Moment not to be forgotten-The Rainbow

Yesterday when I woke up to get ready to go to Wanda's for breakfast, I opened the front curtains of Somewhere so I could survey the most assuredly storm damage from during the night to see the darkest, melodramatic sky which was sure to produce a tornado or at least hail.  But no, there in front of me was the most colorful rainbow I have seen in a long time.  It was producing the most pronounced 7 colors of the rainbow; red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet on the blackness of the sky.  How do I readily know these colors you may be asking?  Because I was a Rainbow Girl when I was a kid.

Ah, but I digress.  What's the significance of the Rainbow?  You regular readers know this answer but to those of you who are new readers or if you've just forgotten, here goes.  When my Mama died, there was the most gorgeous rainbow that appeared, 7/30/02.  I read into that she was telling us she had made it to heaven and it was everything she knew it would be and that she would be waiting for us and watching over us.

Now, everytime I see a rainbow, I know Mama is with me and taking care of me like she always did.  Yesterday morning was the first official day of my new life adventure of fulltime RVing I knew she was going to be with me.  Before I headed out, I said a prayer to ask God to watch over me as I headed.

I am truly Blessed.

Carolyn, I didn't know you had been a Rainbow Girl!!! Kayla is a Rainbow Girl and belongs to the Hendersonville Assebly. Last year she had a teacher who asked the class to name the colors of the rainbow and she was the only one who could name them. Stay safe!! Barbara
