Playing in the rain...

For weeks our granddaughter's parents have been preparing her for our family trip to the beach. When we arrived it was raining. The rain didn't seem to bother her, as she was so happy to finally be at the beach. While we were sad that it was raining and wishing the sun was shining all she wanted to do was go outside and play. You can see from her face that she was just happy to be where we told her we were going! This got me to thinking about my own attitude when I have looked forward to something and how I react when it doesn't turn out the way I thought it would. Do I go on, even in the "rain", with a cheery heart and a smile on my face? I want to have the same attitude and enthusiasm Ashlynn had whether my days are sunny or rainy!

Beautiful rainbow after the rain!

That was a sweet time. She was so excited just to be at the beach where she knew she was supposed to be. The rain didn't deter her one bit. The sand on the other hand...that was a different story. :)
