My phone buzzed. Flicking the screen, I read the message and smiled. Time to go. I loaded the car, anticipating the celebration.

The end of ceaseless nights, frigid temperatures and depression-soaked days was never guaranteed. Hope sparked an ember, which ignited a promise of sunny days surrounded by dear friends. It buoyed my soul, focusing my resolve to preserve.

Against the odds, the vernal equinox arrived. My friends kindled the fire, as the sea breeze kissed my cheeks. The worst lay behind me.


Keep on writing.
