The Rainbow's End




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.

absolutey lovely photo. and i look at her waist and think how tiny she was. it could have been a photograph of my own mother, as I know them to be about the same age.
yes, she sees the rainbows from another angle now. and you will smile with the rainbows with new memory.
in fondest. Tilda

What a precious photo! How thoughtful of your cousin to send these photos of your lovely mom.

Today was a bit sad for us, especially dad. We visited her grave today, and those of my ancestors too.

Oh-Anne-What a beautiful, precious photo of your Mom...gazing up into the Heavens to see the rainbow. We never really know how close we are to seeing what lies on the other side, do we? Blessings- xo Diana

Oh, Anne. What an absolutely beautiful photo of your mom. You just can't get more perfect than that. My mom always loved the rain. The day we laid her to rest, It began to rain on us. We all smiled. Your photo reminded me of that heartwarming moment.

Anne, that is lovely. I'm so sorry that you miss your momma today. Thinking of you.

Such a lovely photo for your cousin to send on this of all days...when you need it the most.
She's your pot of gold at rainbow's end. God's blessing and reminder of what's waiting beyond the storms.

Not going to lie, my first thought too was, "Wholly cow, how small is her waist?" Do they even make waists that small anymore, hahahaha. Great picture of your mom and so awesome to have the rainbow in there. She could have been sliding down one today with my mom just for fun:)

Anne, I know you have so many fond memories of your mom and too I have one of you and her. The time you two came shopping at Accumulations. So enjoyed visiting with her and you know what was the best part is that she bragged about you the whole time!
