As a kid, I always hated the rain. I always loved bright sunny days. Even now as an adult, I enjoy getting outside on beautiful days and hiking, running, playing, and enjoying the sunshine. I can remember hearing the rhyme of “April Showers Bring May Flowers” from teachers when I was in school. I always dreaded hearing those words, because it usually meant indoor recess. Now when I hear “April Showers Bring May Flowers”, I no longer think of the negative but the positive. I am reminded that even the most unpleasant things, (like April showers), can bring about very enjoyable things in life, (like May flowers). Due to my lack of patience, I have a difficult time waiting for the flowers to bloom, but I have found that If I can find some patience, I will see that many of life’s greatest blessings come after difficult times. I hope you and your family will enjoy the beautiful flowers of May that are helped by the rainy days of April.
