If All Of The Rain Drops Were Lemon Drops


Do you know that song? 

“If all of the rain drops were lemon drops and gum drops oh what a world it would beeeee.  I’d stand outside with my mouth open wide going ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.”

I find myself thinking of it’s sentiment today. 

What if vacuuming made you skinny?

What if doing laundry made you truly happy?

What if you sang instead of grumbled and gagged while cleaning the toilets?

Imagine if carbs were good for you, and red wine never gave you a headache.

Or a world with no bullying.

What if you really only needed 5 hours a sleep a night to function and live a life full of joy.

What if Starbucks really did deliver?

Imagine a world in which dreams really did come true…

But wait, maybe the sky is full of lemon drops and gum drops, maybe…. just maybe we really have to look at out lives in a different way.  Today I choose to be thankful for every little blessing that we do have.

Counting my blessings, hoping the rain is really made of lemon drops . xoxo


  1. And what a wonderful world THAT would be 🙂 ♥

    Have a great week!

  2. Considering that it’s been storming here all day, that really would be something. And, just for the record, doing laundry DOES make me happy, but I’m just weird that way. If it makes you feel any better, I’d rather have a root canal than dust or vacuum.

    BTW, that was always my favorite song from Barney. =)

  3. Amen to that!

  4. Can you imagine how many lemon Vodka drinks we could make? or Limoncellos? or just plain lemonade? Lemon you know, burns the fat! Gotta look at the bright side of things!

  5. You don’t sing while cleaning the toilet?:)
    Yes it is all the way you look at it my friend Hugs B

  6. smiles…starbucks delivery would ruin me…dreams coming true would be nice, but could get scary as well…not sure i want all my dreams…but thankful for what i got surely…

  7. You know you made me sing that song, right?

    I quite like that lemon drop world.

  8. Thank you now that song will be stuck in my head all day. but, you’re right it’s all in the way you look at it. But, I do wish Starbuck’s delivered right now. That would be an amazing thing for sure.

  9. Nice article, thanks for the information.

  10. I must be grouchy today because my first thought to complete that sentence was “If all the raindrops were lemon drops we’d have lots of cavities.”

    However, I do like your positive thinking that follows it.

  11. Mmm mmmmm

  12. Love this post! Haha, what if babies could change their own diapers?

  13. Today I shall call you Positive Patty!! :}
