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.
