Today is a very cold and very rainy morning and I love every bit of it. I love the rain. I truly do. The smell of the rain makes me happy, it reminds me of when I was younger and the house next to ours had a tin roof, the smell of the rain when it falls on the earth and the sound of the tin roof is something that I will treasure forever. I want to have more of those happy memories. I want our kids to remember the little things like that instead of the Christmas they got a PlayStation. I want them to remember the smell of baked cookies and hot cocoa on the morning of Christmas and all of us around the tree in our PJ's. I want them to know how much I enjoyed being an 80's kid and how much fun we had playing outside, climbing the fence to the little school across the street to get "ciruelas' prunes (believe me, real prunes from the tree are delish). Going to the small market to get fried chicken liver with tostones (I am SO not kidding- we loved it) and walking around the main street downtown, running behind my Mom that ALWAYS had something to buy. Going to our Uncle store and playing with toys and hiding between the ginormous amount of stuff in it. Walking home, with a hot empanada in hand. Those are the memories I treasure and the kind I want them to have. I am dreaming of a new place where we can build this memories. I know its goign to happen soon!!!!
