These days I am getting older and crankier. It’s a new year; I will probably still get crankier. Sorry! I am trying not to be that way so I came up with a list of 5 things to share.
#1. Work. I am totally bored most of the time at work. But at least I have healthcare and a paycheck. We have a house and a farmplace. We wouldn’t have that without work. I would probably be dead without work since my insurance paid for all my cancer treatments.
#2 Friends and family. The times we share can’t be measured in quantifiable ways…
#3. Even in bad times there is beauty. I learned so much going through cancer and also through floods. The kindness of others is amazing and the beauty of nature is never ending.
#4. Have fun whenever you can! Don’t let the child in you grow old! Build a snowman! Make a sandcastle, or just skip stones into the lake or river!
#5. Always look forward to the next day even if the days before were not so great. You never know what the next day will bring. Look for the beauty and joy, and you will see it!
