This morning I was up at 5:30 with my three year old. She just wasn’t tired anymore. And, I don’t like mornings. So, by 7:30am, after driving my 12 year old to school, my 14 year old to seminary and getting my two grade schoolers off to the bus, I was already feeling kinda tired. I walked out back to do a little yard pickup and wow! Up in the sky was this….
A big beautiful double rainbow! In the morning sky! (Of course, the picture does not do it justice.) I don’t remember seeing an early morning rainbow before. And I could see so much of it too. Suddenly, I was thrilled with my three year old for waking me up early. If she hadn’t, I wouldn’t have been up and awake enough to be outside seeing this. Isn’t it funny how something that only lasted a few minutes could change the outlook of my entire day? I definitely need to find more joy in how beautiful the world is in the morning. It might help me the next time I’m having a hard time dragging myself out of bed.
