Christmas and Double Rainbows

10:39 pm 6/25/17

Six months from today is Christmas Day. I have a feeling that our Christmas will be different this year than in years past. I’m also pretty sure I’m going to remember back to this day, the 6-month marker to Christmas, on all the future Christmas Days to come.

Dennis and I took Mom into the ER this morning. It was a hard decision to make, because she really didn’t want to go. I felt that she needed more care than I could give, so we went. Turned out it was the right call.

It was about 12 hours from the time the ambulance picked her up until the time we finally arrived back home again with Charlie, Mom’s dog, in tow.

This is Charlie. He’s been pretty chill with the whole thing. He likes Sammy and they play outside together.  He’s never seen cats before, though, so he not quite sure what to think about them.


On the way home from our incredibly crappy, emotional day, there was a gorgeous double rainbow. My pictures don’t do it justice.


You can just see the hint of the second rainbow in this shot. It’s about an inch to the right of the main one. The second rainbow was actually a lot brighter than it appears here.


This was a  massive rainbow. I could see from one side of it to the other. It was pretty amazing.  Maybe it was a sign for me to be at peace. Or maybe it was just a pretty rainbow.

Whichever it was, I liked it. It made me happy and that was no easy feat today.
