I love you all for your open hearts and warm regards that you’ve given me. I think I’m starting to come around and I’m truly feeling better each day. In fact yesterday I had a wonderful day. It wasn’t filled with anything extraordinary but it was a good day. Of course I’ll probably still have days of sadness but I’m going to try extra hard to keep things on the bright side. After all I’m a really happy person and it’s very rare to see me not smiling. In fact when I was younger I often was asked why I smiled so much?

I smile so much because I love life…….I have many things to love about it too. I have a wonderful husband, supportive family (my fam and my in-laws), a cute little doggie, and great friends. I’ve traveled to beautiful places, experienced new and exciting things, and found appreciation in all things good or bad. I am fortunate because I have a wonderful home, food to eat, and I always have something to look forward to.....though at times it may not always seem that way.

I truly believe I am an optimist. I just get thrown off balance every once in a while. But not to fear because I’m standing strong right now and want to tell you all that I will get through this. It may not be anytime soon and there may even be more struggles along the way but in the end I’m confident I will prevail.

I came across a fun little poem that reminds me why smiling is so important.

Smiling is infectious,
You catch it like the flu,
When someone smiled at me today,
I started smiling too.

I passed around the corner,
And someone saw my grin,
When he smiled I realized,
I'd passed it on to him.

I thought about that smile,
Then realized its worth,
A single smile, just like mine,
Could travel round the earth.

So, if you feel a smile begin,
Don't leave it undetected.
Let's start an epidemic quick,
And get the world infected.



  1. Sweet Friend,

    I'm glad you had a "feel good" day...oh how I embrace those days :) I'm praying that many more feel good days are in the future. Continue to be good to yourself and indulge in "you". It's a bumpy road, but one that we will all walk with you. Success is in your future, I promise ;)

    Hugs as you continue to heal.


  2. I too am hoping for many more good days to come your way in the near future, cause you just deserve it!! And I know all too well how the bad days can sneak up on you, but when they do just remember we're all here to face them with you. Continuing to think of you as you go through the healing process. (((HUGS)))

  3. as long as you don't try and hide away from the pain. some days it's not possible to smile.

    but good days are good. and such a relief. i was cheerful on sunday! it was such a revelation, that the cheerful me still exists. even though i went bad again the very next day, i feel more hopeful than i did before.

    here's to more good days, anyway. take care xx

  4. I am happy to hear that you are having good days again. Hopefully they will come more and more.
