Deciding To Be Happy

I had a long talk with my son Travis last night. He is the child that is most like me of all my children. Depression can take such a toll on your life. It can ruin your health. We talked about depression.

I woke up today and that I decided was a good thing. All the crap with work is just that crap. It ain't my life. It's just something I do so I can afford to do the things that make me happy. Painting and day trips to little artsy New England towns.

And Trina my daughter-in-law posted this new picture and this picture turned my attitude and my sadness into joy. This picture to me is the most beautiful picture in the world. I may have to do a painting of it. It made me laugh and it made me cry...this time they were tears of joy.

Peace, love and baby...This picture touched my heart in a very big way. It brought me such love. A new baby girl. Awww Trina I love you so much, thank you.

Thank you everyone for your time and your thoughts and for just touching a crazy old ladies heart. Thank you.

Bruce is going to cash in his vacation days for money and he is flying me home in August for two weeks.

As for everything else I have to take it one day at a time but for today I am deciding to be happy in this wondrous moment that this picture has brought me.

I look at this picture and all I can think to say is thank you Creator for this beautiful blessing.

Stunning shot. The beauty of it made me take a breath before continuing to read.

We're blessed in this life even if it seems, at times, to be hell on earth.
