A Mother’s Gentle Touch

     I stepped out onto the front porch this evening and was met with the most beautiful sound.  A gentle breeze seemed to add to that which played Mother Nature’s music just for me.  I’m sure you know what I’m talking about; rain.  Beautiful, gentle, sweet-smellling rain.

     We’ve been having so much wind lately that I alost forgot how amazing it is to just be able to stand still and listen… to the quiet.  There’s something about being able to listen, without the intrusion of loud noises.  I feel as if it really is a little piece of Heaven.

     Do you ever feel that way?  Does the rain bring out special emotions that you can only feel when the gentle droplets are falling?  I always feel as if Mother Nature is paying me a special visit, just me, when the rain and wind are so soft upon the leaves and grass.  I can feel the touch of her gentle hug.  I hope she knows how much I appreciate these visits.

     Its as though she is seeking a place to sit and be quiet for awhile.  Well, she’s always welcome to come and sit with me.  Until the next time, keep a hug on.

  1. Thank you, Marilyn. I do love the songs that Mother Nature plays.Hi Kelly. The best thing about this rain was the lack of wind, actually. Well, not so much the lack of it as it was just a gentle breeze; no lightning, no thunder.Me too, Betty. And I don't even mind Sheet Lightning; it sort of adds to the magic, don't you think? ~ Yaya

  2. I love the sounds of nature and especially the rain 🙂 I think rain kinda slows life down abit. Suddenly you feel the pace of your day slow and I become more aware of everything going on around me.

  3. Thanks for stopping by and becoming a new follower. I am now a new follower of yours as well. I LOVE the rain and especially if it is falling on a tin roof! :o) Have a great day my new friend! I can't wait to read and catch up on your blog. xoxoxo

  4. That was a beautiful post, Yaya — right in line with that gentle rain you alluded to. For me, when I see a huge tree that has new, bright green leaves and is swaying with reckless abandon in the evening's watery sunlight — that's when I count my blesings to be where I am.

  5. Ah..yes…a soft rain beats SNOW (%^&#$^&!!)which is what we had here this week. Wha!??The beautiful sun came back though. Hope it's shining for you today too.

  6. I feel that way too, especially during a snowfall. I love the stillness and comfort that a blanket of snow provides. Thank you for providing me with a bit of peace that reading your post brought to me.
