Living in the Northwest, it is almost impossible to avoid the rain. Actually, let me re-phrase that, it is impossible. Over the past couple of days, of non-stop rain showers, I have realized that there is something special about the rain; it is Nature at its finest. The trees, rivers, and every other aspect of Nature’s surroundings, embrace it and take what they need in order to thrive. So rather than complaining about the rain, I have decided to find joy in the rain and accept it gracefully for what it is: Pure and Natural Beauty.
