This was exactly where we stood last year, muddying the waters with our immature: “I don’t know, let’s just go with the flow.”

The tide turned.

But the sky quickly greyed again, as it always had.

Promises were made. We tried to hold it together for sunnier days, for another possible rainbow, but poor choices— they bled through our fingers like a fistful of water. What was once right as rain was lantern-jawed, on life support. She vanished as soon as she appeared.

The phone rang, it was her. The clouds parted. My sky brightened. Again, our rainbow emerged.

Your story was wonderful; the picture, incredible. Is this one of your photographs? I know you live near Niagara Falls. This is truly an award-winning photograph, and perfect for your story and its title.

How in the world did you capture this masterpiece, Melissa? There must be quite a story behind the taking of this photo. You’ve captured the power and beauty of the falls, and an other-worldly quality as well. I keep going back and enlarging it and studying every aspect of it. It’s so inspiring, as a work of art, and as a celebration of nature.

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
