Day 156, June 5

"Try to be the rainbow in somebody else's cloud."--Maya Angelou

Isn't this a lovely image?  To be a rainbow for someone else?  I am often not a rainbow.  In fact, sometimes I  am the dark cloud.  That's not a pleasant admission, but there it is.

I tell myself that I will do better, and maybe I will.  Maybe I can be a rainbow, if not for always, at least for a  minute.  If I give a friend a sincere compliment, am I being a rainbow?  If I send a card, am I being a rainbow?  If I take chocolate to someone, am I being a rainbow?

I hope so.

Joy for today:  being a rainbow, if only for a moment.
