Thankful-Day 13

Throughout my day I was making note of all the little gifts that came my way. There was the big smile from a former co-worker when I walked in to the school where I will start teaching 2nd grade in December that melted my anxiety away. Then the incredibly helpful clerk in personnel who walked me through the paperwork so I can start that job. Can't help but be grateful for my daughter's improving health, and her sister's remarkable patience.

But, the rainbow trumps them all.

Driving home from the grocery store, I was delighted with that particularly gorgeous light in the sky when the weather is shifting from rain to sun right at dusk. There was an orange glow in one direction, ominous gray in the other, and a Hollywood cloud-spekled blue in another. I did a 3-point turn to back into my driveway and ended up facing a most beautiful rainbow. I wish my phone camera did it justice.

I am thankful for the colors of our world.

  1. It's those small things that make life worth living - a smile, a beautiful rainbow, etc. We have so much to be thankful for. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Little moments certainly do add up as our day unfolds. Rainbows are a spectacular sight. It seems like they are a little gift. How can anyone feel anything but good when looking at a rainbow? Glad you got one yesterday.
