Today I’m celebrating something so very simple and yet I feel like it’s giving me a new lease on life. After months of drought—it’s raining and raining hard. The scorching summer weather has been driven out by a drenching downpour and turned our brown world back to green. After watering our 100 year old  live oaks for weeks, seeing the ferns on the branches awaken seems like a miraculous rebirth.
The sun and heat will return again and bake Houston with the oppressive temperatures and humidity we call summer weather. Still, in one stormy day nature reminded me that something as small as a summer shower can bring joy to an entire city.
If the trees could sing, this is what would fill the air today...
