When I was a girl, my Stepdad put some luminous stars on my bedroom ceiling over my bed, there were only four stars and they were in the shape of the Aries constellation, because that’s my star sign.
So when I woke in the night, they were what I saw and they told me immediately that I was home, safe and ‘me’.
Course, that makes my Stepdad sound like a really great parent, actually he normally wasn’t, but he did have a good side and that was one of the times he showed it. He had no idea how to parent at all and had no experience of children until he came into our lives when I was 11.
I suppose the point of my blog today isn’t to talk about my Stepdad, but to talk about how you can’t see the stars if it’s never dark. It’s a vaguely couched analogy for life and how it’s not possible to be happy all the time.
Sometimes you have to have dark times in order to see and appreciate the good things, or to have something to aim for.
In that vein, I followed my mumps from which I now seem to be recovered with an eye infection. I spent two days with a patch over my eye which seemed to help a bit and now I’m not wearing it but it’s still sore and red. Sighs.
Still, I can just about see the stars when I look up… with my good eye.
