Dear Diary

He glanced at me with a frown. "And what are you joyful about?"

"The sun is out and I feel no pain," I replied with a grin.

"So?"

"The flowers smiled at me, there's food in the fridge and I have no doctor appointments."

"What's the big deal?" He gave me a frustrated look.

"I'm alive and earth wants to hire me cause i'm grateful to be here."

"Then go, I have too much work to do, don't have time to be thankful for anything," he said.

Earth is hiring, apply now, he's not asking for much of your time. All he wants is for you to heal your soul with laughter, a simple smile or sweet gesture with nature, friends or family.


THE BEGINNING

The beginning is sweet
Like the first taste of strawberry sherbet
On a hot summer day
You can’t get enough
You want more to savor the palate

The beginning is a battlefield of rain and sun
Unpredictable
He turns it into a merry-go-round with his tongue
You contemplate the possibility
Of opening your heart without bleeding
Wondering if he will be the first Knight
To rescue you out of Brooklyn with his
Mighty sword

Hey Girl!

I'm ALWAYS smiling.... people think I'm phony because there's no way someone can always be happy.

Well you know what? I have so many damn things to be happy about that I better have a smile on, because God can make changes in your life with a SNAP!

Then I'd be wishing I smiled more when I had things to smile about!

Just had to stop back in & let you know I had a Google melt-down. I got falsely ID'd as a spammer and Google yanked ALL my accounts - gmail, igoogle, google analytics, and both my blogs! Yep, Free Spirit is gonzo. :(

So but they can't keep me down for long - I've purchased my own domain and have a new blog up now. Stop by & visit?
