If there was no rain...there would be no rainbows.

Rainbows are a wonderful thing! These bight colorful circles in the sky bring so many smiling faces and hope to people everytime they see one. Have you ever seen a rainbow? I usually stop dead in my tracks and look and just take in the beautiful rainbow. But what causes rainbows? You usually see rainbows when it has just finished raining or storming, then the sun comes out. Its like a bright light after the storm. A time to reflect on the bad and hope for the good. This could be related to anything in life and lifes lessons.

Everyone always complains about the rain, even myself. It feels like it has been raining everyday since I moved to Indiana (literally). Really think about the rain though......rain makes things grow. It pretty much makes everything we consume and appreciate. I good rainy day to lay and cuddle on the couch is the same rain that makes the sweet corn we eat, or the cotton on our bedsheets. Most importantly...IF THERE WAS NOT ANY RAIN, THERE WOULD BE NO RAINBOWS.

Here is the definition of rainbow :
A rainbow is an optical and meteorological phenomenon that causes a spectrum of light to appear in the sky when the Sun shines on to droplets of moisture in the Earth's atmosphere. It takes the form of a multicoloured arc. Rainbows caused by sunlight always appear in the section of sky directly opposite the sun.

Think about it...what if there were no rainbows? Would there be no hope? Would there be no rain? When a rainbow appears the sun is actually letting you know that everything is going to be okay. If rain is God crying, then rainbows are God's way of telling you everything is going to be okay.

This is a blog about rainbows. My journey of going throught the rain to get a rainbow.I have been married to the most wonderful man for about a year now, and it has been anything but a year of happines, pain, struggle and getting the courage to keep going. Trying to have a bundle of joy can be a challenge when month after month you don't know what's wrong. The embarrassment of having a miscarriage is weighing on you (the rain)! Every month you have hope and start over again, only to get your heart broken. This is my journey of finding my rainbow after the rain:)
