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?
