It's raining, it's pouring...

And I love it. The way it smells, the way it sounds drumming on the roof. The way it scrubs the air so clean you can taste it. It's like a new beginning, washing away all that came before, leaving a blank slate, a chance to begin again; each drop full of promises and potential.


Maybe that's what captivates me most. Like Mother Nature's reset button, rain has the power to start over. It means growth and life and opportunity. Without April showers, there would be no May flowers. No puddles to splash in, no sprinkles to sing in. And there wouldn't be any rainbows to transform a gray sky into a kaleidoscope of color.


So the next time the forecast calls for a chance of rain, remember to look for these silver linings. And pack an umbrella.
