They say every cloud has a silver lining.
I am a lover of life, love, living and most of all hope
We all start hearing about silver linings as young kids
Then we start using the term silver lining in every cloud
It becomes part of our vocabulary especially when life happens
and we find ourselves comforting someone, or giving ourselves a pep talk
I have experienced a lot of silver linings, too many to number
Silver linings could be lessons learned, obstacles avoided, better opportunities
and most of all, people, usually people provide these silver linings.
These have happened because of the quality people not quantity
that have graced my life these past 3 decades and change
If you dare to look, you too will see your silver linings
to every cloud you encounter. Don’t forget your silver linings
Even better, be a silver lining to someone else
