“It is almost impossible to watch a sunset and not dream.” – Bern Williams
Sunsets are one of my favorite things (besides shopping and wine). There is a promise of a new tomorrow; erasing the mistakes or pain of today. Yesterday would have been my mother and father’s 39th wedding anniversary. My mother died of breast cancer when I was a little girl and she fought to the end, but there are some things you cannot overcome.
My mom used to tell my dad, myself and my brother it was us against the world… Even though she is not here today, it’s important to be reminded of who the person/people are that I can always count on. My dad called to tell me that even though he knows he would be happier with her by his side, living everyday to the fullest is critical and she would have wanted us to keep dreaming (it was always a priority for her).
Things get tough and there are so many times I want to give up on my dreams, acting as if they cannot come true. But why can’t they? I HAVE to remind myself that there will be bad days. But once the sun goes down tonight and rises anew in the morning, the past will be the past and I have a new day to keep dreaming.
Always keep your dreams alive and don’t give up…
P.S. And don’t forget to enjoy the sunset.
