Never have I seen one like this . . .

The other day, the bottom fell out of it. We even got some hail. And as soon as it blew in, it blew out! The sun was so bright on the front of our house, it was blinding. But you could still see the tail end of the storm as it was leaving at the back of our house. The first thing I thought of was a rainbow. I told the kids to look out back, surely it would appear soon.

And did it ever!


And the longer we stared at it, the brighter it got. I had never seen one so bright - EVER! And then on closer inspection, I realized that we could see the FULL rainbow!


At the most, I've seen about 3 quarters of a rainbow - BUT this one, was basically the whole thing! The only part we didn't see is the very end. And that was only because the trees were in the way. In the past, rainbows just seem to fade into the sky. Not this one. It was as bright and shaped just like the ones I drew as a little girl.

And it was soooo close to our house! I've never seen one this close up either. The end, was in the field behind our house!


It was literally behind that row of tree and brush.


What a wonderful reminder.

Gorgeous! I love it when I'm having a not-so-great day and then look up in the sky and see a beautiful reminder like this!

Several years ago, I was driving to my job in Atlanta, and I literally drove THROUGH the end of a rainbow. I was a little disappointed that I didn't see the pot of gold though...lol!
