kid talk about rain

Since i shared about the conversation i had with my son about snow, i would like to take this time to share our conversation about rain a year ago…Every time it rains i am always reminded of this conversation…

One rainy afternoon, i was taking my son to go to his yearly appointment with his pediatrician…

i: oh no! its raining, i really hate it when it rains especially when im driving…

son: mom, rain is good…its always fun to play in the rain…

i: i dont like it when it rains…i like the sun more than the rain…

son: but mom, if there will be no rain, then there will be no plants and flowers…remember, u told me that plants and living things need water?  and u also said that u like looking at the flowers…u will not be able to see beautiful flowers and view when u are driving if there will be no rain…the farmers are usually happy when it rains…we will be able to pick good fruits if the trees had enough rain…

i: oh ur right, i should not complain…rain is important.. i should enjoy rain even when driving… thank u for reminding me…(to be honest, i was embarrassed with myself, a 4 year old kid was teaching me not to complain and to enjoy every situation)

  1. A beautiful and gentle reminder. If ONLY we could live this way. Give thanks in all circumstances (It is the pathway to a serene life and contentment (far better than any happiness only found by STRIVING or trying to change things which can’t be changed..

    1. ur right, if only..but unfortunately, it is human nature to complain…i am guilty of this…i am trying my best to see the good thing in everything, i fail most of the time but my son reminds me to have a heart like the kids heart…it is usually hard especially since i am a parent, i always think ahead…i guess i just have to increase my faith and trust in Him that everything will always be ok…He will take care of everything as long as i learn to seek His kingdom 1st in all situation
