First rainfall of 2015

Tonight I was sitting at home and all of a sudden I smelt something that made me smile. I got out of my chair and looked out the window, it was raining. As I stared out the window I called my daughter which is 6. I told her “Take a deep breath, do you smell that? That is the smell of rain. It is the first rainfall of the year. Tonight there is a celebration in the wild. Tonight all the plants and animals are having a party. Soon the seeds will flourish and the dry brown mountains will turn green. Tonight everyone out there is getting wet, but they are all quenching their thirst. Tonight every plant and animal is looking up to the sky with a smile on their faces. I love rain.” And together, we stared out the window, looking at the rain.
