Are you a believer in signs? I am. Some days it’s the only thing that gets me through. I try to be upbeat, positive, you know, the funny one, most of the time.
Take today for instance. A fun family time is coming up this evening. My daughter, three of her daughters and I are all going to have a fun time. We’ve looked forward to it. But then what looms up but some personal news I can’t be upbeat about. And it’s been happening more than usual lately. Maybe you’ve noticed in my writing, probably not.
Back to the signs. . .I was sitting here feeling all down and the sun came in the window, it’s been on and off with clouds all day, but it just shown through extremely brightly. For some reason I looked up and saw this:
I don’t have a good camera, but see what it is? A smiley face! I’ve never seen it appear before and now it’s gone, clouds are back. It was only there a few minutes. I rely on these hopeful signs. Some I’ve experienced are, seeing the sun suddenly illuminate a bright autumn leaf, a bird landing next to me and just staying there, and other nature related happenings. I notice the dance of a leaf across a parking lot when waiting for the bus. I feel privileged to see these things, and appreciate them as a gift. A gift from who or what I have no idea. Sometimes like today, a sign appears and I have to smile and think, it’s okay, I can handle it.
Elaine might say it’s the universe talking to me. What do you think?
