Face the Sunshine

"Keep your face always toward the sunshine- and the shadows will fall behind you."  - Walt Whitman

On this rainy day, this quote made so much sense.......there seems to have been quite a bit of madness around
our neck of the woods this week.....a child was killed accidentally, three football players gunned down,
a friend's father passed away.  Life has not been its brightest for many the past few days.....and when that happens it is easy to gaze into the darkness and forget that there is sunshine, and it is always shinning somewhere.

Facing the sun, shadows falling behind is so visual isn't it?  For me, it often takes more than words
to help me "get it".  But this one does it brilliantly.  Where ever you are tonight, whatever is taking place in your life, good or bad........remember to face the sun, leave the shadows behind.

By the way, for those of you who send me your good thoughts and healing energies so often.......I had a good day today, my face has been bathed in sunlight, even in the pouring rain.


  1. Lovely message...very helpful. You so often say something here that lifts me up. Thank you.

  2. I hope you're sending that rain our way. I'm ready now since the roof finally got fixed! So that will be my sunshine when the rain comes...hopefully no leaks! Enjoy your week and I do hope your health continues to improve.

  3. Awww Jilda! May you be bathed in sunlight forever and ever! Take care

  4. A beautiful reminder, Jilda. Thanks for sharing it. Peace to all.
