When we wake and see those rays of sunshine, we can’t wait to jump out of bed, no need to snuggle down and take that extra ten mins before stepping out into the fresh morning air. The sunshine warms our homes, the garden springs into life, and we shed all those winter layers. And on top of that if you are someone’s sunshine, you make their world brighter, radiant, the air is full of cheerfulness, and we maybe all have little rays of sunshine in our life some where, happy little people who make others feel happy, especially in difficult situations, because they just shine and shine.
