The Gift

So I get off work at 6:00 tonight. I'm in my car driving home. I'm tired and I just want to get home and curl up all cosy for the rest of the evening. I turn onto I-94 merging onto the highway....I couldn't believe my eyes!! Right in front of me was the most magnificent, beautiful, vibrant rainbow I have ever seen. I've seen a lot of rainbows in my life but never ever anything like this one. It was like I was right under it, in all it's glory!! My description cannot even begin to do it justice. It was a complete rainbow too.
Being a fall rainbow it was over the top of all the fall colored trees. Absolutely amazing. Honestly, cars and trucks were pulling over on the side of the highway just to stare at it.
I was all alone but I was screaming with excitement. In the worst way I wanted to take a picture of it!! But of course I didn't have a camera. I got the above picture off the Internet. I don't carry my good camera around with me because it is just too big. It wasn't two days ago that I told Craig that I wanted a pocket camera to carry in my purse for just these occasions. Now I am determined more than ever to get a pocket camera. Soon....
The rainbow didn't last very long. I bet it was gone within 2 minutes. I am so thankful that I was there at the right time. It really was a gift.
