No rain, no rainbows

No rain
No rainbow....

It is simple but it is true.

It is raining today.
The kids are stuck inside.

But, I just realized that for the first time in days
they are down playing together - peacefully.

This won't last long - but neither do rainbows.

But much like rainbows this signifies hope.

The lull before the storm per say? Thanks for coming by and answering my question. I am going to try to do both, that way I wont miss any one.

When my children are quiet I know they are up to something. The question is, do I go check and disturb the peace or so I worry about the consequences later?

I always thought something was wrong when the kids were quiet and I was usually right...they were getting into trouble! Your simile is beautiful with rainbows and hope.

Oh this is beautiful! I enjoyed it very much. Now, whenever my boys are playing peacefully together I'll thank God for the rainbow!
