Hi everyone! Last summer I introduced Island Postcards for those days when there wasn’t a lot of news – like today. I’ll have a full blog out later this weekend (or Monday), but for tonight I had to share what many of us who were on the island got to see this morning.
We’d had pretty much 24 hours of straight rain, so when Ted and I took our coffee mugs out to the porch around 8:30 this morning (we slept in) we were happy to see a few breaks in the clouds, with some blue showing through. Almost as soon as we were settled two tourists rode by, and one shouted to the other, “Quick, hand me your camera!” Ted and I both got up to look in the direction she was pointing and saw this . . .
Now this rainbow has been the talk of Mackinac for most of the day. Nearly everyone we ran into brought it into the conversation (or we did), talking about where we were when we saw it. Of all the pics of the rainbow on Facebook, these next four – taken by friend Pam Day from her home up near the airport – are five of the best. Thanks, Pam, for sharing!
Hoping each of you has had a good week and enjoys your weekend. It’s going to be a busy one for us, so I think it will be Monday before I get a blog written with all the newsy news.
Blake and his team received their work permits on Tuesday of this week and are now frantically working on getting plane tickets and last minute details pulled together. I know this is such a relief for all of them, and it is for me too because I want them to be able to begin teaching when they’re supposed to. But, on the other hand, it also makes the whole thing very real to me, as a mom. Thank you for your prayers, and please continue to lift them up. I should have more details by the next time I write.
About three days ago a friend told me a regime of care for this blasted cough I’ve had for now going on four weeks. It was what her doctor told her to do when she had it. It involves nasal spray and antihistamines, and after three days I’m telling myself I’m noticing a tiny improvement. Or maybe it’s just because I’m SLEEPING all night and practically all day! I’m going to stick with it a few more days and see how things go. A medical center visit may still be in my future.
