Somewhere Over the Rainbow

~Remembering Sandy~
Today my mom kept seeming to pop into my head.
This was special because I don't know my mom.
I never had the chance to meet her because she died of breast cancer when I was a baby.

So there were 3 times today when I thought of her:

#1: My dad told me I looked exactly like her in 
the picture of me in the sweater I posted yesterday.
#2: I almost got hit by lightning... 
while walking into the gym a bolt of lightning hit the ground about 5 feet in front of me. 
[I SPRINTED & screamed like a maniac to get inside after that!]
My mom survived getting struck by lightning!
#3: I saw a huge rainbow that almost seemed like it was perfectly over me. 
While at the store I could see the arc on the left side [the picture above.]
Then while driving home I saw the other side of the rainbow. 
Everywhere I went it was like it was exactly over me. 
Rainbows have always been a really special thing to our family that always
makes everyone in my family think of Sandy, so it was really special to me! 

I like to think days like this are when she is watching over me & happy about what I'm doing! 
And that must mean she's happy & excited for my move to Savannah too!! 

Love you mom!
