Dancing in the Rain

It’s been raining here for days.  We often play an outdoor movie on the weekends.  My toddler was getting antsy since he hadn’t gotten to play outside in awhile. We had cancelled the movie yesterday.  Today we checked the weather, the showers were supposed to be over by movie time and as it was getting closer to sunset the sun poked through the clouds and it looked as if it was clearing up. After looking out the window we decided to give movie night a shot.  We gathered up our gear and went to set up.  Just as we got there the clouds rolled in and within a few minutes we were in a downpour.  I’m used to the weather being predicted wrong but it was still disappointing.  We looked at each other and instead of being upset just stood in the rain and then we danced.  My husband and I danced, then my son and I danced in the rain.  Then after being thoroughly soaked we went home.  Sometimes when the rain comes you have a choice as to whether to let it upset you or to embrace it.  Many times I have let it upset me. Tonight I chose to dance and also made a friend of ours get soaked with us which also made it more enjoyable.  I hope when the rain comes your way that you choose to dance and least sometimes.
