Finding the colors



When sadness overwhelms us,

Mother Nature is there

to help us find beauty,


to make us stop and absorb the moment,

to find peace in memories.


to find the lining of colors

in an emotionally gray day,


and to make us see the spirits,

free in the sky,

 to feel their presence and find our smile.

“What will Heaven be like?”  Her youthful eyes looked to him for answers.

His breathing tubes got in the way when he tried to speak to her. “You know when you see a really dark rain cloud and most of it is black?”

She nodded her agreement.

“Well, Heaven will be like those glorious slices of silver light that radiate around the cloud. Those little pieces of light give everyone hope for something better.”

She curled up under her Grandfather’s arm and held him as closed his eyes. She knew he was on his way to find that silver light.
