A rainbow in my kitchen

About two years ago, my twin brother Johnny gave each of the ladies in our ladies group at church a little crystal angel ornament.

I loved it so much that I didn't want to pack it away with the other christmas ornaments, so I hung it in my kitchen window where I could see it every day!
Well, I would see it every day and always remember Johnny and say a prayer for him but one morning, not too long ago, I noticed Jaylon looking at something on the floor, so I took a closer look, too.

A rainbow on my kitchen floor! What a pleasant and happy thing! And it took little Jaylon for me to notice it once again! And appreciate it.
I guess I had just gotten a little too busy and preoccupied to notice it or appreciate it like I used to. It happens.

Oh, but isn't a rainbow just the most beautiful thing especially when it comes as a gift from your twin brother? :-)

That's so funny that you never noticed it before. It's kind of a double gift, then!

I used to love hanging little "rainbow" makers in my windows. Then Mom came to live with us. I have none left now. AND I've kind of gotten used to not having things on my windows.

It's neat how the things we take for granted are so marvelous in the eyes of a child.

Hi everyone! thanks so much for stopping by! ...seeing things through a child's eye bring a whole new look to our surroundings.
...simply amazing.
