Writerly Wednesday – Look on the Sunny Side


I opened the small can and blinked. The yellow paint was so bright it was as though I looked up at the sun.


“Can I see?” Sarah’s voice echoed in her empty bedroom.


I lowered the can. Her eyes widened and she smiled. She bounced and clapped her little hands. “Ooooh, it’s sooooo sunny,” she squealed.


“Are you sure about this colour?” I looked down at my smiling daughter.


Sarah nodded her head.


“Okay.” I knelt behind the bedroom door and carefully painted along the edge. The small strip of paint brightened the room.


“Mommy,” Sarah said.


“Yes.”


“That’s bright.”


I closed my eyes and spots appeared behind my eyelids. “Yes, it is.”


“Just one wall,” Sarah said.


“Don’t you like it?” I looked at my daughter.


“I love it, but I don’t wanna where my sunglasses inside the house.”


I laughed. Who was I to argue with a five-year-old?
