Liquid Blessings

It's been raining since 6:30 this morning!  A gentle, steady, soaking, life-giving real rain, not just a misting or a few minutes of hard rain that never soaks into the ground.  It's still raining as I write this at nearly 11:00 p.m.  In addition to the sound of the rain (oh, is there any sound more beautiful?) I can hear the joyous laughter of water in the creek as it flows down to the lake!  That's a sound I haven't heard in nearly two very long years.  Amazingly, for a California mountain rainstorm, there is no wind, so the feral kitties who won't get into their houses with the others, but insist in sleeping on the blanket-padded chairs on the porches, are staying warm and dry.  I'm going to fall asleep to the sound of the rain and the creek, and I think I will sleep well tonight, something else that I haven't done in a long time. 



  1. over two years? oh my
    no wonder you are so grateful and joyfull
    we all need water....everything needs water
    Our church used to say 'come to the living water"
    I am so happy for you and kitties....I still have my adult ones in the basement....now to get them out.....waiting for a heated cat house to arrive
    Starting to make progress on the kittens
    it is going to be hard to let them go.....
    So enjoy your water......the life giving force showering over you

  2. I always enjoy a storm in summer, takes the humidity down! Phew!

  3. Dear Victoria - alas rain - I am sure you will sleep well my friend. So glad you are finally getting some. Take care.
