A Rainbow of a day

You know there are just some really special bloggers out there that do very kind things. Micki over at Irish Muses was given two much deserved Friendship Awards. And in turn she was to pass friendship love on to other bloggers. She so very kindly included me!

Sometimes one of the hardest things to do in life is to make choices. How do you pick from such an array of generous folks out there? So many of you have brought sunshine into my little corner of the world. And for some reason I felt that the beauty of the rainbow would help me to express my thoughts.

A rainbow is an optical and meteorological phenomenon that causes a spectrum of light to appear in the sky when the sun shines onto droplets of moisture in the earth’s atmosphere. When I think of a rainbow, I think of the cool rain that comes before the waves of color upon the sky. The rain that has refreshed the earth and brings life with every drop. When the rain stops, many times the rainbow appears. The colors are sometimes clear and sharp, and other times they are muted, almost hard to see. But one thing is for sure, the rainbow is a sign of a promise. And with that promise comes encouragement. These lovely ladies encourage me every day. Sometimes it is bright and cheery, other times it may be a quiet friendly hello.

I know that sometimes crafty creative bloggers do not accept awards. If that is so, I deem them with an Honorary Friendship Award!

Rainbows can be caused by many forms of water, including rain, mist, spray, and dew. But after the rainbow, comes the sunshine. Thank you ladies for bringing refreshing sunshine into my world :-) Go forth and share the Friendship love!
