Grandma Listens To Little Girl Talk To Her Mom And Moments Later, She’s Running Through The Rain
I love the sun. You might even call me a sun worshipper.
The moment the clouds part to reveal a clear sky, I am outside and in my happy place.
Long walks, bike riding, rollerblading, beach volleyball – even just sitting on the balcony or veranda watching people walk by, trying to listen in on their conversations about what they want to do on the weekend. If the sun is out, I’m out!
And when the sun isn’t, I tend to hibernate. Rainy days make me feel rainy inside.
Depending on the season and where you live, rainy days are cold and grey and get you wet.
And some days, you’re soaked to the bone and shivering if you’re not prepared.
But every cloud has a silver lining, right? Dark stormy clouds and rainfall are needed and unavoidable – and with them, comes wisdom.
This is a charming video that comes loaded with insight. In 4 minutes, there’s a really good chance you might have a paradigm shift.
There are a few good threads in here, a handful of lessons that span life, death, parenting, mentorship, openness – to name just a few!
Grandma is recounting a moment. She recalls a time when it was raining really hard, she says, “The kind of rain that gushes over the tops of rain gutters, so much in a hurry to hit the Earth it has no time to flow down the spout.”
She’s standing under the shelter of a building as other passers-by stop and gather around to wait out the rain.
There are a mother and child in particular that catch her attention because of the nature of their conversation.
The daughter is bored of waiting for the rain to stop and insists they run through it. Mom is reluctant, yet still, the little girl pushes.
They go back and forth, until the child makes a remarkable comment that stops mom in her tracks, and makes time stand still for the people standing around.
Needless to say, it was profound. And after a moment of letting it settle, everyone starts to run through the rain.
And the best part? This short film is based on a true story.
This happened somewhere! Leave it to a child to say something that makes adults pump the breaks.
I swear, out of the mouths of babes comes wisdom that can make you rethink how things work.
I’ll be sure to apply this life lesson to my own thinking.
