Rain is such a novelty here in the desert. After weeks of torturous heat we finally had a nice break this morning. Sweet-cold-rain. Mmmm, so good.
It was relief from the constant crying of my poor sick baby. We sat on the porch swing and breathed in the wet air like it was the last bit of oxygen on earth. Cali wiggled free from her perch on my lap and actually seemed happy for a few minutes. Rain as medicine, I guess.
Even on days like today, when fevers and rocking chairs are the only thing we have going, I still love my job.
Maybe especially on days like today.
