A Simple Rainbow

You know those days that you just sit back and think "WOW I am so lucky"! Today was one of those days! It is my beautiful best friends birthday and we spent the day with her, her husband, her beautiful new baby and a few close friends, in their amazingly perfect new home! Their home is paradise! Away from the hustle and bustle. Pure serenity! There was no fuss, there was no pressure, just friends hanging out and talking. As the minutes turned into hours and the laughs and conversations flew through the air, a beautiful black storm rolled in from over the hills. What a sight. There is nothing I love more than an amazing storm having a party in the sky! God putting on a show! The greys, the deep blues and the blacks, folding, curling and cascading into each other to form a masterpiece that always, always takes my breath away!

And just when you think it is over and God has moved onto the next show, this appears...


This moment took my breath away. It was right then, at that very moment, surrounded by my bestest friends and husband that I smiled.  I was so happy. I was so lucky.

It was nothing big, it was nothing spectacular. Just a small simple thing that absolutely filled my heart with so much joy and happiness. We must always remember this glimpse of a rainbow! No matter what we are going through, no matter how hard life seems to be, always and I mean ALWAYS remember that there is a beautiful shining rainbow in every situation. You just have to look beyond the dark grey sky to find it.
