Blessings of Change
If you can find the sunshine in the dark – you can find the happy in the sad.
If you search for the sparkle in the mud – you can find beauty in the mess.
If you seek joy in the tears – you can reap thankfulness in the end.
When the days were dark I found people to lead me by the hand – kicking and screaming the entire way – to a brighter place.
As the days were less dark I began to find my way to that brighter place a little more easily – taking the offered hand – showing me how to get there.
Then the days became brighter and the place I found myself going to each day glowed with brilliant light.
I didn’t need anyone to show me the way, I found it.
Changes happen swiftly and loudly. And quietly and slowly. But they happen.
Be ready to find the blessing in the change.
