I love it when it rains.
It’s been raining essentially nonstop here since Sunday evening.
Rain is so soothing. The mere sound of it is relaxing and helps me sleep. There’s something about watching a rainstorm out the window that is just so mesmerizing. The enormity of the storm, the wonders of nature.
Rain is good for the Earth and for us. It helps the flowers and trees grow, and then they give off precious air for us to breathe. Rain cleans the Earth and gives a sense of a new beginning afterwards – and sometimes with a rainbow!
On a rainy day, sitting inside with a mug of tea and a good book is the picture of perfection for this girl! When it rains at night, I have no need for my sound machine. The soft lull of the rain tapping against the windowpanes and the cars splashing softly through the puddles is enough to drift off to sleep.
I love sunny days, too! And snowy ones. But there is a special place in my heart for the rain. After all, water is pretty essential to human life!
