It’s been 2 years today since Mom passed away. During those dark days from December 10-19, 2011 during which Mom spent in the ICU, it rained. A lot. But there were also many rainbows.
During that time, whenever I saw a rainbow, I viewed it as God’s reminder that He is still in control and He will take care of my Mom — in this life and in the next.
Today, 2 years later on the anniversary of her passing, I spotted a full rainbow and was assured that Mom is indeed doing just fine in her heavenly home, smiling down on us.
Two years later, it’s still hard. I still miss her. There isn’t a day that passes that I don’t wish I could have another opportunity to see her. Hug her. Tell her that I love her so very much.
When I see a rainbow, I like to believe it’s her saying, “I love you, too.”
