I have waited all weekend for the skies to open up. I finally got my garden hose out and watered my plants and seed last night. And of course, it rained.
But nonetheless I am thankful for the rain. I woke up this morning to brightly colored plants and green grass growing in my bleak dirt yard. I am thankful for the rain that washes the dust and dirt away and gives life to a fresh new day.
