First rain of May

Today has been quite a break from the summer sun’s scorching heat. It was actually cloudy when I woke up this morning. It got me excited that it might actually rain today.

When I was young, my mom told us that taking a shower under the first rain of May would make you beautiful. My sisters and I would always watch out for the first rain of May and play in our garden, under the rain. I loved that memory.

And today, it’s the first day of May and it rained. No, I didn’t take a shower under the rain, but it made me miss my sisters and it reminded me of my mom.

Wala lang, sharing.
