Sometimes you take a different route, because it’s going to rain and you do not not want to die today from the lighting strikes that might just happen. You almost turn around and go back home, but you go to the school instead and begin to trudge around the grounds. Trudge. What a great word. It sounds like it means. An onomatopoeia, if you will. You continue to trudge until your feet finally get sick of you dragging them and they pick up speed for you. You walk a little lighter with each step. Next thing you know you are kind of liking it. You feel better moving. Then you decided to listen to Oprah, because that’s what you do on long walks. Oprah.. my friend that makes the miles breeze by.
In this particular podcast episode, she is talking about crying uncontrollably & feeling sorry for herself. She said that Maya Angelou was consoling her on the phone and she said to her firmly... “Stop it.. stop it right now and say Thank You”. “You don’t understand”..said Oprah. ‘What am I saying Thank You for?” Maya A said, “You are saying Thank You, because Your Faith is so strong ...you will get through it and even in the eye of the storm, God has put a rainbow in the clouds.”
At that very moment, listening to the wisdom & walking, I looked up from my feet and saw a rainbow over the schoolyard. No lightening, no thunder.. a few dark clouds, light rain and a gorgeous rainbow. Then TWO rainbows. It made me shout out loud.... THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! I threw my hands in up in the air, danced around in the rain a little and laughed-cried. Sometimes you scare the people in the car that pulled over to show their kids the double rainbow too, but you just keep dancing anyway.
Sometimes things align at the Divine and Perfect time.
