Appreciate the Storms of Life for the Rainbows that Follow

Never have I ever been more tried and tested than when my mother took ill. Never have I ever felt so helpless and useless as the reality set in that I could not simply love her ailments away, although God knows I tried. It felt like the worst pain imaginable to see her in pain and in the early moments of her hospitalization I was paralyzed with the fear of possibly losing the woman that has been with me the longest. However, it was at the very moment when all my fears began to win over my faith, that a crack in the storm cloud began to appear. Through the widening crack, I saw the light and my faith began to get stronger. It happened at that moment when my mother wrapped her arms around me and held me close. At that moment I felt so safe, in her arms. I felt comfort in her arms and even in the thick of her own trying storm, she still knew how to soothe my worried spirit. When I looked into her eyes after our embrace, I could still see my Mommy beyond her illness, as she did what she’s always done, take care of me. It’s second nature to her to care for me, even in her time of need. That is what refueled my faith. Her light, amid her storm, reminded me that a rainbow is coming our way and until it arrives, I will continue to pray. Rainbows represent God’s love for us even after a vicious storm and I believe my Mother’s Eyes are the door to our family’s rainbow.

You see crisis gives us much-needed information even though we rarely ask for it. Crisis aka storms, wake us up, get our attention, and teaches us the new information needed for our future and if it all came in the form of good, we probably wouldn’t pay as much attention to them. We probably wouldn’t take them as seriously and might not even notice them at all, so storms flow through our lives hard, clear and jolting enough to keep us on our toes and clocked-in for the win. Without them, our Mo Better might not ever begin. Therefore, always remember to appreciate the storms of life, at least for the rainbows that follow.
