Just a sprinkle of rain

Saturday, March 30, 2013

... and see the difference.

This was last week...

Today we have been to Point View Reserve and I took a photo more or less on the same spot after our sprinkling of rain yesterday. Look how much greener the grass is.

It really made me think. If grass can respond like this, just think how our bodies respond to water and nutrition, sleep, mental and spiritual care.

  Interesting that I've just read this after writing the new profile for True Blue and in it I mention we welcome challenges like we welcome a much needed rain to nourish the earth.

    beautiful. our mountains here in Mexico will act the same way when we start to get rain. right now they are dry and brown but will be green and lush towards the end of June.

    It's like when you eat really good and drink lots of water your skin looks so much better!

    emoticon Pretty scenery. When you return from tomorrow's trek, how about doing a little rain dance! Then send some of it to Texas.
