I have the two best jobs in the world.
First, is this one--I occasionally get paid to write about my longest and favorite hobby: beauty. I work so hard on it and I hope it shows.
Second, is my day job--I take care of two little girls, 6 years and 20 months. They are a handful and couldn't be more different. I work so hard taking care of them and I hope it shows.
Today's Story Behind the Pic is a little different--it's not actually a picture of a moment or an event, but of a drawing:

"I made this for you. It's you," she said after wheeling over to the art table and handing the drawing to me. She's currently in a full-leg cast and uses a wheelchair (or grownups) until her broken leg heals.
It couldn't have come at a better time--she handed me this the day after my friend died. While she is aware of death, she didn't know of my latest loss.
It made me smile, but what she said next, really struck me:
"That's rain at the top. If you want a rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain."
A common sentiment I've heard before, but in that moment, it really got to me. All of this "rain," all of these bad things happening this year to me, these losses and more, mean a rainbow is coming soon.
I can't wait.
