I REMEMBER AS A CHILD lying on a grassy knoll under a cloud filled sky gazing at the different shapes. Sometimes birds would fly by or a bee would buzz overhead. But I was reminded recently that the sky can be a ceiling, too, sometimes in a hospital setting when looking upward from a bed.
My husband was a little groggy after having a common procedure done to shed light on his puzzling health issues. Although he will be up and about seeing the true misty blue of BC skies today, I took pictures of his view from yesterday where there were inspiring notes from above to consider. I was struck by words from an unknown author that said, “You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.”
Monumental strength is required, at times, simply to push back against the tide of negativity and to stay optimistic when faced with challenges in life.
