Shining Brightly

Have you ever met one of those people whose light seems to shine bright?  I’ve been lucky to have known three.  They are always humble, generous, kind and don’t look for attention – except if it involves fun. And yet, like moths to a flame, you can’t help but find yourself drawn to them.  They immediately make you feel like you belong in their circle.  You become part of their family, no questions asked.

The trouble is, when they leave this earth – and it’s always too soon – only then do you realise that the world has gotten just a little dimmer.

  2. I don’t know of whom you talk here but clearly it was a beacon in your life. March 24th is also my son’s birthday and although I very much hoped for a pisces, he waited a bit too long for that sign – and also around this date my youngest sister died – she was, for much of her life, a shining light too…. sadness and happiness are, of course, close bed fellows and I wish you the grace to see your friend’s LIGHT he left and that you take up your light and make life even more bright and beautiful with your sunny and mostly joyful disposition.

    • It was actually meant for a few. My mother’s hubby died March 19 and his birthday was the same as Mick’s and they were both ridiculously bright lights. It was also for my son’s friend who died last August at the age of 22 and who was, he too, a bright light.
      My first boyfriend was a pisces… fire and water – not really a good thing 😉 My niece’s birthday is the 24th and my son’s the 31 and then me, two weeks later so a bunch of Aries.
      And thank you for that last bit xoxo

      • wow, that’s quite the collection! And LOL re your first bf….. my HH is a pisces and GOD, he’s blxxdy hard work. Me, the well-balanced Libra woman and him….
        My son is on the 24th, brother 27th, I have a total of 19 pisces, and within the family alone 7 Aries, all together, the Aries counting = 21! Some are in heaven but still – a ‘heavy’ load of strong characters…. (incl S & you) 🙂
