After walking out of the hospital sometime in January feeling very discouraged, tears rolling down, not knowing what was to happen, I saw this crayon on the ground, which reminded me of my nephew who was in the hospital, on life support. It was his favorite color, and everything was “yellow” to him at the time. I picked that crayon up as if it was some kind of message to not let go, or maybe it was just a coincidence that some kid lost a crayon… what ever it was, I took it and held on to it as a sign that he is going to be just fine.
It was a long journey seeing him go through so much and watching his parents break down, yet still by his side 24/7. They never left that hospital from the day he went in til the day he got out. I keep this crayon in my car for positive vibes and as a reminder that we may be here right now, but anything past this moment is not a guarantee. Cherish those around you, bring people closer even when they become distant. Let go of what’s happened and live in the moment. Enjoy the little things in life as I’m enjoying this yellow crayon each time I sit in my car.
Remember to be kind, as you never know what difficulties others are encountering in their life. Be there for those in need, and love as much as you can. May you all find peace and love within.
