“So tell me, what’s the happy news? You sound bubbly and all chirpy.”
…asks the best friend just after hearing a few words of hi hello from me.
“I thought you weren’t feeling good. It’s surprising, then, that you sound so refreshed.”
…tells the mother right after she listens to me talk for few seconds.
But why, I had to ask myself. Because, you see, the day is not anything special; it’s no different than a typical one. So why was everyone telling me I sound extra delightful? (Ok fine, “everyone” might be an exaggeration because anyone that dealt with me right after I woke up this morning would beg to differ , but that’s a different story for later, ok?).
Well, all the pondering about what was keeping me in this jolly good mood today led me to only one answer – rain…yes, rain, that’s what’s keeping me in high spirits despite all the work, the pain and what not.
My love affair with rain is not something new; it’s been there forever…even on this blog I’ve mentioned before that rain sets fire to my romance with life. So saying that it’s been refreshing to experience non-stop downpour here for the past couple of days doesn’t really come as a surprise (even though I couldn’t really enjoy it over the weekend). As I sit here and gaze out the window, I can’t help but marvel at the tiny drops of liquid pearls falling down the sky. Those beautiful beads hitting the window pane and shinning over the candle light is bliss to watch. And then, of course, the rhythm of falling rain wins over every other soothing music there is. It’s more than enough to calm the chaos in my mind and rejuvenate my soul, even without me realizing it.
What more can I ask for? Oh wait, there is one thing – it looks like every droplet is coming down to embrace me with love, so it’s time to return the love and get drenched, don’t you think? . Doesn’t matter the cold/cough that I might have to deal with later, it’s worth it…a few mins under the showery sky is totally worth anything. So, here I go…
Rain’s been making me float on cloud nine today. What about you? What’s making you happy?
