{this memory} 48

This is the story behind last Monday's {this moment}.

You're in Central New York - on my side porch, to be precise.

I painted this rainbow on my porch ceiling when I built this home in 1985. I told my daughters it was for them - that whenever they came home and looked up to see the rainbow, they would know I loved them.

Both of my daughters are grown and with challenging careers. The older one has a child of her own and may one day paint her own rainbow, but the meaning behind this rainbow remains pure - although I may be the one who looks at it the most.

It serves still its purpose - I am reminded of how proud I am of them and how much I love them.

So many wonderful memories - I am a fortunate man.
