Ever notice how during a rain storm everyone is darting off into their car or work. Even huddling with strangers in any alcove they can find trying not to get wet. Putting on hats, galoshes, a raincoat, and the biggest umbrella they can find. All so they can avoid one of the most necessary things in life.
As they run around trying not to get wet they are forgetting that flowers need rain in order to bloom. So next time its raining forget the umbrella and let it rain on you. Feel the rain wash over you, even for just a moment, knowing you to will bloom because of it.
