Looking out my window, it seems like the sky is bathing the West Coast of Canada with glorious liquid sunshine. This morning, I awoke to yet another perfectly gloomy day here in Vancouver, and I couldn’t help but be happy about it (I know, I’m weird sometimes). So I thought I would share the top 5 things I love about the rain since I’m feeling so cheerful about it anyways. I hope you enjoy!
#5 – The luscious aroma of the rain washing the flowers. Because I live in a place with gardens all around, the smell of the flowers can be quite pungent when it rains. The scents of all the beautifully organized flowers fills the air like a natural freshener making me want to take deep, cleansing breathes over and over again.
#4 – How nature uses the rain to scrub our neighborhoods clean once again. Ever looked around on the first day after a big rain session and noticed that everything looks nicer and fresher? That’s probably because the rain has a special way of being nature’s own cleaning system. Ahhhh! Doesn’t that feel nice?
#3 – The rain can be SO romantic if you happen to catch the right moment. Caught in a sudden downpour with a lover or partner? If you’ve not planned anything important, instead of running for cover, take a minute or two to enjoy each other with the sensation of the rain showering upon you. Whether it’s misty out or even if fat droplets are pouring from the sky, kissing or playing around in the rain can be about as romantic as it gets. Take my word for it, if you haven’t already tried it, you should! Mmmmmmn.
#2 – Water brings life to everything we know. Of course, one of the most important reasons to love the rain is that without water, there would be no life. Water is an essential ingredient in sustaining our livelihood here on planet earth, so I think it should be respected and appreciated in a big way.
#1 – It’s the perfect excuse to curl up with a good book and a cup of joe. Is there anything better than being all snug with the rain pattering on the roof or a window nearby? Not in my books, that’s for sure! It’s my number one choice for this Top 5, and for a good reason too. The idea of catching up on my favourite romance novel and spending the day wrapped in a cozy blanket appeals on so many levels, I love it! The rain brings a sense of peace and harmony that can have you relaxing in no time. It’s no wonder I sometimes pray for a gloomy, wet day! The rain truly is ahhhhh-mazing!!!
Do you love the rain too? No matter how the weather is where you are, I hope you have a great TGIFriday and weekend ahead! Cheers all and we’ll chat again soon!
