Somewhere Over The Rainbow


While me and hubby were still busy with our own stuffs, suddenly Angel calling to me with her soft voice “Mommy ~~, Mommy~~, See ~~ See~~!! ” while gazing upon the sky and I thought she spotted another aeroplane again. So feeling a little disturbed with what I am doing, but still .... I went over to her while stroking her soft hair and look up ….. oh my! it’s a very pretty rainbow after the rain. This is also the first time she saw a rainbow coz normally she didn't have the chance to really see the rainbow (she would now pronounce it was 'Meh-Mow' instead of rainbow LoL) and now that she spotted her first rainbow, so I took out her little book with the rainbow pictures in it and starts showing her how pretty the real one is compare to the one in the book. Yes .... it definitely looks different .......

And when I look closer, it’s not only 1 rainbow but 2 rainbows actually …. It’s so breathe taking!! It makes me think that sometimes we who living in the city are really too occupied with our daily busy life routine and the fast pace of things around us (work, chores, errands, etc). It seems that the older we gets, the more that we are holding our heads down - busy (while kids will always look up and around) and concentrate too much on what’s piling before us, on our table or in our mind. And sometimes with the presence of a ‘cutie pie’ in our life and attending to their call, it gives us a chance to see things at their level and through their eyes, sometimes wanted us to slow down and pay attention to things that we have long forgotten, share their little world of curiosity, …… and also head raised looking up once in awhile and we might be surprise to notice something beautiful too ……

Can you spot the 2nd Rainbow on top? Isn't it so pretty?

Hhhmmm …. This reminds me of a story I once came across. I think it’s something like this …… there was a man who brought a snail for a walk and how he complains the snail is crawling too slow and delay his every steps. And along the way while he walked slowly, he starts to notice the beautiful scenery along the way, smells the flowers and feel the breeze, etc and at the end, he only realised that it’s the snail who brought the man for a walk, wanted him to slow down once in awhile, so that he could enjoy the world and see the world in from different perspectives :) How true it is ....


** Thank you my sweet little Angel for showing Mommy your first little 'Meh-Mow' (rainbow) up there :)
