Standing in the carpark outside Toys R Us after buying a Birthday gift.
*CAL (my 11 year old daughter who has Aspergers) says these exact words.
“It’s crazy how people never look at the sky or stop to see a rainbow. They are too focused on human civilisation to see the beauty created around them.”
She is so very wise for her age.
We stood as a family and watched the rainbow grow to a full arch across the sky. We watched it get brighter and duller and eventually disappear. We stood outside the store for about 15 minutes all of us being still and looking up. Not one family that came out of the store even noticed it was there as they rushed around with trolley loads of shopping.
Sometimes I am so glad not to be part of the mass, it’s nice to be different. I love being one of the sky watchers, cloud collectors and butterfly chasers. Life can really make your heart smile when we open our eyes, open our hearts and see the beauty around us, within us and within those we love.
