Seedlings Take Hold!

Nourishment
"Criticism, like rain, should be gentle enough to nourish a man's growth without destroying his roots."
~Frank A Clark ~

Can't think of anyone who doesn't enjoy a gentle rain. A slow paced constant soaking that just gets to the root of things without destroying the structure of it's being. Encouraging growth, resulting in spectacular blooms for all to benefit. Classifying this as a constructive rain nourishing the ideals of mankind. 
Harsh, heavy rain washes away opportunity, rotting the foundation with no chance for future development, flooding the spirit with dampness, stunting enthusiasm. Classifying this as destructive rain, creating a dense fog of everlasting doubt. 
Take a walk after a gentle rain, see the soft scouring pad that, Mother Nature uses to instill confidence creating an environment for new seedlings to take hold, one little droplet at a time!
