I SAID IT COULDN'T BE DONE

Rosita Perez was busy in the kitchen one day when she heard the cry. "Come out, Mom! You just have to see this!"

She hesitates. Nothing could be that important. Besides, She's very busy frying potatoes.

But they insist, so she reluctantly goes outside - and finds stretched across the sky, reaching from one end of the city to the other, the most magnificent rainbow she had ever seen. They squeal and point and express their wonder at the beauty. They run around the block calling other kids outside to see this outrageous display that nature is offering.

Rosie oldest child runs to get her camera, and Rosie warns her that it much too expansive a scene for her to capture on her camera and that it would be a waste of film for her to try to make a picture of that rainbow, marvelous as it was.

She ignores her mother.

Years later, as Rosie was looking through an old photo album, she comes across an incredible picture of a rainbow, and she remembers that day.

Her daughter got the entire thing by shooting four pictures and combining them perfectly - but she never showed them to her mother. This was the first time she had ever seen it. Why? Rosie said it couldn't be done!

Spend your time encouraging your children and grandchildren to "picture the rainbows" in life!!
