#celebratelu2105 The Sun Will Come Out


I saw a glimpse of a sunrise this week. I was near work after another day of a horrific commute,so I was a bit later than I should have been arriving at that spot; however, the orange glow peaking over the horizon was bright as a brand new penny, right out of the mint!  It's been a while, almost two months, since I saw that wonderful welcoming image on my way to work, but I could feel the smile build inside. 

Perhaps it's been "living in darkness" that has contributed to more than the usual number of accidents and crazy drivers of late? Perhaps it's been "darkness" that has contributed to grumpier than usual parents and colleagues?  Perhaps it's been the lack of Vitamin D" that has contributed to crankier than usual kids?  

So this week, I celebrate the bright and wonderful sign that (as Annie sang) the sun will come out (some day soon) on our way to work.  Some day (soon) we'll need to find those sunglasses.  Some day (soon), the darkness will give way to light and perhaps drivers, colleagues, and the kids will be a little less cranky!

You could have read my mind with this post! This past week, I had to put on my sunglasses TWICE on my way home. That gives me hope! :)

The sun is coming back!!! I love this line, "I could feel the smile build inside." It brought a smile to MY face!! :)

Yes! The sunglasses came out this week and I thank you for encouraging me to stop and think about the sunshine.

Darkness is certainly a factor in human behavior and mood. It is much easier to be kind and happy on a sunny day. It still so dark in Estonia. I can't wait for the first time I see the sun again on my way to school.

Sunshine is so necessary for our souls - even just a sliver of it.

Yes! The sun is coming, and we need it! Hang in there! Sometimes I will stand outside after school, even when I don't have "duty" to see the sun. :)

Anita, there is something to be said about a shot of Vitamin D for the soul.

I celebrated the glimpse of sun I received today as I left church! Our grayness this time of year does seem to contribute to a general sense of grumpiness. A wonderful welcoming image that is much needed - so glad you saw that orange glow this week!
