“Without the rain, there would be no rainbow…”
G. K. Chesterton
This week my husband and I are “somewhere over the rainbow” enjoying Fathers’ Day with family in New York City. I’ve chosen to respond to Michelle’s challenge with a favorite double rainbow shot taken several years ago on a vacation in Prince Edward Island. It’s a very fond memory of a beautiful moment shared with good friends.
For reasons I choose not to explain, for me the rainbow has also become a reminder of the power of spiritual connection. As our friends and neighbors in Charleston struggle to understand the tragedy in our backyard, may we find strength in that same spirituality. We can hope that like rain and rainbows, tragedy can beget change – and the lives lost will not have been in vain.
Warmest Fathers’ Day wishes to all of the dads out there. Here’s hoping you too are sharing the day with those you love.
