The sun sets on another day...

Tonight as the sun set I watched with fevered thoughts about the day. The sunrise was amazing and the day became increasingly positive. I worked hard to make a few people smile, for no other reason than they needed to smile. It was a good day.

As I spoke to one person I found that they were having surgery in just a few days. Not just any surgery, heart surgery, and as we talked I realized how scared they truly were with what they were facing. It was a sad moment, but I told them it would be OK, and told a story of my own. they pinky promised to make certain I would know they were OK. I left a card, and enjoyed a lunch. I hope they felt better, but at least they laughed.

Being positive in a negative situation is hard. Being sick when you want to be well, or dealing with potential tragedy is more than difficult. In reality, we all have the opportunity to overcome, not just the situation but our thoughts about the situation. Although it is often as bad as we think, the worry does nothing but keep us from enjoying any moments. As long as our hearts beat we should hold on to hope, and to happiness, for every moment that we can. Happiness is more than just a thought process, it is a way of life we can live every instant of every day. 

So as the sun sets on another day, take a moment, say a prayer, and pray hearts keep beating and we enjoy happiness as we all should, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live it each and every day...
