It is funny how life throws mishaps large and small you way...and it is more hysterical how we deal with them. This story about a little girl and rain shows how sometimes just letting go is what you need. I hope it brings a smile to your heart and helps you remember how if you can still see and believe like a child, that anything can happen. A little girl had been shopping with her Mom in Wal-Mart.
