Rays of Light

Sometimes it feels that you're in a pit of darkness and you just can't get out.
Well meaning people offer encouragement:
"Be positive"
"Think of all you have to be thankful for"
"You have so many positive things happening"

As if you would choose to remain in the pit.
Just think your way out!
think! think! think!

But even in the pit there are rays of light
Norm, Kate & Cy, Jeff
Silly black and white dogs
faithful brown ones,
lifelong dear friends
singing frogs at night

and
an unexpected letter

I hope rays of light shine on you today.
