Rainy Wednesday – One Liner Wednesday & #JusJoJan 2023

I woke to a hard rain pounding the roof this morning. Normally I like to sleep through the rain but since it was morning, I simply took the opportunity to lie and listen. There is no changing the weather.

“The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain.”

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Longfellow lead an interesting life. I do not think I mentioned it here, but in December I went to see the movie “I Heard the Bells” with my friend. It was a good Christmas movie to see. I never knew the backstory of how Longfellow came to write this beloved Christmas carol.

Now before this turns into an SoCS post, I will leave you with this.

  1. I can’t believe I’m admitting this, but do you know… I always thought that song was Smoky Mountain Range.🤦🏼‍♀️ Apparently I never actually paid attention to the lyrics. But agree with the others, love his voice!

  2. My little brother and I used to get into the 1948 Packard one cushion seat each and listen to the rain. I hadn’t thought of that in a while until I read this. Thanks.
