Love the Rainstorms

Look at this picture. Remember the days when playing in the rain was fun? Well maybe for some of us those days are still now. But one thing that really stood out to me is how happy she looks. She isn't concerned that she is getting all wet or that the people are rushing to and fro around her. She is taking the time to be happy even during a time that might for some be a trial.

President Monson said, "This is our one and only chance at mortal life—here and now. The longer we live, the greater is our realization that it is brief. Opportunities come, and then they are gone. I believe that among the greatest lessons we are to learn in this short sojourn upon the earth are lessons that help us distinguish between what is important and what is not. I plead with you not to let those most important things pass you by as you plan for that illusive and nonexistent future when you will have time to do all that you want to do. Instead, find joy in the journey—now." Amen!

So let us all take the time to find the joy even in the rainstorm. If you think about it we all need water.
