Sunshine and Storms

If something wonderful is starting or happening in your life, bravo!!!! Relish the time… the sharing… the marvelous memories you are making. On the other hand, if something not-so-wonderful is happening… or something wonderful has ended, please do not lose hope. Your heart may be broken into thousands of pieces. You may be living in a manner that makes you feel utterly off balance. Your world may even feel totally shattered.

We all go through changing times. Some let us feel light, confident, and happy… but at other times shifting shadows deepen the darkness beyond our recognition. Perspective grows more difficult in those shadowed times. While no one else can truly understand how someone feels during those lowest points, we can be powerfully helpful. We can always listen, offer support, and genuinely care. Take heart. Don’t lose faith. The sun will shine again.

  “Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.”

— Theodor Seuss Geisel (pen name Dr. Seuss) (1904 – 1991)

American children’s author and cartoonist
