I love sleeping with the windows open when there's a rainstorm. Even if the rattling window shade keeps me up and the room is a bit too cold, I just can't bring myself to shut it. I'd rather listen to the sounds that only come out when it's raining.
On rainy days like this, it brings me back to happy memories from many Up North trips on Lake Superior. I'd rather go there instead of a tropical vacation. Rocks and water for me. I am a Minnesota girl at heart.
On rainy days like this, I dream about the shore. Perching myself on one of the rocks, writing in my journal or reading my scriptures and just feeling the peace that seems to flow from the lake. Must be a bit of magic in the water... it seems to refresh and heal, all in one short sitting.
