Keep Asking You Will Find

Updated on December 5, 2016

The Ordinary To The Extraordinary

There is no limit

When people you know and trust don't have the answers

Seek out new life

Too often we give up

Suddenly stop short as if someone hit the brakes

It doesn't have to end here

The road you are about to take can be hard and rocky

I know I am still on it

When I feel I had enough

I pause

Take your time there is no rush

When you get there it will be just fine

I am reminded of the old saying "good things take time"

Enjoy the process

Smell the flowers along the way

It rained so hard I can still hear the echo in my ears

The rain stopped about ten minutes ago

My clothes are soaked

I came prepared

I wore two layers so I am still dry

My wife called me to come in

It's raining outside

Like I didn't know

I said I am enjoying the rain

Come in

She repeated with a firm voice

You're going to get sick

I told her I am only wet on the outside

Inside I am dry to the bone

She didn't believe me for a minute

I thought you were going to come out and join me

She lashed back with an abrupt no

I am going to be out here for awhile longer

Not telling her what I really mean

I could see her face already turning from pale to red

I better not press my luck

As she lowered the window

I could here it shut

It sounded awful loud

I am not saying she slammed it shut

I am just saying I heard what I heard

So as I looked around and seen everything covered by rain

All at the same time

As far as my eyes can see

I was filled with an amazement that could last forever

It also came to an end

When my wife called to me two hours later

I think you should come in

Well as I walked slowly to the door

I have much more than a memory

I have wet clothes to dry

Muddy shoes to do something with

A smile on my face

That would make any Halloween pumpkin grin

      Gypsy Rose Lee The next time it rains I will be looking for a dancing partner. At least we both can get yelled at the same time. It's so refreshing and invigorating at the same time. What is there not to like. I appreciate all your tips and suggestions. Thank you for reading and sharing. If rain drops keep falling on our heads we can stay out for hours. I'll get the shampoo and the conditioner. Soft breezes continue the please.

      I know just how you felt. I am the original dancer in the summer rain. I have grabbed a bottle of shampoo and run out in the pouring summer rain and washed my hair. I never worried about getting wet. When the rain has turned to snow in the wintertime I've gone walking and I return with a pile of snow on top of my hat. Ain't nature wonderful?
