Good morning! We made it to another Friday, albeit a rainy one here in San Diego. I’ve always loved the rain. I grew up in Arizona and we had some whopping monsoon seasons. San Diego rain doesn’t compare to the glorious beauty of an Arizona lightning storm and downpour…but I still love it.
Ever since I was a child in my first science fair, I was fascinated with the water cycle: how rain falls, cleanses the air and earth around us, and it evaporates back up into the clouds, leaving a beautifully fresh and clean feeling around. Only to be recycled and fall again. And have you ever had the pleasure of smelling the desert after rainfall. It’s glorious!
Anyway, I digress. It’s FRIDAY! And that means today we have a quote! John Geddes, a fellow blogger has said,
“…I don’t just wish you rain, Beloved – I wish you the beauty of storms…”
Rain can symbolize many things : dark times, sadness, or depression, but also renewal, a fresh start, and beauty. It’s all in how you perceive it. And if you’re going through a hard time right now, try to find the beauty in the moment; cling to the hope that the storm will pass, leaving a fresh and uplifted you.
Have a wonderful weekend.
