I woke this morning
and looked out of the side window and saw
the end of this lovely rainbow
and it's shaddow.
Being now a blogger
I rushed for my camera and looked out of the
back bedroom window
Now totally captivated,
I started leaning out of the windows...
to get a good picture of the whole rainbow
I was so pleased because, to me, rainbows speak of hope and a promise.
After the flood God promised Noah.......
I have spent these last 4 years hoping that each operation would see me more mobile and able to do, again, the things I so enjoy!
Yesterday I went to Cardiff (about 100 miles away) to see the consultant neurologist.
He seems, after my latest MRI scan last week,to be about to get on with the job and is now supposed to be doing a diagnostic under CT scan next week.
As he left he put his hand on my shoulder
"I promise you I will arrange it for next week and phone you before the end of this one."
So the rainbow seemed to me to be affirming that something will happen.....we'll see!
On Tuesday I decided to go to some local woods to see if the bluebells were out as I had been told!
As I crossed a bridge I saw
Some ducks who seemed to playing on a rock.
One took a turn and then slid off and another climbed on
It was such fun watching them and made me think...
how often do we miss a fun moment because we don't spend a moment to stop and look!
A couple of weeks ago I had the chance to spend a short while with one of my grandsons
We got out of the car and walked onto the shingle beach. I was looking ahead to the sea
but he stopped,
looked down and said
"Look at all these dead crabs"
The part of the beach that had looked as if it had a lot of bigger stones
actually was covered in dead crabs!
There were all sorts...hermit crabs as well
We wondered if someone had been crabbing and not put them back in the water
but they were spread over quite an area!
We spent the rest of the time finding and admiring other shells
and things that had been washed up.
I sometimes think that
there is a lesson to be learnt in the way
that a young child
focusses all their attention on the matter in hand
instead of looking at everything all around
and trying to take in everything.....
