"Sometimes it rains on sunny days. The sparkling sun-christened drops create a charming sight. With out-stretched arms and open hands, supplicate the skies and gather your gifts. Welcome each drop that falls from the heavens. The sun showers justice and mercy, gain and loss. Be grateful. Be patient. Wait for the next good thing to come, knowing that it will, knowing that the bad will pass - knowing that there is no darkness, only the absence of light." -Noelle Carmelier, From the book If Tree's Could Talk by Carol Doemel.
