Dancing in the Rain

Lexie and I were washing dishes tonight, side by side. I was staring out the window, watching it rain.

Lexie rinsed the last dish, dried her hands on a towel, and asked, "Mama, can I go outside?"

"No, honey, it's raining."

She looked up at me. "The rain won't bother me."

I stared at her eager, expectant face, smiled, and told her to get her shoes on. She skipped out of the room, and returned with her rain boots. When I opened the front door, she looked at me to see if I was serious, and then shot out the door and into the yard.

And she began to dance.

I absolutely adore my baby girl. I love her carefree spirit. Nothing deters her from having fun!

Not even the rain.

I felt so happy and blessed as I watched her dance and run in the rain.

She lives life to the fullest.

Tonight, she reminded me to do the same.
