I wonder why we have to get so caught up in the seriousness of life that we so easily can put aside the giggly days of happy. I look at this picture all of the time and am reminded of how happy I was…how happy I can be.
Sometimes, life is just so full of challenges that we find it difficult to make time for the happy, but it’s necessary to have a good life.
So, I pray that I might in my mind travel back to days (yesterday or yesteryear) when things feel overwhelming and remember how happy I can be, if I simply allow myself.
For today, I have two healthy adult children, a healthy husband who loves me, and a mother who is just around the corner literally and figuratively. No matter what comes into our paths, the happy is right there…just around the corner. Just a smile away. We just have to take the time to remind ourselves…each of us.
