Though a rain MUST fall, the sun does exist.

One word can pretty much sum up the past week of weather here in upstate NY:

So the blue sky and sunshine of yesterday was a delight! Frankly, no one has really complained about all the rain except those affected by flooding issues, simply because for the most part this water sure does beat the alternative: dangerous drought, like that that fueled the fires in Colorado for example (and other locales).

We tend to equate sunshine with happiness and positives, but like the tough times in life's adventures, the rainy days have their merit and in the long run do enhance life.

"Into each life a little rain must fall"
... quote within poem "The Rainy Day" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

HOW we hear and HOW we interpret and the ideas upon which we expand make all the difference! So. Let's visit the source of the sentence which is known so well that it fits the classification of "cliche":

First, the simple words... as written:

Listen to a muscian's means of conveying the same words!!!


We have goals, and sometimes the proverbial rain feels overwhelming. We see the problems and pitfalls. But within the negatives and sometimes BECAUSE of them, good things are nurtured and can thrive.

Forget the words of negativity. Ok, so rain's falling now and then. Use your 'rain', because somewhere in each drop is the music of transforming, positive change.

    I agree with you, when dealing with Mother Nature there isn't much you can do about it so you might as well be thankful for what you're receiving. You may not like rain but I think drought is worse. We live in Northern California and took a country-wide trip a few years ago. My husband commented about how beautiful the lush, green foliage in many of the southern states and at the same time both of us constantly complained about the humidity. I pointed out to him that the constant water in the air was what was in a big part responsible for the beauty of the landscape. It's a good thing we don't all find the same thing appealing or we'd have one very crowded area with a lot of nothing surrounding it.

    I love the rain...especially now here in Ajijic, Mexico. It really cleans things off and the mountains get so lush and green. I awoke this morning to a nice rain with thunder and lightning. And woo hoo we didn't lose power.
    Have a terrific week.

    Thank you sound. I watched both the videos. Loved
    them both. I love the rain, except as you said when
    there is flooding. We have enjoyed some unusual
    winter rain here and the atmosphere is so clear which
    in turns makes me happier and able to focus on my
    healthy lifestyle. Congratulations on the Popular Blog.
    Who was it that also said, "Baby the rain must fall."?

    The rain nourishes our land like water nourishes our bodies. There are definite positives to the rain.
