This life is full of challenges. We can get weighed down so heavy with the everyday things of life. Then put the challenges with that we can begin to sink.
There may be hopes and dreams we held dear that became dark and even dashed to pieces.
Just as the sun disappears every night and appears to sink, we are guaranteed after the dark night, it will rise again and renew us with hope for a new day.
My hopes and dreams have been ripped away from me at times, through out life. I thought what I had was a sure thing. What I depended on was built on a sand foundation, washed away right out from under me at times. Left crushed and wondering what will I do now...Somehow the sun of hope always rose. I found a way to pick myself up and take the next step as it presented itself. I surrender to the flow of life and while I still need to make decisions I try really hard not be anxious. I try to keep hope burning bright on the horizon of my life. I know now, that even if that sun sinks temporarily a new one will rise again the next day. I will not be in darkness forever.
I want this small yet powerful piece to represent that hope we need to keep us vibrant and full of energy. In dark times, I want this piece to be looked upon as a memory aid for what hope felt like when it was lost for a time.
To remember, dear ones, that the sun always rises and we can too! No matter the storms! No matter the losses! It's hard to see how it will return to us, somehow it always does. Even if its just the small rays cresting over the ocean to your heart, it is there and it is a start.
