Once upon an October I was having a very difficult time “seeing” Hadley. We were nearing the third anniversary of her passing and my memories of her short life seemed so far away. I wanted to feel her presence, to know that she would never be far, so I asked for a rainbow. The brilliance of rainbows have brought me comfort through the dreary gray of all that is grief. When I see one I think of my little girl, coloring my world, letting me know life is full of moments that will make my eyes dance, even if I am looking at them through tears.
When I asked for rainbows, they came… in photos and songs and books and beautiful pictures crafted by tiny hands. Each one came when I needed it.
You still send them and I hope you always do.
You have never failed.
When my day is particularly gray, I always open my email to find another and I know someone had the memory of my daughter tucked away in their thoughts and carefully sent a piece of it to me…
adding color to my world once again.
So here they are, joined together to make one perfect piece.
Each a symbol of the hope and love and healing I have found through the beautiful community of this place.
I thank you from the depths of my heart and wish you a day filled with brilliant color.
