Soulful Sunday: A Whole Bunch of Blessings

~My Own Personal Rainbow, Shared with You!~

I was thinking about blessings yesterday. About how blessed I am to be able to do the things I do, enjoy the things I enjoy, and meet the people I meet. It then started to rain. Hard. Very hard. Each drop sounded like a rock hitting the ground, windows, chimney and I had to rush to close the windows to avoid getting rain in my house. I closed the window and as I turned to sit back down, I was blinded by sunlight. Bright, beautiful sunlight in the middle of a very heavy rainstorm.

I turned to look out my back door and there it was: a rainbow about 30 feet wide and 20 feet tall in my backyard! Talk about blessings! I took about 10 photos, but trying not to get my camera wet in the rain is very difficult and this was the only one that turned out.
No, I did not look for gold - the rainbow ended on a big rock, and I did not fancy straining my back trying to pull bedrock out of the ground :-)

All this was to say how blessed I am, how blessed you are. Sometimes it is the smallest thing - a rainbow, a smile, a positive word, a wagging tail. We are all so blessed, and very few places is this more obvious than in the Blogosphere.

**I must take a moment here to apologize for being so behind on my blog-visiting. I have been busy and ill and sometimes that cuts into my blog visiting time. Rest assured, I love you all and will get back into my routine as soon as possible :-)**

I am so blessed to have all of you visiting and commenting. Even if I don't always respond, I read every comment and cherish it. I must say Thank You! to everyone who does. I really appreciate it, you make me feel so blessed to have so many blogging friends!

Take a moment today and think about how blessed you are. Do you have a spouse/partner/child who loves you? A dog/cat/hamster who loves you? Friends who say positive things? A roof over your head? A hobby to keep you entertained on rainy days?

You are very blessed indeed and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for blessing me today!

  6. What a wonderful post! I love rainbows. Don't think we've ever had one in our yard, but we have had them land on the neighbors yard a time or two.
    Thanks so much for reminding us how blessed we are. Sometimes life gets so busy that we forget to reflect on what/who we have.
    Hope you have a wonderful week, and are feeling well.
