Be The Best.

Under the stars

Have you ever spent some time staring at the stars?

I had the chance tonight following this spectacular sunset on Vancouver Island.

With no city lights, the stars began their dance as the sun left the stage and only continued in intensity as the evening brought its curtain of dark focus on the sky’s next show.

When I looked up at the stars, I thought of many things…but of course one of the big thoughts was of Chris.

I imagined him shining down on us all through the sun and then keeping us company through the stars.

Just like the many days when we couldn’t see the sun in April, May and June and simply had to trust it was there, it’s the same with the stars.  They are there every night, but I have not seen stars like I’ve seen tonight in many many years.

It’s interesting that it is in the darkest of darkness that the stars seem to shine brighter.  It’s a matter of remembering those stars shine this bright even if we can’t seem them most nights.

Shine on.
