Embrace Life…

I am blessed.  I know it.  I feel it every day in my life.  Even when that little voice brings darker thoughts, I can always kick it out with the basic knowledge and belief that no matter what LIFE IS GOOD.

So when I read about the suicide of a young softball star, Brianne Matthews, I was struck at her mother's assertion as to the 'why?'.  She said, "no answer was going to be good enough."  And this one statement boils down to what I am constantly asserting to my children – that life is good.  Nothing is bad enough that it cannot be changed or the path made smoother by the love of your family and friends.

This chart I saw on Facebook and immediately made a background on my cell phone.  Then I showed it to the kids.  I told them, it is that simple.  I believe this with all my heart.

So today's card embodies the message.  Look up.  There is always something there to look forward to.  Don't give up on life.  It is a precious gift.  I couldn't embody that feeling any better than Mo Manning has with this stamp from Stampavie, 'Soaking Up The Joy'.

I'm going to continue soaking up a weekend full of rain and kids playing indoors.  Hugs to all.  See you on Monday.
