{spring things: april showers}


"Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain."
~author unknown

. . . happily, there have been more sunny days than rain so far this spring, but there are no illusions that the rain will not fall, {for it is april, after all}, only the eternal optimism of may flowers . . . and when the rain does come, we shall greet it with red lipstick and our best umbrellas, and dance if we must . . .

I have always rejoiced in the rain! I sleep more sound in the rain! And, metaphorically, I have learned that the greater the rainstorm, the more beautiful is the sunlight!
