Welcome to Wednesday and we have had an afternoon of beautiful storms and rain,  and Mother Nature turned on quite a show with lots of rain and I am a staunch advocate of splashing in puddles and dancing in the rain, so when my back garden was flooded ~ how could I resist doing this and how could my family resist the camera option?

I have had a lovely couple of days with gifts and letters in the mail (snail mail) ~ lovely handwritten letters  from my friend's hand to mine and with messages heart to heart. and beautiful music on CD to listen to ~ truly lovely music from Bette Midler ~ how can my heart not rejoice and sing?
I am very aware of how blessed I am in so many ways and I wake each morning with a spring in my step and a song in my heart for all that I am and all that I have.

The fact that I am so blessed makes me acutely aware of the distress of others and I am carefully and prayerfully supporting those I know whose needs are very great ~ no matter where they are in our wonderful world  and no matter what their needs are.

There is much sickness, sadness and distress  and there are times like these when I wish I had a magic wand and was able to heal, comfort and bring ease to those in pain and also to their families.
I remember very well my illness and my transplant and my sojourn with Stevens Johnson Syndrome, but I can thankfully say those things are in my past and while I hold them with very great respect, I don't live in my past any more.   They are what happened to me ~ they do not define who I am and the journey I take in joy from now on.

I am blessed and am determined to learn to dance in the rain (very literally) ~ I got very wet, but loved every moment of the cool breeze and the splashing in puddles.   My cat thought I had gone crazy ~ well maybe I have, but it is a happy crazy ~ a nice kind of crazy and I like very much.

Growing old is mandatory, but growing up is optional and I am not opting to grow up  ~ I am at peace with myself and and happy with my life. 

The storms seem to have gone for a while and hopefully it will be a good night for sleeping and on that happy note I am going to cast off the mooring rope and drift off on the dream tide.

Thank you for visiting the Musings of My heart  ~ a splashing in puddles  heart today.

Love and hugs,

I hear they are making a remake of "Dancing in the Rain." Perhaps you can audition for the roll of Kathy Sheldon. I think you would be a wonderful addition to the cast.

I see you are getting accustomed to "getting your feet wet" on several levels. Well done!
