Thanks to my dad, we have a crystal in our sun room window that paints the room in rainbows whenever sunlight hits it.
“Rainbows!” Nathan says, very clearly, whenever he sees them. Lately I’ve been tapping the crystal for him sometimes, to make the rainbows dance. Ryan likes them too.
I remember loving the rainbows in my parents’ house growing up, and I think I even remember Dad tapping the crystal for me just the same way. And Dad says that he remembers rainbows from the crystal chandelier in their dining room when he was a kid.
Just a tiny, lovely family tradition…
