Sunshine.

 

“You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You’ll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away”

 

I can’t imagine how many times I’ve sung this to Eleanor over the past few weeks.

The past few weeks full of uncertainty. Full of reality. Full of self-doubt and hardship.
The past few weeks full of new opportunities, new challenges, and new adventures.
The past few weeks full of change—oh, so much change.

I feel these words in my bones.

Yes, Eleanor, you. You are my sunshine.
My only, only, only sunshine.
You give me such deep happiness and light when I cannot find it myself.
I do not know what I would do without you.
Thank you, dear. Thank you for your light.
