Rain... rain... rain

It has been raining for the past couple of nights. I think it has been raining all night this week. It is not just a simple rain but it is a heavy steady rain that lasted hours after hours.

Rain always reminds me of home in the Philippines where you can hear the steady dropping of the rain drops from the tin roof. It reminds me of my younger years where we play paper boats in our canal where the water drops. It reminds me of my childhood friends where we formed friendship and bonding. Life was very simple then... kids playing outside the in the front yard, running around catching and saving water in containers and yes showering in the cold water from the gutter. Those were simple joys but a memory that always brings a smile....

I wish Andrea can experience some of the simple things that a small place in a small town can offer. A place far from the comfortable life we have here in the USA. I want her to experience the life her cousins live so that she can always appreciate what she has here. Besides, I want her to experience the Filipino side in her...

Maybe when she will be a little older...

Labi na ug bagyo nga matanggong ka didto ky dili maagian ang dalan. sus pundo sa eskwelahan walay klase mag sge mi tong its, nya ligo dayon ulan.
