Hello Sunshine, My Old Friend.
Sunshine was for others. This man, this sad and lonely man, did not deserve the sunlight, the reassuring warmth. The ravages of a tormented mind, dismissed the sunshine, dismissed his own validity. And the madness of this man with a broken heart, a broken soul, nearly killed me, nearly saw the sun set on his life forever.
I reached out. The last fragments of a shattered dignity called my name. Slowly, with racing heart and gasping for air, I pulled back the covers to see a wondrous sight. Through the tiny gap between my curtains came forth a streaming shaft of sunshine, glorious sunshine. At that moment, that frozen moment in time, the tears trickled down my face and I began to live once more.
With the support of you, my journey along the highway, destination hope, grows ever strong. I am bathed in sunshine where once there was darkness. I am profoundly grateful.
I have been honoured to have received the "Sunshine Blogger Award" from the lovely and thoughtful Suzanne Bean. Suzanne resides in the beautiful city of Victoria, British Columbia. It is, if you didn't know, the capital of that fair Province and is situated on Vancouver Island. This dear lady is a wonderful writer and an artistic talent to behold. I would kindly suggest, if you have never had the delight of visiting her site, to check it out via this link : Suzanne Bean
If you are down or just need some sunshine in your life, please know that my gift to you is this Sunshine Blogger Award and my heartfelt friendship.
Hello sunshine, my old friend.
