naughty or or lump of coal" yudda..yudda infinitum. I hope everyonr got what they deserved today. And I do mean that. But next week is New Year's day, and tonight here it is raining. After a picture perfect day. The soothing relaxing end to the day. Along with the pouring down rain, so does the pent-up stressful feeling of the day wash away.

So as I settle into an evening of the rapping- tapping upon the roof, thank god it's not reindeer upon it right now. I would like to take a moment a wish you all peace, health, abunance and joy. And may your New Year's not be too short.

All the best to you and yours

Yeah, it is raining here too, Freezing Rain on top of 18" of snow.

At least it is above 0 deg. F.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Hubbing.
