O Radiant Dawn,
splendor of eternal light, sun of justice:
come and shine on those who dwell in darkness and in the shadow of death.
For many of us with depression, it comes on all of a sudden and without warning sometimes. We need that sunshine to come hit us when that happens. We need it more than you really know. For me, I know that I can feel the light, even in the darkness. I know I am not alone in the face of darkness, and all that happens when that tries to consume me.
Last night, prime example of this happening. My wife, I have not told her this at the time of publishing this, and not that I am keeping it from her, but for the simple fact that it has not come up in conversation yet. I was damn near in tears last night, for not one reason at all. She kept me from breaking and didn’t even know it.
Everyone needs that light. Smile at someone today, and just try to be nice. We all could use more kindness in life. You never know when you are the one that keeps someone from falling into the darkness headfirst.
