It was hard getting out of bed this morning. There is a thick blanket of clouds covering the mountain. The weather guy is calling for thunder storms today. I thought I would plug in my "happy light" and get a good dose of sunshine to start my day off. For those of you who read the blog last year, you often heard me talk about my "happy light". It is one of those lights that helps fight off seasonal affective disorder. In reading my comments about the lack of sunshine, my dear friend Pat Lawley whom I met on the mountain, decided to make me a gift. He is an incredible stain glass artist. He decided to bring the sunshine to me.
He and his wife, Jeanie, live in Birmingham. We met up with them when we went down there for our marathon. That is when he blew me away with such an amazing gift. I was honored to have had someone, besides my husband, spend so much time in something that would bring me such happiness and peace of mind.
