Granger Whitelaw, My Weekly Thoughts: Rain Drops

 Granger Whitelaw: Rain Drops

I awoke this morning to the sound of pouring rain on my roof and the wind pushing the trees. I love it when it rains. I love the feeling of rain drops on my head and face, I love that is cleans everything, I love that it reminds me of my childhood…Why is that? Does it make you feel that way to? It also makes me think of God, the 40 day flood and for some reason, peace…. it is a calming feeling for the spirit.

The first song that comes to my mind whenever it rains is “Just the two of us, by Bill Withers & Grover Washington Jr.” Why? I guess one of the lines, ” I hear the crystal raindrops fall on the window down the hall and it becomes the morning dew”. I used to sing this song when I was 13 in Junior High when my friend Broderick introduced me to it in choir (yes, I sang in choir for years). I of course think of “rain drops keep falling on your head” and “singin in the rain” as well, both iconic songs, and if you have not listened to them in a while, just click the links and enjoy.

So today it is going to rain all day. Me? I’m going to take my 3 year old daughter outside, sing in the rain, swim in the pool, jump in puddles and thank God for every minute of it. Then I think I will take the girls to a movie and eat popcorn!

Next time it rains on you, try this out, it makes for a wonderful time!

Best Wishes,

  1. It’s not only you, I’m also experiencing things and remembering things of some things that will happen like rain. I don’t know but remembering the songs while raining is remembering also the feeling on that day that we have experience hearing the song while raining.

  2. I feel you bro, there is always a time when we have that kind of feeling. Anyways, just feel that feeling because it’s very rare on us to have such time for that kind of feeling. I like this blog and thanks for it.

  3. I love rain! Well, everybody loves rain since it is a very special thing that well really feel you comfortable in feeling and remembering the past things that you have done before that are really unforgettable.

  4. I know this feeling too ” I love the feeling of rain drops on my head and face, I love that is cleans everything, I love that it reminds me of my childhood”. It’s so nice hearing the drops of rain especially when you are on your bed lying. You can feel very relaxed and the cool breeze is really good even though literally there isn’t in the area but the presence of the sound of the raindrops make it possible. Anyway thanks for sharing this article about raindrops and what you feel about raindrops is really common and we can relate to it.

  5. I like the feeling too and I think it’s the feeling of our childhood that is marked on our mind and we can’t really forget the feeling of it and it’s really a nice feeling especially if you are listening to the raindrops of the rain without having any problems on your family life or social life or any problem because it can really make you feel relaxed.

  6. I remember when i was a child when I was awaken by the coldness brought by the rain, It was dawn and I think its the perfect time to think of happy memories. While reading I really feel you, you brought back those times when worries were out of my mind. This will make the readers remember of the happy times instead of problems. Very nice post.

  7. You are such a sweet father “Then I think I will take the girls to a movie and eat popcorn!”, though every father is kind and loving to their children I think it is really great that most people and father are like that not just to their daughters but also to their sons. I guess it is nice to have a family if your father is sweet and really takes care of the family more than himself.

  8. I think this was being done fine and fun “So today it is going to rain all day. Me? I’m going to take my 3 year old daughter outside, sing in the rain”, Children likes going into the rain and singing along with the rain and dance with the rain. Well, I like those things too maybe you can round me off to children ha ha ha ha ha lol. Anyway it’s not raining in my place now but I think I will remember this blog if it will rain.

  9. Rain drops is just amazing thing that nature do. In my place we love raindrops since the sounds of raindrops makes us feel sleepy and at rest. I always want to hear raindrops and it is more cool hearing it in evening where you are already ready for sleep. Anyway thanks for sharing your article to us about raindrops and I like this one.

  10. I so much love this feeling literally “I awoke this morning to the sound of pouring rain on my roof and the wind pushing the trees, I love hearing the pouring of the rain and making a sound in my roof, it’s a wonderful feeling that will make me feel relaxed. I don’t know what is in the rain that makes me that feeling but I think it is the coldness that it delivers to my body, a not so very cold but a cold that I feel comfortable.

  11. Haha well for me I love playing at the rain. It really colden my warm body and it is so relaxing. Since I was a child me and my cousin love to go play at the rain and I think it never gets old and it will never be, our age is the only that gets old. I always remember when we always go running around side of the streets and then playing water guns haha it is really funny.

  12. Haha you really are a good dad for making your child experience such like this one “Me? I’m going to take my 3 year old daughter outside, sing in the rain, swim in the pool, jump in puddles and thank God for every minute of it.”, you are a rich man but you still do this stuff and for me it’s amazing. I like how you treat your children.

  13. I live in a house where there is air conditioner and a house that does not have an air conditioner and as what I have observed living in a house where there is no air conditioner, you can really feel the coldness and the slight magic that rain brings to the house and yeah! It’s some sort of nice feeling. I can relate with you on that because I have experienced also the one that you said on the above article ha ha ha and it’s funny knowing that one (laugh out loud).

  14. Whenever I’m sitting in the classroom and it starts to rain, there’s that characteristic smells of rain followed by a switch on good moods throughout the class. So when every time I think about this, I keep on asking why does this happen, and what is that smell? And then I remember my highschool teacher once said that it’s all because rain releases ozone which makes us feels good, also ozone molecules are negatively charged.
