I want to be like the moon!
The moon has no light of its own. The only way we can see it is when it reflects the light of the sun.
The moon has it greatest power when it is full. When it is in perfect alignment with both the earth and the sun. When this happens, its beauty is fully appreciated by those on earth and its influence can be seen by the pull of the tides of the ocean and some people believe their own emotions are affected by the full moon.
Without the sun, the moon is nothing more to us than a lifeless cold rock that drifts alone in space 241,821 miles away. But by reflecting the sun, it becomes something of beauty and something that can sometimes take our breath way.
Yep…I want to be like the moon…but if and only if…I can reflect the light of the sun.
