The Rain

September 28, 2008

Maybe it is raining, but that makes the grass grow greener tomorrow. Maybe the concrete is grey, but that gives it a needed rinsing. The strong gusts which drive the falling droplets also spread plant seeds and ensure their survival. The small animals now taking shelter from the rain will soon drink the water which it has provided. While I spend today inside because of the rain, I can spend tomorrow harvesting a more bountiful crop from our garden.

The rain gives me a headache, which in turn reminds me to be thankful for being alive.
