This morning as I was washing lettuce for dinner tonight I got to thinking about a trip I took a few weeks ago. It was a cold, rainy day, much like today. My friends and I met at Starbucks, got our coffee and headed off to our meetings for the weekend. Everything was gray, wet and dreary. It rained and rained. We had a nice time at our meetings.
On our way home the next day the sun was out. A change was very evident. It seemed overnight the earth had transformed into a sea of green and white. White blossoms filled the trees. Green was covering the ground. Life was visible.
It is amazing how a rain can cause change. The washing can be good. The colorful, vibrance after the rain a joy.
