I do not consider myself an inspirational writer by any means, but as I stepped outside tonight and looked at the sky, something occurred to me. The best way I can think of to share this thought is to pass along this message for everyone to read. If this applies to you, please use it. I think many of us will agree on some level.
We may be thousands of miles or mere feet apart. We may not be able to share each minute of our lives with each other. We may not see the same occurrences or even understand what each other is thinking or struggling with. We may be leading connected yet completely separate lives from each other. We may miss each other to the point that it hurts deep down in that private place where no one can see. We may feel like we have lost each other in some way. We may begin to fear what we cannot control.
What we can do when these feelings come to the surface is look up toward the sky. Not for guidance or renewed faith, but to look at the sun, the stars, the moon. When you gaze upon these celestial bodies, always remember that while we cannot share everything else, these things we have in common. The same sun, moon, and stars that appear in your skies appear in mine. The same shadows on the moon and constellations that you find in the night sky, I see. The same light that emits from the daytime sun, heating the ground I walk on and brightening the path to my destinations, warms your face in the morning when you step outside and helps to grow the flowers you plant on your porch. These things we can share every day and every night. These things will connect us when nothing else can.
