Sunny days

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray.
You’ll never know dear, how much I love you,
Please don’t take my sunshine away.

I have fond memories of my dad singing that song to me when I was a girl. I can even remember where we were one time when he sang it. We were driving up the hill past the Ford dealership in Los Gatos, California, on our way home from somewhere. I remember that Ford dealership because I got a green and white yoyo there when the new Edsels came out. It was as big a dud as they were – fell apart almost as fast as the cars!

I’m glad I wrote out the words to that song. It’s made me think about something besides this weather. I’ve found, and I’m sure you have too, that the sunniest days rarely have to do with weather; they’re about relationships. I am tired of rain, but just thinking of this old song and my dad singing it has perked me up.

Hope you have a sunny week!
