Sometimes it’s not what’s over it, but the rainbow itself

As we were all digging our way out of yet another winter storm, the snow weighing heavily on our shovels and hearts

 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.
