The rain pattered down on me, but I didn't care. Because I could feel it, hitting my hands, landing in my hair. Because for the first time since my brother's death, I could actually feel. I closed my eyes and raised my face to the sky.

Thank you, Lord, went through my head. Thank you.

And then I laughed with joy. I could feel! I was alive! And I danced around in the rain like I was crazy lunatic. I didn't care.

"Cora, what on earth are you doing?" The screen door slammed behind the person.

I glanced up and saw Jason, staring at me like I was crazy.

"I can feel," I told him. I laughed and danced around in circles, declaring to the sky, "I can feel!"

Then Jason smiled, too, and came out into the rain. We danced the day away.

Thank you, Lord. Thank you.
