Jewels of a Storm
Resting on broad hosta leaves
- jewels of a storm
These past weeks have been filled with so much rain. Every single day this precipitation falls from the sky dampening summer plans. No hiking the mountain today- severe thunderstorms on the way. Cancel the soccer game because the field is a swamp.
I was feeling a bit down as the raindrops fell for about the 8th day in a row. When was this going to end and the summer sun return?
After a bit of time, I looked out the window and was shocked to see sun! I went out my front door to relish in the rays. I looked down and paused in awe. The raindrops were clinging to plants and glistening across my garden. It looked like a fairy had sprinkled some magic over my plants turning raindrops into diamonds. This sparkle of the reflecting sun reminded me that beauty can be found after days of gloom. Those jewels of the storm were a treasure found.
This seemed to be nature’s reminder to me that beauty can be found in unexpected times and places. Just keep your eyes open!
