It was raining when I woke up this morning. I love the sound of rain. It calms and soothes me and often lulls me into some of the best sleep I ever experience. Going back to sleep wasn’t an option this morning, so I laid there deciding how I would proceed with my morning. You see, Matilda refuses to go outside in the pouring rain. She can handle a nice spring rain, but when it’s coming down in buckets, she stands at the door and looks at me like I’m crazy.
It was pouring rain this morning. So instead of walking her first and then getting ready for work, I did things in reverse order in the hopes that the rain would ease before I had to leave. Matilda was confused by this schedule change. I think she thought I had forgotten about her. She looked so pitiful. When the thunder started, confusion gave way to fright and I found her under the bed when I got out of the shower.
When I was finally ready to take her outside, there was barely a drizzle and for that, I was truly thankful. I hate having to force her outside in the rain. It makes me feel bad and she always seems traumatized by the experience. Instead, we were able to take a pleasant stroll in the drizzle and it totally made my morning.
What are you thankful for today?
