Then it reminded me of the day I drove through a rainbow...I did, I really did...it was a long time ago, when I was a young adult, and still working at putting my life together. I can't remember what the specific circumstances in my life were, but I was driving along the highway, thinking about my life. It had been raining, and in south Florida there are lots of rainbows. As I drove, I noticed that up ahead, the color of the air just above the road looked odd...kind of an orangey/yellowy/goldy look to it. Then I noticed the color (still orangey/yellowy/goldy) seemed to fill all the space around me. That's when I knew I was driving through a rainbow! I was thrilled! I was awestruck! I felt like I was in my pot of gold! An incredible feeling of satisfaction came over me, and all I could think was WOW, I'm 'the girl in the rainbow'. It was another one of those serendipitous moments for me, when I knew I was exactly where I was supposed to be in my life.
I haven't thought about being 'the girl in the rainbow' for years. Today's rainbow centered me in the same way I felt so long ago. Oh, don't worry, these are not the only 2 serendipitous moments of my life, nor are they the only 2 times I have ever felt that knowing. It's so nice to have these little moments now and then! Wouldn't you agree?
I will close with this American Indian Cherokee Blessing for you...
"May the warm winds of heaven blow
softly upon your house.
May the Great Spirit bless all who enter there.
May your mocassins make happy tracks in many snows,
and may the rainbow always touch your shoulder."
