Glimmers of light, that’s what I’ve been seeing through the last two months. In the midst of my sadness at the illness and subsequent passing our sweet dog, there have been moments of light peeping through.
Glimmers Of Light
Already, with the pandemic things are hard enough, so if there was one thing I was determined to do is not give in to grief. Yes, I still cry when I think of him suffering at the end. My heart still aches when I see the empty place near my bed that was his. But I’ve been trying to talk about all his mad ways, his stubbornness at times and all the little mischievous things he used to get up to. For the last few days, I can actually look at his pictures and smile sometimes. In the words of Dumbledore from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, “Happiness can be found in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”
Today’s pictures were lying in my phone – taken some years ago. I like how the light glimmers through the fog and the leaves.
I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest. I do not judge the universeThe Dalai Lama
