Dear Perfect Stranger,

Don’t you just love it when it’s raining but still sunny? It’s like having the best of both worlds. It’s not that sunny today but it is warm and when I checked the weather this morning it said we’re due for some rain.

So many people say that they love the rain but do they really? Do they appreciate the gentle pitter-patter sound it can make and the great thundering during a storm? Do they appreciate the smell after a rainfall when the worms come out to play? Do they enjoy wearing rain boots and rain coats and still getting wet? Do they enjoy the way the sun peeps out from behind the clouds after a rainfall? Do they recognize the colours created on the roads and sidewalks as pools of water form? Do they appreciate the budding of trees and flowers after a spring rain?

Maybe they do and maybe they don’t. There’s one thing that I love about the rain and that is the promise of sunshine to come!


Your friendly picker upper 🙂
