Wordless Wednesday – May 13

A few words please? 

Last night before sunset it was raining hard, but then bright sunshine broke through!

I wish it had dawned on me more quickly that the rain was slowing down.  I dashed out side in my bare feet into the centre of the lawn.

I was in time to catch a glimpse of the rainbow which I was confident I would find.

The rainbow was beautiful, bright, vibrant, and rich. However, I had ran out unprepared and was caught without a camera. When I returned, albeit quickly, the colours were washed out, pale in comparison to 4 minutes before.

I learned a lesson:

When it rains, be prepared for a rainbow because the sun is still up there.

    So pretty ❤
    I've learned that lesson this year too. Life moves fast! Sometimes I move fast with it, sometimes not. But its all ok anyway.

    I know it’s been a long time since we actually talked but I follow you on FB and welcome your posts. Life is not always fair but it’s the ‘hand’ that we’re dealt and there are limited options – complain or play the hand that fate dealt you. Anyways, this is one of my favorite songs and if you want to hear a different version, click on the following link… it’s beautiful.

      I am so glad to hear from you Nick. I have seen this version before and I have kept it in my folders to watch over again. It’s a cool version absolutely. Life isn’t what we order, there is no menu for life.
      “Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”-Lao Tzu
      My best wishes!

    I did something similar with the sunset tonight. It was a rainy evening and by the time I noticed the hints of pink in the sky… well, too late! I climbed the stairs but it had gone. 🙂 🙂
