I was digging through a drawer tonight and found an old book full of some great quotes. I loved this little gem.
“Try to be a rainbow in someone's cloud.” ― Maya Angelou
So simple and so profound. I think I was meant to be reminded of this tonight. The past week, I have been dealing with some serious cloud action between my kids. I mean, watch out when their clouds collide! And I'm the first to admit my response was not the most helpful at times! But, we live and learn and we stumble upon old books that remind us of simple ways to make change. It is a new day!
So tonight I'm spreading the love of parent and child. I have been blessed with some seriously awesome families the past month!!!! And in 20-30 years when these kids look back at these moments I hope they feel the love of their family. Because each of them is loved, seen, valued and cherished. It doesn't matter if they are having a cloudy or sunny day (because we all have them), they are loved all the same.
I'm gonna be doing my best to bust out my rainbow next week!
Thanks Maya Angelou for the reminder tonight!
