Rainbows and rain storms

Sometimes things felt really jumbled and black inside and it was hard to figure out which way to go.

She tried to make sense of it all and find her way forward, tried to make brave choices and not take the safe path. But sometimes it was SO hard and she didn't know if she could do it.

One day she was driving and told the universe that she REALLY needed a rainbow right now. They had always been signs made just for her and when she saw them she felt encouraged and lifted, a secret message from God. In all the years of living in this city she had never seen a rainbow so she knew it was a lot to ask but the rain had just lifted and the sky had that purple glow and if ever there was a rainbow needed, or possible, it was now. She drove some more and no rainbow. In a huff she got to the grocery store and stomped around the peas and grapes, storming inside. Fine. No sign. Nothing positive at all. Maybe she should buy some chocolate. 

And then she walked out the door and there right in front of her it was, stretched right across the sky. A beautiful rainbow.

All the questions were not answered and she still had to be brave and keep her chin up and facing forward, but that rainbow made all the difference. It made her feel that everything was going to be OK.
And suddenly the jumbled black feeling inside went quiet and turned all peaceful and yellow. The rain was gone and she went walking in a rainy forest, able to see the light sparkling on the wet leaves again.

There is much to tell but today i need to go off on a little adventure, all on my own with my suitcase packed. It is hard to go but there are things to be done and I'll be writing again soon soon with more stories to tell. New buds are blossoming and the feeling inside is a little on the side of pink.

Wishing you a weekend filled with yellows and bright rainbow colors.
