I love the rain. I especially love the rain when it comes on a Saturday morning–thereby preventing me from doing the list of Saturday chores that currently reside on my list of things to be done. You may think I say this with irony, but I am absolutely sincere when I say, I love it when Saturday chores get rained out. It means I get to spend more time with my children, more time with my wife, and more time relaxing. Plus, as an added bonus, the desert area I live in gets just a bit more moisture that is so necessary for life. And so, with gratitude, I say thanks for the rain and the for the rest.
