We never know what a day may bring….or what treasures might be dropped right in front of us. This was that kind of day. A glorious much-needed rain….all. day. long. When it finally stopped, out I went with my little dogs to the backyard only to see a rainbow! While I grabbed the camera and attempted to catch the quickly fading colors, hubby called. He was all about the brilliant rainbow. How could we be in the same town and have different rainbows?!? Go out to the front yard, he said.
And there I found the other end that I know must have been hiding the pot of gold. After just a couple of shots…my favorite five-year old arrived. Did you see the rainbow, K? (I asked) She looked at the skittles in the sky, unimpressed, and then her eyes lit up. OH! I have to check on my flowers! (she said…running to the end of my porch)
And with my camera in hand….I found the greatest treasure of all. Rainbows come in many forms. While I have much concern about the future of our world…… that moment when I see a child concerned about “her flowers” after the rain….well….a little hope is restored. Love you, my K. Your mommy is smiling from heaven.
Be nice to people. You never know what they may be dealing with today. ♥
