Thankful Thursday ~ Rainbows and Clouds

Every Thursday I share something I'm thankful for.  It's so easy to focus on the negative and it's sometimes hard to find the positive, but I believe there is always something to be thankful for!

After a stormy afternoon, I noticed that when I looked out the back door, the sky was dark, but out the front door was blue sky with clouds.  When I walked out back I was pleasantly surprised to see a rainbow.  An arc of brilliant color against a dark gray sky.

Don't you just love a rainbow?  I will never ever get too old or too tired of looking at them.  A rainbow just makes me happy!

The view when I walked out the front door was different.  I was greeted with some blue sky and sunshine and some pretty amazing clouds.  I love how the sunlight outlines, shines through and highlights the white and gray fluffiness!

I'm thankful every day for the beauty that surrounds me and that I am able to see it.

Other things I'm thankful for this week
     Time spent with my daughter the last few weeks
     Annie dog didn't make us chase her when she bolted out the door.  
     Hugs from my granddaughter when I didn't ask for one
     The smell and feel of clean sheets
     Blogs that make me laugh
     Blogs that make me cry

What are you thankful for today???
