A summer rain

A gentle rain fell on a green summer day. My 2-year-old grandson was fascinated as he watched it through the window. I took him outside to feel the rain. How he laughed. I laughed too. Then I realized how precious rain is, how needful to sustain life on earth. It takes a child to teach us oldsters to appreciate the gift of rain.
