When we came out of the store it was raining and there was no sun at all, but there above us in the sky was a bright rainbow. It gave me the feeling that God was telling me that everything was going to be okay. The way that he did for Noah when he put the rainbow in the sky after the great flood. I was a little comforted. At 5:30 in the morning my mom came in my room and woke me up to tell me that my Grandma had passed away. Then she had to get ready to leave for her flight. My dad and my older sister would fly out for the funeral the next day. I cried a lot after I got the news but I kept the thought of the rainbow in my mind.
From that moment on, whenever I look up in the sky and see a rainbow, I know it is my grandma saying hi from heaven. And that makes me smile. The pic above is one I took of one such rainbow. To me it is a symbol of hope and comfort that my grandma is always watching over me. :)
