When it starts to rain, do you know what my kinds reach out for? Nope, not their raincoats, nor their rubber boots nor their umbrellas...
They would quickly seek out their drawing materials and start to draw a smiling sun; one after another. One of them would be assigned to draw more; one would start running around the house to distribute the drawings of the smiling sun from one window to another, from one glass door to another.
They would place those drawings where the sun usually shines through. Why? Because they believe that when it starts to rain, the smiling sun would stop the rain from falling. And oh, how they believe this.
And you know what, most of the times, the rain would stop. That is, as long as the rain doesnt start pouring like crazy; because by then, I would tell them, it would be too late.
I dont know, is this the power of their belief; of being positive or is it really the power of the smiling sun? Maybe both :)
Actually, the magic of the smiling sun against rain is a childhood 'belief' coming from me. As a child, my playmates and I would usually draw smiling sun on the pavement to chase the rain away.
Since the girls have used up their chalks, they've decided to draw using pens and papers instead :)
