Hello my friends, I do hope you all have had a great day. We had rain this morning and it was really cold, but this afternoon the sun came out. It is suppose to be really sunny and warm for the next few days. Ahhh we have made peace with Mother Nature and all is balanced between us.
When I woke this morning, I was so sore from hitting golf balls yesterday. (It still was worth it) I sat in my bath to try and get rid of the chill, thank you God for my towel warmer as I used 2 large heated bath towels before I stopped shivering. As much as I wanted to crawl back into bed, I put my sweats on and went to Curves. WOW I couldn't believe how those machines got the kinks out and I was sweating when I finished. I felt so much better.
When I got home I was full of energy so I stripped my bed, did laundry, vacuumed upstairs, dusted, cleaned bathrooms and even tidied my basement. I baked a chicken and made rice and steamed vegetables for supper. When I finally sat down with a cup of green tea I was really pleased with everything I had accomplished, I think the word contented would be more suitable for how I felt.
When I was at Curves today one of the girls asked me if I was always so happy, I said most of the time. She then said doesn't anything upset you, oh yes I said there are many things that upset me and if I can do something about it, turn it around then I do, if it's not possible for me to do anything about it then I look for something good in the situation and accept it. I realized I usually can see the good or an opportunity of change when I see a challenge. (I didn't tell her this part) She went on to ask me, is there anything you don't like and without hesitating I said, "clowns". We all started laughing, of all things she didn't expect me to say clowns. I have never liked clowns, to me they are eerie, not funny. I have been this way since I was a child. She said so what do you find good about clowns and I responded not much but I see joy on some children's faces when they give a balloon to a child, which is true. I didn't tell her I also saw the fear in some children's eyes when a clown made his way towards him. I thought of our conversation tonight. I don't know why some people find joy and other's find sorrow, as we all have known sorrow and sadness. I absolutely do not judge anyone as I know those who are touched by sorrow are feeling great sadness and it's real. I do know that whatever I am, I am so blessed to cling to the joyful side of life. Now I am not a Pollyanna, though I have been called that, I do know that I can honestly see the good and feel the joy and happiness in everything in my life. I am able to let go of negativity, and I move forward quite easy through situations I have no control over. I so thank God for letting me be me, an old lady who is very happy in her own skin. Life is good people and one may have to dig deep to find the goodness when we are deep in life's many challenges but from the bottom of my heart, the good is there....one only has too look.
Thank you for letting me share my day with you all, it means so very much to me. Blogging has been a wonderful experience for me, I have met the most wonderful people and love all of you. In some way blogging connects us all. We share families, recipe's, photo's, weather, and these are just a few of our favorite things.
Oh life is so good, am off to read my favorite blogs and comments. Good Night my friends and God Bless
