We had a gully washer here today. Gully washer is what I say when it rains hard. So hard that the guy at the thrift store offered to run my stuff out to my car so I didn't have to carry my purchases and worry about Camden. It doesn't happen very often, but I really appreciate little acts of kindness like that.
Anyway, as we were leaving Target the rain finally stopped and the sun came shining through the clouds and made a huge rainbow. My poor camera phone doesn't do the bright colors of this thing justice, but you get the idea.
Anyway, all my rambling is leading up to a point.
Whenever I see a rainbow I think of my Dad. He and I are very close. It's always been that way.
Almost 6 years ago when I married TG he and I danced to Iz's version of Somewhere Over The Rainbow. I was so excited and happy to be getting married, but I'm a Daddy's girl at heart so of course I cried just a little bit.
And to this day whenever I see a rainbow or hear this song I feel a tug at my heart strings. Sometimes a tear or two wells up because I don't get to see him very often and I miss him a lot.
So, I saw a rainbow today and thought of you Dad and I just had to listen to our song.
