Rain Comes

The rain fell so hard that I could have surfed down the street.

But afterwards the hydrangea  - the plant that loves water, hence it is named after 'hydra' meaning water in Greek - absolutely sparkled.

It made me think how the rain that seems to fall so hard in our lives at times, must also eventually stop - and what we have gone through leaves us sparkling like a diamond that has been cut to perfection.

As someone once said: Life is like a blue sky ... the rest is just weather.
