Perhaps we all have an empty place in our hearts for a loved one now gone, or for love longed for but never realized. And even a beautiful rainbow, or any promise it may represent, can ever fill that empty place.

    I do have a sadness in my heart for my loved ones now gone, but they do fill my heart as well and i like to feel they live as long as love them and keep them in my heart. It does seem to take many years though before I can be happy for the years they have blessed my life instead of only missing them though. I will now look at a rainbow differently now, Randy. Thank you for sharing this thought and I send you hugs and warm wishes over the miles. xoxoxox

  • Thanks so very much for your thoughtful comment, Marjorie! And for the hugs and warm wishes. That means a lot to me!

    The image is brilliant Randy, as is the sentiment. I read something today that said “For those we have lost we have memories, and those memories are treasures”. Cheers, S.

  • Thanks very much! Yes,,, they are treasures!
