The Rainbows In Life

These days it's easy to get caught up in the "rain and clouds" of life.  Every day we each try to fit 40 hours worth of stuff into our 24 hour day.  Needless to say, the leftover 16 hours just get tacked onto tomorrow.....and so on......and so forth......  I don't know about you, but this easily comprises 90% of the stress in my life!  But one thing I've noticed is that if you take time in life to really see what makes up your world----you'll always find a rainbow behind those clouds.  Many times these rainbows are cute phrases uttered from the mouth of a three year old child or the thoughtfulness of a friend that knows you too well.  Other times these rainbows show themselves as a delicious piping hot bowl of chili on a cool autumn (yes I said autum people!) day.  One of my rainbows in life is a wonderful friend/mother/wife/scrapbooker/general organizer of life that I don't get to see nearly as often as I'd like.  This woman (you know who you are) seems to have everything all figured out and has a solid grip on juggling all of life's responsibilities.  But every once in a while she shares with me that it's not ever as easy as it looks.  Though I feel that she just says this to make me feel better----it's nice hearing that it's not always sunshine!  So I created this card to send to a "rainbow" in my life.

We may not get to see rainbows very often in life, but I sure do appreciate its beauty when I do see one!
