A Beautiful Day – part one

I draw out my emotions – joy, sorrow, happiness, loss, excitement. I literally draw them out on to paper, feeling relief and glee from the fun of drawing.

This story I began drawing when I found out my first husband had a terminal brain tumor. I finished it after one of my sons was killed.

It is not a story of sadness and loss but of the joy that comes with the new day. Life does go on and beauty awaits us with the rising sun.

My head ached.

To top it off, I was filled with so many emotions . . .

that I thought my heart would break in two.

I tried to be tough and strong but it didn’t work.

I put on a pretty dress but didn’t feel pretty inside.

I fixed my hair with a new hair band but still felt like a mess.

So I pretended nothing bothered me.

a new day (c)sbrink021
I pretended I had attitude.

a beautiful day (c)sbrink019
I even tried to act carefree.

a new day (c)sbrink014
But the truth was . . .
I did care
and I was sad
and I was mad
and I was bewildered
and I felt weak and tired and small.

a new day (c)sbrink006
Have you ever had a day like that?

Then this morning I woke up and saw a new day.

I was filled with hope.

a new day (c)sbrink015
I remembered what you told me . . . I was not alone.

a new day (c)sbrink024
There were lots of people looking out for me.

loving me (c)sbrink
They were there for me even when I was not very lovable.
