How could I have known
that twilight would usher me in
to a whole new dawn

the dark times help us appreciate the good times more and often act as a catalyst for change that is positive

you couldn't have put this together any better, Annie

Beautiful.
I have found what a difference a day makes over and over it seems.(Something in flight for you.)

Annie,
The simple words that came to my mind were "through your eyes I can see too"

Your post is special.....like you!

to push through dawn's door
must first pass through darkness then
emerge into light
