Aguardar como aqua de mayo
 
Does this mean to hold precious, or to hold sacred?

como agua de mayo = just what is needed, very welcomed (because it was eagerly awaited), spring showers

venir como agua de mayo = to be just what the doctor ordered, to be a godsend, to be just what was needed

The word aguadar is merely a usages in my country.

I agree with Rusty.

"Aguardar como agua de mayo" is to expect something very eagerly.

Agree, is expect something very eagerly, is waiting like the farmers do for the spring showers
A common one
"Espero mi nómina como agua de mayo, que tengo que comprar muchas cosas"
