The Day Brightener

Because everyone has the right to be truly free and happy

The Sky That Made Me Cry

I looked up today, and the sky made me cry.

For it was perfect.

An uninterrupted expanse of bright blue hue.

With a light and luminosity to awaken my eyes

and brighten my soul.

It stirred feelings of hope for my place in the world,

faith in a world much bigger than myself,

belief in a magic above and within,

and  joy in being part of it all.

And so now I can truly understand why,

When people think of heaven they turn to the sky.

    First thing tomorrow morning take the girls outside raining or not, spin three times to the right arms outstretched. There is magic present … I can feel it!
