There was this husband and wife. The husband had always wanted to go to the casinos. But the wife never want to go. When they did play, they never won anything.
One day the husband died. Because the wife missed him so much she went to the casinos they used to play in and sat at the slot machine where they always played. She never really paid attention when her husband played so she was lost. She finally figured out how to put in money and pull down the lever. The second time she pulled the lever, it made a great whirring sound. Nervous she might have broken the machine, she got up from her seat and started to walk away till someone asked her how much she won. She won $1800. The person next to her asked why she was sad, but she replied she wasn't. Deep inside, she thought to herself, "Husband, whenever we went we lost, but now I won and I'm alone because you're not here. How can I be happy?"
The wife wanted to go to Rome to see the pope. One day she went to a grocery store and played the lottery. Something told her to buy this particular scratch off. Going home, she scratched and scratched but didn't know if she won. She went back to the store, she won $10000. So off to Rome she went! There was no one to go with her so she was all alone. But on the plane, she met passengers whose names were the names of her husband, sons, daughters, brothers, and sisters. Even her dog.
Finally in Rome, at the Vatican, she looked up into the sky and said, "Husband, how can I do this all alone? I'm finally here to see the pope and you're not with me. Please show me a sign that you're okay. Show me a rainbow."
She kept walking into the town. She didn't look up till someone said, "Hey look! It's a rainbow!" With tears welling in her eyes, she wept silently.
One day the wife drove on a busy highway where her and her husband used to drive. She wasn't used to driving by herself. She said, "Husband I really miss you right now, it's so hard being alone without you by my side." Looking up through the drivers window, appeared the biggest rainbow she had ever seen. She started crying knowing he had never left her side. That he was always there.
