PdV, indeed, a lot of "little thing" can bring a smile to your face. Still, I see so many people who seem to have everything the could possibly imagine living "empty" lives...
Satiate, having you as a friend is one thing I do smile about daily. I think your list could speak for many - "God & Family"... therein lies much of what I think is missing for me.
Rebecca, a choice most definately... but's it can be a toughie!
Janet, I felt the sincerity in you reply... you need not feel inadequate to anything I've said.
L.D., This was a true family I saw when down in Honduras. I really did have to think because at the time I was vacationing with Gen, had Mikey & Christa waiting for me at home... (what more could a man want) - and yet I was SO sad inside and yet these people who "seemed" to have nothing were SO happy. It really was a call to look inside...
Claire, indeed, it starts within.
Sy, and I've been bouncin' all over lately... You speak wisely my friend.
devina, you may ditto me all you want, dear.
Wildchild, Thanks, I will see if I can come up with some dessert soon.
Marge, that is a beautiful quality you possess... to be able to give without expecting. Always, I have seen hope and happiness within you.
Mistik, I don't think it's something we have to struggle for my friend, just something we have to allow ourselves to accept.
Nan, and what if I don't like myself?...LOL
Sorry, just wanted to argue with the teacher.
Thank you all for the kind replies.
