They sparkle and shine when the sun is out,
but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealeed
only if there is light from within.
I first read Ms. Kubler-Ross' book On Death and Dying
after my father's passing in 1989.
The book's message altered the path of
my life and
has colored my thinking ever since.
Today, Mr. Lee and I celebrate 16 years of dating.
Regardless of traveling in sunshine or shade,
we have shared a path.
We feel blessed each and every day.
Never part in anger.
And praise the Lord each and everyday.
It is what happens in a marriage of
equally yoked individuals.
