When Rainbows Come

It's been an eventful summer.
For all of us.

I've visited your blogs and
tasted cups of love
and the touch of your hearts.
I'm glad to walk with you
as we travel together. 

that with the many storms facing us,
we are none of us alone. 

that sometimes
after a storm
comes the most beautiful rainbow.

even more than one.

There may or may not be pots of gold,
but the rainbows are gratifying enough.
And riding those rainbows
have brought incredible wild joy

Weathering the storms.

Remembering that life is beautiful.
Family and friends only a heartbeat away,
Connections and re-connections,
remembering how loved we are.
Feeling boundless gratitude and...
