I’ve never been so thankful to see it rain before, ever. It made me smile and think of these things.
• The Morton’s salt girl. One of my favorite logos of all time (my advertising background coming out) and I remember we always had a box of it in the cabinet at home as a kid and I have a box in my own kitchen right now.
• One of my favorite poets as a child and even still, RLS.
The rain is raining all around,
It falls on field and tree,
It rains on the umbrellas here,
And on the ships at sea.
– Robert Louis Stevenson
• The Bible verse, Matthew 5:45
“….for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.”
I can never hear or read that verse without adding the phrase, “and sometimes, it just rains” to the end. I remember my dad saying that and it always made me laugh. Still does.
