It’s been rainy here.
Today, the sun is trying to peek through, but the clouds will win the day and rule the week to come, if forecasts are correct.
I want sunshine, please, and plenty of it.
I’ll even trade the milder temperatures we’ve had this year for some blue skies.
There’s just one problem.
We need this rain.
Rivers run full, if muddy, and streams that had faded to trickles in the fall are rushing and churning over rocks again.
So, truthfully, I should be thankful for another day with wind-shield wipers on.

I need the rain.
I am not enjoying it.
I am tired of it,
but I need it, somehow, and I am asking for it to bloom into something I can’t yet see.
Be blessed today,
