Chasing Rainbows In The Big Blue Sky

At the end of the rainbow there's happiness, And to find it how often I've tried....I'm always chasing rainbows....

It’s been a rough few days for many I’m sure…what with the endless rains that stirred up old fears and heartaches, mine included. While I may not have braved the same storms many others have, nor have I lost all that I had to it’s fury, it has had me at it’s grip for a long, long time…the rain and I, we’re not friends much, not at all if I had my way, but I’d like to believe (or should I say I’m working on believing) that indeed, every once in a while, we all need a little bit of it.

So tonight before I rest my weary self and try to find the happy vibe I dropped somewhere along today, and in the absence of my own words to say (yes, apparently silence does come to me every once in a while :-) ),  let me share with you an old Irish (I think it’s Irish, that’s what it said in the bookmark I copied it from years, years ago) proverb that I pray will warm your heart, as it has warmed mine so many times in the past.

In every life, however sweet,

God sends a little rain.

And every soul, however good,

Must know a little pain.

Today a cloud may dim your sky —

And dark as though it may seem,.

I’m sure that not too far away,

You’ll see the light gleam.

Nytnyt, dear friends. Don’t let the bed bugs bite.
