Rainbows In A Storm

HEALTH IS A CORNERSTONE of contentment that we take for granted until it wanes on our journey through life. When pieces of us seem broken and simple tasks are a chore it is not easy to keep up spirits and it is natural to be sad, angry and fearful. Yet it is when we feel the most defeated that trust in bright outcomes and even miracles can occur.

Through my blogging friend Carol’s site, I became aware of a special woman struggling with cancer and a concept called Leaves For Leontien. This creative way of sending a goodwill message with a photograph inspired me to think about Leontien and her blog as well as the friends and loved ones who are near and also yearn for their health to be restored.

In some circles the umbrella represents protection and life. The umbrella pictured with fallen leaves is my wish and a prayer that those in need find refuge and like rainbows in a storm an arch of healing and care.

  7. Your umbrella looks like a benevolent hand to salvage every beings from sadness and difficulties. It is so true but sad we take it for granted until we lose it.
