A Smile Goes a Long Way

Today I am going to talk about something that has been bothering me for a long time. Do you know anyone that is always unhappy? I don't understand these people. They always have something wrong in their life. They are also the people who don't like to see others happy. Well I am sorry but we all make our lives what they are. You choose to be unhappy. You choose to smile today. You choose to say, "This too shall pass". I am not saying I don't get depressed or yell at the top of my lungs, "Why me?!?!?!" but everyday........?? I have been trying to make a conscious effort to be happy every day. Life is too short. The older I get the more I realize this. So take this day forward and life to the fullest.....and remember that no matter how bad it is at that moment you are important in someones life.....this too shall pass......and you will be stronger from it.

An end table in my living room. I love all my little trinkets!!!!

This is actually a birdbath with a garden angel positioned inside. I added the greenery for a halo and around the base of the angel. :)
