Some Days Are Much Better Than Others


It All Depends

For me, it is the people I talk too

It can either make me or break me

I am all about being and staying happy

There can be a fine line

We sometimes cross

We don't mean too

It happens in a blink of an eye

Slowly, we can find our way back

To not just one smile

But a series that continues like glasses in your kitchen cabnet

If you see one you know there is another

Then row after row

I can't be the only one who notices

Glasses in a cabinet serve a purpose

Anyone can use them at any time

They make drinking everything so much fun

Without them, it would be pretty hard

People everywhere have all different types of glasses

Some people even have their own special glass

Off-limits to the rest of the family

They come in all different sizes

Juice glasses to big tall long thin ones

All different designs and patterns

I am blessed to have the most beautiful friends

Who not only are there when I am sad

But are there to talk to anytime of the day

Carolann and mom this is all about you

Two special friends who I am so proud to say

You make my day

Peggy Woods I was very close to my mother and I often think back to all the wonderful and crazy things we did. When I see other people with the same connection I am overjoyed with happiness. In a world where anything can happen friends make it so much nicer. Thank you so much for your comments. I hope your day is going well. Happy writing.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on March 21, 2021:

We all need friends like that. My mother was also my best friend. I miss her!

Ann Carr I love using analogies. I try different ways to get my point across. I don't find anything clear-cut. If I was a meatpacker I wouldn't trim the fat because it gives so much more flavor. i wouldn't last long. I can hear those famous words on the first day on the job. Your FIRED!!!!! Don't come back. Well, thank God I didn't go in that direction. There is a reason for everything. Boy, they do make great money.I use auto-correct a lot. It looks great. O.k. maybe getting ahead of myself. it is so much better than when I started. 10 days later but who is counting. Thanks with one big smile.

Chrish Canosa You once again clarified my thoughts to a t. You break down each thought and go in such great depth. Where I am wading in the water you dive right in. I couldn't of said it better. I couldn't think of it in terms you put it in in a million years. Maybe even longer. An invisible force field that only lets the good come thru the negativity stays out. I can look at the bad and anayze it under a microscope but it never becomes part of me. It is so easy to let the force field down and then people will take advantage of our good nature. Surround yourself around good friends. Don't be afraid to ask mom and dad what do you think about him or her? See what they have to say? More often they are probably right. Parents know these things. A mother and father instinct. A secret power. Parents are very protective of their young. You don't mess with a momma bear and her cubs. Thank you for reading and sharing. 11 days ago you touched my life. I still feel the effects almost like the after shocks after an earthquake. My mind goes too deep into every thought. I have been writing comments for three hours now. All reach me at a different level of consciousness. It depends on my mood, time of day. How tired I am. If I can bearly keep my eyes open and focus. I try to dig into my soul. I think somebody beat me too it. All I have left is bones.(lol) odd humor that comes and goes. Thank you so much. Keep writing and always get a second opinion. Your first impression is usually right. Don't forget to wish your mom and dad a good night.

John Hansen You are one of those people too. Even though Australia is so far away you make it to my kitchen table every day. 11 days your comment sat in front of me. I wanted to say something. The cat got my tongue. I thought what if? This was my last hub. i lost the urge to write. No desire. No interest. Like so many other thoughts that come in our head and later become just a distant memory. So I carefully thought about what will be will be. Stealing the quote from Hamlet I think. Then I realized I love it too much. I enjoy so many friendships. They are all different. They are all beautiful. All special in their own ways. It is not a winner take all. The loser go home. It is so much more. Who we are deep inside. Sometimes people hide behind their clothes and fancy words. I like to think the opposite. When I am writing I am butt naked and have nothing but my thoughts to bare. So even if I don't make a whole lot of sense most of the time. I will keep stretching the elastic before it breaks. Thank you for all that you do.I have noticed my hubbers come from your hubs. I think they are lost. I will send them back. After a good meal and maybe a little dessert. There is a good movie on they might enjoy that too. Heck if you want to stay over I have the room. A one-day stay wouldn't hurt. A week's vacation how great. Off for the year even better. See how my mind works. Give me an inch and I want to take a mile. Happy to have you in my corner. A really nice friend.Thanks till next time.

Hertha David It has been 11 days since you left this comment. I am almost sure you wrote this comment on the wrong hub. But I am keeping it anyway. I have been called many things and some aren't very nice words. Brilliant is not on the top of the list. I don't even have a category for it. It never came to mind. I got to thinking yes we all our brilliant. We have the most amazing minds that create the most incredible thoughts. We can love the world and never run out of love. I think brilliant is now my favorite word. Matter of fact I know it is. I have probably only heard that used five times in my life. Talking about Albert Einstein or one of the other greatest minds in the world. Thank you for not only commenting but my heart soar. I love ideas and creativity. Most of the time I am like an old gold miner digging day after day in search of a dream. More often than not I come home empty. Always thinking it is time to throw the hat in the ring. Then one morning I see an extra sparkle. Could it be. Yes it is. A little glimmer of gold. A glimmer of hope. Now all I see is every mountain and river filled with gold. I have the energy of five men. To go and go and go. Did I say go on. When other people stop I move on. Thanks again for refreshing my brain-computer. Sometimes plugging it in isn't enough. We have to reboot our system.

BRENDA ARLEDGE When I was small and we went on field trips with school. I remember buying a mug or a glass for my mom or dad. A special reminder of a good time. Over the years these glasses stacked one on top of the other and were symbols of fun. I didn't have a lot of money. I sure loved that we could all drink out of them. The best gift ever. Years later I gave my whole collection of glasses to a close friend. That I thought would enjoy them more . Years go bye so fast. It was 11 days since you left this comment. I have been dragging my feet lately. Maybe the winter blues. Now the first day of Spring. Let the fresh air in. We opened all the windows in our home. Getting the fresh beautiful breeze nipping at our toes. Life is funny that way. Sometimes we are on our game. Sometimes we are off our game. We still play every day. Some people think forced I like to think motivated and inspired to do all we can. I think I might do something different. i might put hub faces on all my plain glasses so I think of all my hub friends who make me happy. They help me get me out of bed in the morning and remind me to drink a glass of water right before bed. Sometimes the word nice is just perfectly placed and at the right time to do wonders. Yes, I am sure we all have special people in our life. I have all my favorite glasses lined up as far as the eyes can see. Thank you for all that you do. Have a really good day and a lovely Sunday.

Ann Carr from SW England on March 10, 2021:

What a lovely tribute to your loved ones! I love the glasses analogy; it's so apt and I would never have thought of it. I won't look at my cabinet the same way ever again - all smiles and friends in a row!

I hope you enjoy your day.


Chrish Canosa from Manila Philippines on March 10, 2021:

My emotion works in that way too. It depends on people I encounter, a great message behind those lines! We must be very careful with our words, but anyway there are different types of people like what you said. That is why I always end up with okay ; my happiness is my personal responsibility and I must build walls around it haha.

Have a wonderful day ahead!!!!

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on March 09, 2021:

What a lovely compliment to those two women, Dream On. We all need those special people who are there for us in the good times and the bad. Thank you for sharing.

Hertha David from Windhoek, Namibia on March 09, 2021:

I love the way you used glasses. Brilliant idea.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on March 09, 2021:

Nice one. We all have the special people in our life.

I guess we might have our favorite glasses too.
