since my last post my partner and I have been sight seeing around where we live, we set off to visit the Lady Bower dam where the bouncing bomb was tested before its use in the second world war but due to a little memory misdirection, we missed it by a few miles and wound up in Grindleford, a few miles shy of Sheffield.
We had a lovely walk through the fields, alongside the river then stopped for a snack. We then continued for a while until the weather looked like it might take a turn for the worst and we turned around and headed back towards where we’d parked the car.
The rain that arrived as we were about a third of the way back started off as a drizzle increasing in intensity until we were quite wet before we reached the safe haven of the car. Almost as if God was laughing at us the rain stopped and the sun came out as we reached the car but then as we were on the way home he rewarded us with the most wonderous rainbow I have ever seen.
Looking at the colours of the rainbow as it arced over our path from one field to the next I was filled with the feeling of wonder that I felt when I was young and could be amazed by such simple things. Stopping occasionally en route we took photos of the phenomenon and both of us were like young kids as we viewed it laughing at the beauty of it and absolute wonder we both felt at viewing it.
Life is being able to see the beauty around us and being able to appreciate it and I hope I never lose the childlike wonder I felt today when I saw the rainbow.
See you soon and look out for rainbows,
