“April Showers Bring May Flowers” and Patience!
Did you know that the saying “April showers bring May flowers” derives from a short poem, written by Thomas Tusser in 1557? The poem’s meaning sprouts from the idea of the heavy rains of April being so unpleasant, to producing beautiful flowers in the month of May. The short poem encompasses a life lesson in patience. At times when life can be so unbearable, think of the positive outcome and know that in time, great things will bloom in your direction!
“Sweet April showers
Do spring May flowers”
