My Rainbow

Today’s slice is brought to you by the letter R and the number 7.

For the past 7 days, I have been slicing pieces of my rainbow. The reds, oranges, yellows, greens, blues, indigos, and violets of my life. Parts of the story that make up where I have been and give a glimpse as to where I am going.

Violently Violet
Innocently Indigo
Bubbling Blue
Gloriously Green
Youngster Yellow
Offensively Orange
Resplendently Red

My rainbow is upside-down. I know it and I embrace it. I embrace the laughter. I embrace the tears. I embrace the struggles. I embrace the achievements. I embrace my upside-down rainbow because it smiles at me and welcomes me home.

The colors of my rainbow are uniquely mine.  Mine to cherish, mine to love, mine to remember. These colors are with me everywhere I go, a testament to the life I have led, a badge of honor over what I have accomplished, a belt of achievement to be worn with pride. And at the end of the day, when the kids are tucked in, and the house is quiet, it is these colors that I find comfort in.

Today’s slice is brought to you by the letter R and the number 7.

  1. I love the upside down rainbow genius you did here! It’s perfection Sue. For real. I didn’t notice that you were doing a backwards rainbow- I love this even more now that I know.
