Today I am thankful for rain. We should all be thankful and remember that we don't drink mere water. There's no such thing.
Whether from the kitchen sink, an overpriced plastic bottle, or in our coffee, we drink the rain. And we eat rain. Whether it's the juiciness of an apple, the flavor of a good steak, or the succulence of a perfect green bean, we eat the rain. As surely and completely as the deer, the mushrooms, the wildflowers, or the trees, we depend upon the rain.
No matter your culture, species, or religious outlook, all living creatures share a need for life-giving rain. I need to be more thankful. In torrents and trickles, water falls from the heavens, and we all drink.
