These are all beautiful! Love the painting, too. I think my favorite was
"sunshine in your heart
amidst an overcast sky
keep your light glowing"

Attitude can make all the difference!

Did you do the painting as well as the haikus? The Haikus were dazzling and the painting was fanciful. Great work!

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.


"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino


If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
