Perspective

While waiting for a rather late bus to take me home yesterday afternoon, the sunshine I had been basking in abruptly disappeared behind some clouds and rain began to fall. I was annoyed; I just wanted to get home. My phone was dead, I was tired and cranky – and now I was going to get soaked? Phooey! But then I realized that the rain was warm, and the air a soothing breeze, so I decided to let myself get wet without a care. Moments later the rain stopped as fast as it begun and the sunshine returned – and along with it, a beautiful, perfect rainbow materialized right in front of me that I could see end to end. It felt like it was just for me, and made me happy as can be. Just a typical day. Life’s a trip, folks!
