The inspiration for starting this Feel the Rain®️ website came two years after my mom died from heart failure. During those first two years I went from being absolutely devastated to learning to accept what had happened and wanting to feel happiness again. I came to realize that, up until that point, I had not fully embraced the idea of living each moment, and I decided then that I would strive to do so in the future even though it would be without my mom. The phrase "feel the rain" summarizes the approach to life that I want to achieve, and has a special meaning for me since my daughter and I love to walk and swim together in the rain. My hope is that this can be a place where people help support and celebrate each other through life's experiences, and where everyone can come a little closer to finding their own version of "feeling the rain".
