I Am Just Happy To Be Alive
I know that sounds pretty simple
Well it may be simplistic
Our bodies are extremely complex and amazing
Thinking without our heart beating we are done
Then all the other things that could go wrong
With one nasty cut, we could bleed to death?
If we are at the wrong temperature too hot or too cold we could also die
Well just a few quick thoughts that came to my mind
On a greater note
What about our amazing minds?
That thinks all the time
It never stops
Even when we are asleep
Our body gets exhausted and we need rest
We have to eat on a regular basis
Exercise to keep our body in better health
There are so many points to consider
Each makes my head swim
The weather is still too cold here for that
So I just will thank God or anyone who is responsible
For making it all work
I know sometimes I have trouble keeping my car running properly
Even when I bring it for regular oil changes and maintenance all the time
I am glad cars aren't like people
Because if they were
I wouldn't want a lemon

Gypsy Rose Lee We have all dealt with many situations during our lifetime. We have to hang tough through the worst times to get to the best times. There is sometimes no rhyme or reason. If we pull it together we can see it all work out. It is not easy. You might want to consider a little furry friend. It can change the way you see things. You have companionship and also a bond. Sometimes you might need a break and talk with friends. Life can't be all work. There has to be a balance. Work by itself won't make everything right. You have done so much in a short time. Take care of yourself and things will change. I feel bad about the things you are going through. Anytime you want to text I am here. There are so many things that go wrong from day to day. If we see the great things that come out of it. We can see so much beauty and joy. Nobody can find happiness except you. I hope things are better and go lightly on the keyboard you don't want to break it.(lol) Have a lovely Monday. Take a nice walk and write all about it. It is easy to get in our own heads and forget how much we have done and accomplished. Take it slow. One day at a time.

I had a 5-day break due to burn out, Just too much to think about and now I am ready to continue writing online, Just could not move forward and now I wish I already had a little furry face to share all of this with, Other than that I wish you a great new week and I'll be here pounding away on the keyboard,

Lorna Lamon Life is filled with so many variations of each. I try to do what you do because it not only works but it is truly wonderful. The sun is shining with a nice breeze. I really don't want to leave. Off to work and another good day under my belt.
