A Rainbow Ride

Jewish tradition teaches that we should try to say 100 blessings every day. 

Sadly, today my work day started with this one:
Baruch ata Ado-nai Elo-heinu melech ha'olam, dyan ha-emet.
Blessed are You, Eternal our God, Sovereign of time and space, the true Judge.
Thankfully, it ended with this one:
Baruch ata Ado-nai Elo-heinu melech ha'olam, zocher ha'brit v'ne'eman bivrito v'kayam b'ma'amaro.
We praise You, Eternal God, Sovereign of the universe, who remembers, is faithful to, and fulfills Your covenant with and promise to creation.
What a rollercoaster day…sort of like riding the arc of a rainbow!
