Be Cheerful...

What a difference a day makes. Yesterday I was feeling blue, gloomy, down. It was sunny and gorgeous in the 60's here but even that didn't shake it loose.

Today it is cloudy and gloomy but I am smiling. I have lots of reasons to smile today. Special K (my man) has an interview today. He is in such high spirits and so positive about this opportunity and it is contagious. Your comments yesterday (Brynn and Marie) really cheered me. Thank you! Yesterday I had a great phone conversation with my friend Kelly in Minnesota as well.

I thought today would be warm like yesterday so I shaved my legs and put on capri pants, I painted my toes and put on sandals. I took off for the library to see my darling friend Hal and grab some books and it was only 45 degrees out! Chilly but still a hint of spring in the air. My daffodils and tulips have started to poke through the earth. I can't wait until they are in bloom! My friend Julie sent me an email today telling me to turn off the news, close the newspaper and listen to this song!! I love it. You can't help but smile when you watch this video!

The Red Sox have their first Spring Training game tonight! Wish I was in Florida but I'll be watching it on TV instead. Can't wait!

Here are some quotes for you today:

I'm not happy, I'm cheerful. There's a difference. A happy woman has no cares at all. A cheerful woman has cares but has learned how to deal with them.

Beverly Sills


Even if we can't be happy, we must always be cheerful.
