Greta always said, “dear, keep walking in sunshine!” no matter how terrible my day started, i always felt sunny walking home from greta’s house-even beneath the winter starlight.
I arrived at greta’s house today just after sunset. an ambulance had stopped a few feet from her door, it’s red lights flashing. when i ran into the old house, greta recognized me right away.
She smiled at me with her unforgettable twinkling blue eyes. she was almost out of breath when she reached out and softly touched my arm. her last words to me were “dear, keep walking in sunshine!”
