As we were all digging our way out of yet another winter storm, the snow weighing heavily on our shovels and hearts…a sign that perhaps there is a light at the end of this dismal tunnel. Friday morning, about 8:30am, as I was driving my two youngsters home after picking up our drive-thru breakfast, I saw before me a vision. A beautful rainbow that dimly hovered above the frosty horizon. I’d never seen a rainbow in winter..and felt compelled to mark the moment with a photo. So I pulled over the car (safety first!) and snapped away. (see photo above).
While my kids and I had fun wondering if the rainbow ended at our house…I got the feeling that colorful anomaly was there for a reason. To remind us that even in our darkest (and coldest) times…there are moments of brightness and beauty…and when it comes to winter, this too shall pass.
