My dearest friend refers to her as 'Sunbeam'. This daughter of mine can walk into a room and radiate happiness and joy anywhere. Her love of life is remarkable and infectious.
Recently, I have simply been putting one foot in front of the other, getting through has been the goal. I have been forced to come to conclusions that seem completely out of my realm of understanding, feeling isolated, confused and defeated.
and becoming increasingly proficient at simply shuffling through a perpetual fog.
Luckily, this amazing daughter of mine grabbed me recently and we danced,
we spun and dipped and tilted with happiness.
And we sang louder than we should.
She reminded me that when laughter presents itself, embrace it.
When an opportunity for fun arises, participate in it.
Because the best parts of your life will be these small moments of pure joy, smiling and twirling with someone who truly matters to you.
Oh, to dance brave and unafraid, more often.
I am hoping that this weekend you will slow down, tilt your face up, and bask in the beauty of your own Sunbeam!!
