Singing in the Rain

There’s nothing like taking a big striped umbrella, waterproof Keene shoes, and a fabulous LL Bean raincoat and going out for a walk in the rain. When I tell people that my goal is to walk everyday for a year, they always ask me what I will do when it rains. My answer is that I will sing in the rain.

"Singing In The Rain"

I'm singing in the rain
Just singing in the rain
What a glorious feeling
I'm happy again
I'm laughing at clouds
So dark up above
The sun's in my heart
And I'm ready for love

Let the stormy clouds chase
Everyone from the place
Come on with the rain
I've a smile on my face
I'll walk down the lane
With a happy refrain
Singing, singing in the rain
In the rain.

The beauty of singing in the rain is that no one is listening. I’m out virtually by myself. I remember some of the words to “Singing in the Rain,” have some idea of the tune, and have a great time singing. I just smile at myself as I make up the parts I don’t know. I always love singing that song when it rains.

When you are in the middle of a storm in your life, you might forget that you can grab an umbrella, embrace the rain, look up at the clouds and smile. It won’t solve your problems, but you will feel better and more prepared for whatever comes your way.
