A Ray of Sunshine
Remember the tune 'Look For The Silver Lining'? Oh, you're not as old as me and have never heard of it!! Sorry, you missed a great song. It was written by Jerome Kern and goes like this.
I look for the silver lining
Whenever clouds appear in the blue
Remember somewhere the sun is shining
So the right thing for you to do
is make it shine for you.
A heart full of joy and gladness
will always banish sadness and strife
So always look for the silver lining
and try to find the sunny side of life.
There have been so many dark clouds on my horizon lately. This song came to mind this morning as I rejoiced in the birth of a new great grandson. Life has come full circle.
The baby was named Dylan Joel, born at 12:31 a.m. Jan 12, 2011, just 1 1/2 weeks after his great grandpa died. What a blessing that we see new life, new hope, a new beginning. And, oh, how his great grandpa would have adored him. I got to visit with the new parents and baby today. He's so alert, so beautiful. He's that silver lining in the dark clouds.
