There were a lot of calls yesterday for UFO sightings around here.
"Something very powerful is in the sky! There, see it? In between the crack in those clouds!"
Turns out it was just the sun deciding to make an appearance.
Just the sun? Did I say just the sun?
Seriously, the sun has been in hiding for so much of the spring, not to mention the very long winter, that this is a pretty big deal.
The atmosphere was so gray, in so many ways. To encourage myself I would think of how the sun is still always shining behind those thick clouds, but it doesn't make me any warmer.
Today, I feel like a different person with this bright UFO around. It's been hanging around all day!
Suddenly, there is warmth, brightness, hope. And I can't help but think that if I did not know the depth of dark gray days, I could not possibly appreciate this day as much as I do.
Happy sunshine northwest Ohio!
