Cheer The Folks Up !!!

Be Their Sunshine

Life is full of ups and downs, as we all know.

Little things can make friends and family members unhappy or even depressed, so make it your job to make them feel better.

There are so many people, so many lives on this planet, too numerous, in fact, to count.

From this great multitude, we wondrously find ourselves together with those in our families, as parents and children, as brothers and sisters, as husbands and wives.

If we do not live joyfully and cheerfully with whom we share this profound bond, what is life for?

Should the atmosphere at home be sombre, you can be the ‘sunshine’. By being a shining presence, you can cast the light of hope on your mother, father, children and indeed the whole family.

    My older son, who is 14 and who lately seems to be worlds away from me most of the time these, stopped and backtracked as he passed me in the kitchen yesterday. Cocking his head to the side, he asked me point blank: “Mom, do you need a hug?”
    My instinct was to say no, to pretend that I was fine. Instead, I honored his perceptiveness and told him, “Yes, I do need a hug.”
    After delivering a crushing bear hug, he held my gaze for a few moments more with a wide-eyed, goofy stare, cocking his head comically even further to the right; suddenly, every worry dissolved into laughter. I don’t think I will ever forget that moment!

    What is needed is sometimes so small. The hard part is learning to notice.

      It’s always nice to get a hug, particularly an impromptu one.

      Lovely that your son noticed your need, so many people are blind to the needs of others.

      Another cherished moment to add to the virtual album 🙂
