Walking to my car after work this afternoon, I felt something I haven’t felt in the longest time: a raindrop … then another, and another, and another. Really, truly, absolutely, it was raining.
And it was glorious – brief, but glorious.
So often when we get caught in the rain, we hurry for shelter or quickly open the umbrella. Not today. I consciously slowed my pace, and savored each cooling drop.
Within 15 minutes, even before I got home, the rain had disappeared, and the sun had come back out in force.
We’re not out of the sauna yet, but there’s hope.
