Mid-day yesterday the sky was blue and beautiful. Then about 3PM clouds rolled in from the East and a frog-straglin' rainstorm insued giving us a little over half an inch of rain!
As the storm came close to the end, the sun came out............good grief, I knew there was a rainbow somewhere. Looking out windows to the North, I spotted it. Ran downstairs to get my camera and then ran up four flights of stairs to the roof to get this photo!
Who says I don't get enough exercise? Two flights down, four flights up........FAST!
I was rewarded, as it continued to rain, with this photo.
It is always a gift to see a rainbow. My daughter said many, many years ago when her grandmother died, "Mom, if you ever see a rainbow, it means someone you love on the other side is here". I've never forgotten that and each time I see one, I think of those people who I love and miss.
After seeing the rainbow, I thought of a dear friend here in San Miguel whose husband died last year.
I immediately called her and told her to rush and look for the rainbow. She saw it out her kitchen window where she was standing. Billie is so much better of a photographer then I am. I so hope she got a photo of it and thought of Ned.
Yes, gifts don't have to be something you buy - they can be a gift from the Universe which to me is much more of a treasure!
