A Little Bit of Sunshine


I am now working at the same college that I graduated from over 20 years ago. There is so many memories there, each day I love to remember. One reoccurring memory I have almost everyday is of me walking to my car and seeing a note on my windshield.

I was dating a guy at the time and he would leave notes on my car each time he walked past my car to and from class and the boys dorm. He called me his sunshine and each note was uplifting. I would run to my car after each class in hopes that I got another note. I loved these little encouragements through out my day.

Today I find myself hoping that one of his notes are on the window. It is a split second thought. Then I remember he’s dead. Him and I had parted ways. He got married and had a little girl. On a trip where his wife was driving the car, he took off his seatbelt to reach something his crying daughter had dropped from her car seat. In that instant the car hit black ice and there was a terrible accident. He was killed immediately.

All these thoughts race through my mind. I miss him, I miss his notes, I miss having someone being so uplifting in my life. I want to have daily notes today. I ask God to be my “love note provider” each day. Some days I get those notes and some days I am much too busy to notice them.

I realize that I too can give notes of sunshine to others. I can be an encouragement to someone on their way. He had called me his sunshine. Maybe my light does still shine.

Let me be your sunshine today! I pray that you are well and happy. I wish a day of peace and laughter upon you. If I was there I would give you a bit hug. You are so wonderful. You are a one of a kind. God really did a great job when he made you. I am so lucky to have you as my friend.

Have a super day!


P.S. Could you do me a favor today and go leave a little note on someone’s car for me. Then write me and tell me about it. I want a little sunshine to be spread a long way.

  1. Hi Meghan, your light still shines, my friend, in a beautiful way – it comes across in the way that you write and express your thoughts and feelings. You are a gift to your friends.

    I thought you’d like to know that I do something similar to what you suggested. I leave pink heart-shaped sticky notes, anonymously, on cars, park benches, inside books etc saying ‘Have a great day. From a stranger x 🙂 ‘ I hope it cheers someone up and makes them feel special when they least expect it! Love to you, Meghan xxx ❤ 🙂

    P.S. I'm thinking of closing down my blog page as there is too much 'history' in it and I want to move on, if that makes sense. Also, I only have two active followers now (yourself and a friend called Pat). I've just started writing a new, totally different style blog. If you are interested in taking a look, please send me an email at ellie.thompson@email.com and I will send you the link. Take care xxx

  2. I’m so sorry to hear about your friend’s accident. That must have been awful for you all. I’m sure he would be very proud of you if he were to meet you now. I too leave ‘gifts’ for strangers….I hope it makes the world go round better. I am very pleased to have found your blog, I really am. Take care of yourself x
