What Comforts You?

This world is full of wonder. Day to day our five senses are engaged in all of it, from the feel of  a baby's skin, to the fragrance of a lilac, to the music of a lark, to the taste of the season's first sweet strawberry, to the awesome spectacle of a thunderstorm. 

Sadly too, though, we must take the bad with the good and in the shadow of a rainbow we often find despair and trouble.  Yet, even when things are difficult there are signs of hope around us. Sometimes we don't even have to look too hard to find them.

Several years ago, a dear friend of mine lost a child. One evening, in the deepest part of her grief, in the still quiet of her bedroom, she spoke to her daughter, asking her why she didn't let her know she was okay.  Seconds later a brilliant shooting star streaked across the sky and for  a brief moment my friend could smile again.

I had my moment last night. For weeks now I've been travelling to the hospital to visit my ailing, aged mother.  As anyone who's ever been in the same position knows, seeing a loved one suffer and not knowing the outcome is emotionally draining.   Then, returning home exhausted in the twilight hours of yesterday, to make matters worse, I drove into a rainstorm. The sky was darkly turbulent, clouds roiled and fat raindrops fell. 

Until I glanced to my right and noticed one small opening that revealed only the crimson orange of the setting sun.  And, for the first time in a long time I felt some comfort.

While rainbows are often the sign of hope for many, my inspiration has always come from beautiful sunsets. With these wonderful photos we can see them any time of day:
