Another day

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/374502525238953840/


The sun lit up the room, laughter filling the air.

Oh, is this what it's like to live in the mountains? To live with a purpose? To see the ever so precious sun set lightly behind the hills?

I could hear the music, but I didn't listen very closely. For I heard another song throughout the room. I heard laughter after you've fallen so far and finally pick yourself back up. I heard flowers embracing the cool wind and the warm sun. I heard one last goodbye from winter and one beautiful hello from spring.

I heard love. 

It was a crazy, beautiful, amazing melody. You'd laugh just sitting there, but you could feel it.

When you saw their faces, scrunched up in laughter. When you saw sunburned faces with a smile upon them. When you... felt their victory of another day gone. 

Another day to eternity. 

But another day full of despair, of hope, of victory, of friendship. 

It's so hard to write about something so utterly amazing. Something that even I can't wrap my head around. 

But I'm glad it happened. I'm glad I'm here.

And to me, that's the most precious gift.

    1. I WANT TO. I WANT TO WITH ALL OF MY SOUL. I AM FROM THE MOUNTAINS. I am a tree that doesn't belong in the city. I am a river running wild. I am the harsh wind and the gentle sun. I belong with the mountains. *cries forever* Keep those mountains pure for me, yeah? I'll stay once I get the chance. And I'll never leave.
