Have you ever gazed upon a raindrop, a dewdrop, a teardrop...
Each one yielding a reflection of light, encapsulating a rainbow of possibilties. They capture a little world within; a promise, purity, an enlightenment.
Raindrops unite to become rainfall and bring moisture to the earth, bringing flowers, trees and crops to life. It is a fundamental necessity for without it we shall die.
Dewdrops that dance on the lawn, an accumulation from the evening coolness that lingered until dawn. A delectable treat to walk barefoot through in the early morning light, causing the tiny prisms of color to twinkle beneath one's toes.
And a teardrop encompassing the feeling of sadness or heartache. But these transparent drops that travel down the cheek may also reflect laughter, joy and overwhelming gaiety.
As you set about the week ahead may you be greeted by raindrops that bring flowers to your door. Kick off your shoes and walk barefoot through the morning dew. Shed a little tear for those less fortunate than yourself or laugh 'till it brings tears to your eyes.
Life is good, drink it in and enjoy.
