Reflective Light makes me emotional

SO I WAS SITTING IN OUR HOUSE READING AND LOOKED UP AND OUTSIDE MY WINDOW AND SAW THIS:

I THEN WALKED OUTSIDE AND WAS DAZZLED BY THIS:
THIS:


THIS:
AND THIS:

IT WAS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL RAINBOW I HAVE EVER SEEN. 

MANY PEOPLE BELIEVE RAINBOWS SYMBOLIZE GODS COVENANT WITH NOAH THAT HE WILL NEVER FLOOD THE EARTH AGAIN. THIS IS TRUE, BUT AFTER READING MY FRIENDS BLOG I WAS REMINDED THAT IT ALSO SYMBOLIZES THAT JAIMEY FREAKING GETS TO BE WITH HIS MOM AGAIN SOMEDAY! 

WHOS JAIMEY YOU ASK? 

HES ONLY THE GREATEST LITTLE BOY WHO DIDN'T DO ANYTHING WRONG BUT LOVE HIS AMAZING MOM SOO MUCH AND SHE FREAKING DIES OKAY! SHE DIES! AND EVEN THOUGH FAMILIES CAN BE TOGETHER FOREVER WHENEVER I EAT BISCUITS AND SYRUP  I'LL NEVER GET OVER IT!!(Explanation below)

(P.S. This movie is emotional terrorism)


  
Okay so some of you may remember this movie from primary back during the glorious years of beeping slides. (Sadly the beeps have been removed from the youtube version.)
Strangely I remember this movie from random family Sunday breakfasts of 90-93. 
All 7 of us would be sitting at the kitchen table at 7am sunday morning eating biscuits and syrup. I would be attempting to calm my morning anger issues and try not to kill Callie (my little sister) that was singing "I am a child of God" in her cutsie high pitched 5 year old voice. Trevor(my little brother) would then routinely spill his glass of milk and start crying. Jacque(my older sister) didn't talk, just exuded coolness and looked like she just came back from a butt rock tour that seemed to originate in her bedroom. Her hair was awesomely big (and coveted by all) and concealed my older brother Travis sitting next to her. He would generally try to irritate anyone and everyone so we would know he was present behind the wall of hair. As we all ate our biscuits and syrup my Dad would stand up walk over the the radio and turn on the audio version of "build you a rainbow."  At first noone was listening, but by the time jaimey was stating " you just cant die mom, you just can't"  we were all staring straight forward using every ounce of strength to prevent the tears. 

This is my question: Why did my parents think that a story of a little boy who lost their mom was appropriate breakfast entertainment? Can you just picture 5 pajama wearing,  sleep deprived kids with bed head sitting at  the breakfast table with the most emotionally disturbed looks on there faces that seem to scream "what the Hell! (er..heck)"  
I guess some things in life just don't make sense. 

All I know is that whenever I see a rainbow I smile and think "thats Jaimeys mom, sending him reflective light love."

My Dads cooler than your Dad

This is my dad
This is typically how you will see my Dad. Decked out in work gear and serving from 6 in the morning until 12:00 at night. He never stops. When I was little, I thought he was bionic...I still kind of do. 
He is always the first one in line to help anyone and everyone,because he can do anything,(seriously...anything!) but never expects anything in return. He is a true example of unselfish giving of his God given talents. 
My dad has always been the life of the party. I remember people use to always say "You must have so much fun in your home with a Dad like that." My dad can always make me laugh, except when he tries to give my baby pepsi  and frosting. 
He thinks its funny. I dont.
My Dad is respected by all, partly because they have seen him tear a phone book in half. (My friends from high school still talk about it.) 
My dad is tough as nails and has a scar on his bicep to prove it. If you ask he will gladly tell you the scars appearance was a result of his muscles getting so big they blew up. 
I could go on and list all of my dads amazing character and elaborate on how his great example made me a better person, but that would take all night...and I don't do well with out sleep. 
So I am simply going to say...My Dad is a rare breed. A diamond in the rough. Anyone who knows him will attest to this. He amazes people. He amazes me. 
He is a giant among men and  a treasure to his family. Love you Dad

P.S. and yes. My dad can beat up your dad.
