Thoughts on Rain

Rain on a leaf

It’s a dreary day in Ireland today. As the rain falls heavy in July, I am reminded to stop and see the beauty in the world around me. Sometimes, I think that rainy days are the Universe’s way of saying “girl, take a time out”. It allows us to read for the day and indulge in another world completely; to lie on the couch in comfy clothes and watch TV; it gives us the beautiful scent of “rain on the ground that was warm before and is wet now”… you know that smell… there must be a name for it but I don’t know what it is. Rain can give us permission to press the pause button on life, on busy-ness, on feeling under pressure to go places and do things when really, your soul needs a break.
