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.
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?
