When my youngest daughter was ten, she drew me a picture that I still keep at my desk. Included in the simple drawing of a happy face lost within a sea of crayon scribbles were the wisest words I have ever known. Her wisdom has been a guiding light through many bad times. This week, I learned my father has cancer. Her words have once again provided me hope. Twenty years ago, I lost my mother to cancer, and as my family once again embarks on this horrible path, I will continue to look for the light.
“When surrounded by darkness look for the light inside you.”
