It was a beautiful day today.

The sun was shining and the kids were laughing.

We finished our chores and went for a lovely stroll through the forest that is just a few minutes from our home.

It was delightful.

And then the rain came.

It was expected, but unwelcome.

It made everything murkier, colder, less friendly.

I don’t know how long this shower will last.

Perhaps the clouds will clear up overnight.  Perhaps they will linger a little longer.

But eventually, the rain will go away and the sun will come out again.

It always does.
