52 Blessings Project Week #6





This week I am thankful for the rain. We don't get very much of it here since we have 362 days of sunshine but when we do it sure makes my day!
I love the smell, the clouds, and the sound as it hits the roof or the leaves outside. I love how after it rains everything just feels cleaner. Refreshed. Renewed.
I'm sure if I lived in a place like Washington or Oregon I wouldn't feel this way. But living in the Valey of the Sun makes you appreciate the rain and the beautiful rainbows that follow.

I agree...I love the rain AND I don't even care when it rains on my hair and makes it gross :)

I found you on Stie's site.

I live in Portland Oregon so I get the 362 days of rain. Yesterday we had sunshine and I was so happy I could cry!

The rainbow shot is beautiful.

That is one of my favorite things -- the smell of the desert after it rains! I love it (and miss it)!! That sure is something to be grateful for in sunny AZ!!

Holly said...

These pictures and your words brought this primary song to my mind: When I AM Baptised Which starts out:
"I like to look for rainbows whenever there is rain And ponder on the beauty of an earth made clean again."
I love the smell of rain! :)

I love the rain too! Paige was telling me how much Rex hates it, & I was shocked how could anyone hate rain! But, I guess if you live where it rains a lot it would be different. What a wonderful blessing!!

Cara, Your blog is so inspiring. I have loved scouring every last inch of it. I can't believe so many years passed that I didn't keep tabs on you. You are an amazing person. It was the best seeing you-yes even for 5 min. Have a super day and I'll get my act together soon & join the blogging fun.
