Woman's Search for Happiness
|Kaya says, "Please, please, pretty please may I have some of your delicious human foods??"|
Oh if you could only hear me laughing now...
No sooner do I go public with my hiatus than another surprise comes my way. It's still a crazy long shot of an opportunity. But it turns out there are still a few irons in this fire after all.
It was a beautiful Sabbath today. I had several opportunities to remember and be reminded of the blessings in my life, and that I am not alone, and that there are others who are mindful of the challenges I face. And sometimes, right when you are not really busy doing anything, it is nice to be remembered for being helpful.
It is the ultimate challenge sometimes to be happy in spite of difficult or unhappy circumstances around us. Tonight I can go to bed and truly say that in spite of difficult or challenging circumstances around me, that I am happy. Maybe it isn't the life or the world that I would have picked or designed for myself. But I can be (and I am) happy with what I have made from what I have been given. And that isn't something I can say (or have said) very often. And being able to do so tonight makes it that much sweeter to be able to say.
