So often (especially here in England) when it rains/drizzles/buckets it down/pelts it down/spits/pours, people describe the weather as
I'm guilty of doing exactly the same. (Note: I'm not saying it's wrong to say this, I'm trying to point out the other side of rain, excluding the flooding that can happen) However, with my own beliefs I'm taught that everything is a blessing, and I'm trying to see the positive in everything (apart from worms and snakes, from which I can't see a single positive. They may eat soil & vermin, but so do other animals!) Whatever your beliefs I'm pretty sure you can see logic in the following reasons which show the advantages of rain
If all we had was sun....
such pretty flowers
...and we never had rain....
such a precious thing
Nothing would grow
Plants would die.
Animals would die.
We would become extinct without water.
Water is essential to life. It's worth more than gold,
more than diamonds,
more than chocolate.
A lot of people don't get much water. Certainly not water in a tap that's clean and easy to access.
Shouldn't we be thankful for every time it rains, instead of dissing the weather just because it doesn't suit our mood?
I'd love to hear your opinions about rain - does it make you miserable, or is it just 'there'? Do you watch/read/listen to the weather every day, or do you just see what's out the window in the morning? (Which is what I do...unless snow is involved. But that's a topic for another time).
