Being Happy - and Grateful

Friday, March 20, 2020

One of the last things Mom said to me was,
"LIve" and "BE HAPPY "

I am taking that as a directive - a command.

Fortunately, there is a lot in my life to be happy about.

So, even though I have said good-bye to my mother,
and I am feeling sad...

I am focusing each day on those things that make me feel happy.

I am savoring the good in life...

Today, I am feeling especially grateful for all the modern technology that is keeping me connected to my friends and family during this time of physical isolation.

-- I can access news sites online to see the latest developments about the coronavirus.

-- I can daily read many Face Book entries from my local friends, keeping me informed about what is happening around the community.

-- I set up a photography challenge on the private Face Book page for our photo club, so we could all participate and share online.

--Just this morning we had a Face Time visit with my son and grandson who live in NY.

--We also talked on the phone with my son who lives in California.

--I received a text message from my niece about the eulogy for my mother.

--And I exchanged email with my brother who is living in my mother's house and in the process of buying it now.

--I have participated in some church services that are being streamed live online.

And I see that new websites are popping up to enable communication between specialized groups. Our local library is streaming storytelling time online by the children's librarian.

And.. I have my regular online community of SP friends with whom to share these crazy times.

Wishing you all safety and good health. emoticon
