Breath Taking

This morning during the hustle and bustle of getting kids out the door, I wasn't in a very good mood. The two little girls wanted cold lunch at the last minute and the two older girls were running late as well. After everyone was gone, I went to put something in the laundry room and noticed Lindsay had forgotten her cross country uniform and she has a meet this afternoon. I hurried to call her to see if she was still at the bus stop and asked her why she didn't take her uniform. She just said she forgot it. I asked if she thought I could quickly drive to the bus stop and beat the bus there. Needless to say, I was not happy with her, as I was still scrambling to get Baylie ready for pre-school. After rushing to the bus stop, luckily she had remembered her under armour and it was just the uniform she forgot, I was turning the corner to head back home and looked up and noticed a totally beautiful rainbow. It was so vibrant in color that it literally took my breath away. I have not seen this vivid a rainbow in quite some time! I ran into the house and quickly grabbed the camera, and went onto the back porch to snap this shot. I then ran back in to get my phone to take another picture to text Chris and the girls and it was gone. I hope the girls noticed it's beauty while waiting for the bus. This event changed my mood drastically because I realized I would have missed one of Heavenly Father's beautiful rainbows had it not been for Lindsay who forgot her uniform! Thanks Lindsay!


  1. Beautiful! I love it! We had a HUGE storm here all day yesterday, but I never saw a rainbow. Hope you have a good day. :)

  2. You always seem to give me a good laugh. You brought light to your not so fun uniform situation this morning. I wish I could have seen the rainbow.

  3. It looks awesome! I am sure it was even more beautiful in person!
