Sunstorms

Getting drenched on the way to your car can dampen your mood quickly. 

The contradiction of sun and steady rain at the same time can raise it right back up.

I grew up calling it a sunstorm when the clouds parted but we still got sprinkled on. It was never much of a storm, really. Not like yesterday.

I was driving in clear, soft sunlight, not too bright or glaring. My windshield wipers cleared the front window of a steady, if not heavy, rainfall.

It struck me just how beautiful and rare the combination was. And despite the rush hour traffic and earlier drenching, I made a point to appreciate it. It was a beauty I could have easily ignored.

I’m glad I didn’t. 

What’s beautiful in your world today?
