My dear sweet cousin sent me a series of photos
of my precious mom that I had never seen before...
family slides, and this striking image
was among them.
She said that her dad ( my uncle and my mom's brother )
had labeled this particular shot
"Jo Anne Sees a Rainbow."
I smile as I reflect on the fact that she has now
actually seen, face to face,
the One who creates rainbows.
Happy Mother's Day, Mama.
Not a day goes by that I don't miss you,
and every time I see a rainbow now,
I will smile and think of you.
