Finding Beauty In the Rain

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a fan of the rain. Really hate the wet stuff actually.  But I’m all about finding the beauty in everything around me.  It sure does rain a LOT in these woods so I’ve been searching for the beauty.  
I think I’ve found it.  It was a virtual waterfall the other day (seriously if you can see streams of rain in a photo, that’s some heavy rain!  See the streams?).  But as I looked past the pounding rain, I noticed all of the beauty the rain brings and I was thankful (but wet).  All of that green stuff in the background?  That would be brown if not for the rain!  All of those trees?  They would not be hovering over me and protecting the squirrels if not for the rain!

And after all of these April showers, I am very certain there will be May flowers!  So we will weather these storms and STREAMS of rain and we will be happy with their outcome and relish in all of the color that they bring for our Summer fun!  

Bring on the rain.  We have umbrellas and ponchos (and a house to hide in when it gets this heavy…GEESH).  Yes, Mother Nature, I respect you and all of your fury and I can find the beauty in your heavy tears.  Keep our ground moist, fuel our soil, and make our woods grow!  
In case you didn’t already know, I’m a huge fan of flowers and I think I see bunches on the horizon!  You can find beauty in anything if you look hard enough!  Keep looking and enjoy!

    I love rain! And we haven’t been getting anything around here so it’s really brown. Thanks for sharing a picture of what “green” looks like. I’d almost forgot! :/

    You know, Christy, the older I get the more I love rain. Not all the time, mind you, but for one thing, I can’t relax when it’s sunny out, so I use the rain to relax.
    Lovely post. 🙂

    I’m from Seattle and absolutely love the rain! Unfortunately during storms here in MN, there are times tornadoes are connected and THAT I’m not a fan of. I love all the green of your forest!

    Yes, hurricanes on the island always scared me, but here in The Woods, I’ve come to enjoy the rain!

    It actually can be relaxing and the babies and I are fond of dancing in the rain! 🙂

    Emmi – I do hope you get your rain soon! Glad you enjoyed our “green” and I know you will have that again in no time!
