My lovely friend Maricar always talks about finding rainbows among the everday-ness of life. I admit I’m more of a skeptic…a ‘glass half empty’ kind of gal. But today, as I went about my day and worried about all sorts of everyday things (yes, I know, worrying about them won’t solve the issues–I do it anyway) I found a few rainbows along the way.

Reconnecting with a few old friends, making a new local friend, my blooming roses and lillies, coming home from a work dinner at 9:30 p.m. to find cute notes from the kids waiting for me on my desk….these seemingly little things really are the big things when you think about it. So many of these little things brought me big smiles today, and for that I am grateful.
