i love those first moments when you discover there is a rainbow in the sky. perfectly arched overhead. and you just stand there, transfixed by it's beauty and it's mystery. the fun part comes in trying to find all of it, but often times, part of it is hidden. maybe behind a big old barn, or a bill board. i think of this sometimes with my children. here i have before me these two beautiful rainbows. full of utter delight and mysterious possibility. sometimes, the beauty of who they are can get obstructed- maybe behind a cranky disposition, or a snide remark. but it is so important for me to remember, that they are still rainbows- full of beauty and light. and if i just walk around that 'big old barn' of a hard moment, i can see it all there- all of the glory that is wrapped up in their little selves.
