Well, hello there!

I didn't really tell anyone, but I was dreading my first Tuesday drive to tutoring.  It was the drive where I always called my Nana.  We chatted.  She told stories.  I told her things about the Crazies to make her laugh.  We connected.

Making that drive yesterday really had me nervous.  Would I cry the whole way there?  Would I call someone else?  Would that other person even pick up?  She always picked up.

So, I got my dinner at Pan.era and made my way to the car.  I turned on this radio program I like b/c of their crude humor and horrific language...figuring it would at least distract me and not remind me of my Nana at all.  

As I turned the corner, the sun was in my eyes, so I brought my visor down.  All of the sudden, from the corner of my eye, appeared a rainbow.  It was small...not one of those "I'm going to reach from coast-to-coast" rainbows, but just a little one.

It was just saying, "well, hello there" as she often did.

It followed me all the way to the library.

It made me smile rather than cry.

When I got to the library, I got out of the car ready to take a picture as we so often are in this technology crazed world of having to capture every minute in an Instag.ram.  I looked up and it was gone.  She'd appeared long enough to get me to the library and then gone on her way...just as she used to after our chats.
