My son has the book Duck and Goose, How are you feeling? By Tad Hills.
One page, either duck or goose, I can’t remember which one, is strolling through a field. It’s a dark, grey day, the flowers are closed and he is ‘sad.’
The next page, duck or goose is jumping for joy. The sky is blue and dotted with white clouds, the sun is shining and the flowers are open and bright. He is ‘happy.’
I think that is why I have been a little sad recently.
We had snow on Mother’s Day, and it’s been dark, windy, rainy and cold since.
However, the rain doesn’t always make me sad. In the spring when the rain is accompanied by some warmth, I love watching the rain, playing in the rain and listening to the rain. And I love the smell of rain, just after a spring shower.
