Today when I saw a rainbow, I thought about my mother. I was with my mother when I saw my very first rainbow. I was about four years old. We hurried out the front door to look at it. It made a big beautiful arch over our house. I will never forget the vivid colors: pink, yellow, green, and blue. Was it because the world was still so new to me?
Today, after all the contemptuous weather―rain, hail, wind— I saw a double rainbow. It came with half the sky filled with sunshine. I’m glad my husband was home, so I could share it with him.
I know there’s a logical explanation. Sunshine reflecting off the moisture on the earth. But I like to think there’s some magic involved!
Sometimes it’s true, the best things in life are free!
