All this rain got me thinking about the last time I saw a rainbow. It was a double rainbow. We saw it up in Northwest Arkansas in August. We were on the way to the airport to pick up our daughter, returning home from L.A..
When I was a kid, running outside to look for a rainbow was the first thing my brother and I would do when it stopped raining. It was almost like a contest to see which one of us could spot it first. Did you do that?
I don't go out and look for them anymore--but I should! They are such a beautiful sight and I'm thinking about how many of them I've missed through the years. They are truly a special, simple pleasure that I've been ignoring!
“May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.”
