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.
