Life is no picnic. There are so many woes, personal and in the big wide world, still I find joy is in great abundance. Today I picked tomatoes, read a bit, spent over 4 hours at Fry's trying to get a computer issue resolved. Okay, the computer thing wasn't delightful, but I remained pleasant and in the end I think my attitude helped. I think my problem will soon be resolved.
I am grateful for my life, my family, the wonderful comfort I take from creative pursuits. Those joys ease the stresses of life. I never, ever want to become blinded to the good and beautiful in this world.
