You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You’ll never know, dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away
The sun looked like it had developed a cataract overnight and seemed old, dull and dim.
It looked as though it was having trouble getting enough light for itself, much less for our planet.
I asked mom what she thought of the sun and she said, “It’s just upside down. That’s what happens when it’s upside down.”
“Upside down?” I asked. “How did it get upside down?”
“God did it,” she answered.
“How did God do it?” I asked.
“Only God knows,” she said.
Then she added in a whisper, “God told me the the secret.”
“Pray tell, what’s the secret, mom?” I asked.
“Well, God told me … but I didn’t know what he said, because it was all in Spanish.”
I swear, at that exact moment, the cloud cover above us narrowed and the sun winked at me!
