When I was driving home, I got caught in a thunder storm, at times I could barely see out my window.
Again, a smile on my face, not so much.
But then as I got closer to home, the rain stopped.
Despite the doom and gloom of the clouds, the most magnificent rainbow appeared.
That put a smile on my face.
Trust me when I say you just had to be there (much better in real life!)
It was a double rainbow, clear as can be.
I felt like a child driving toward it, wondering....
Where does it start and where does it end?
As I got closer and closer to home, I felt myself wanting to chase it.
I felt myself even daydreaming of the end, reaching my back yard, like some good omen, that I was seeking out.
As I reached my home, the reality set in that, no, the rainbow was not going to land in my yard.
But it did not matter.
It had left me with a smile on my face, a warmth in my heart to be grateful for this day.
I pulled up in the garage and as I opened the door the children were so happy to see me.
I called for them to come out, into the cool day, to see something that was so wonderful.
They agreed, it was some rainbow.
Tom quietly observed it.
Zander screamed enthusiastically as he stomped through the puddles in our driveway.
And Lulu, who is dealing with some separation anxiety at the moment, simply hung onto my waist happy to have me home.
