Yesterday morning I heard something that I hope sticks with me every single day for the rest of my life.

The sweetest lady I know – like never stops smiling – looked at the child she was dropping off and she said the following words: make your own sunshine.


This lady has been through more trials than any one person should have to in a lifetime.

Hard trials.

But she chooses to make her own sunshine every single day. She chooses a smile, and she chooses to pass that on to others.

Life’s hard. The days are long and the soul can grow weary, but we get a choice.

We get a choice. I’m going to play that on repeat.

And I’m gonna choose sunshine.

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13
