Happiness and joy are our natural states—just look at little kids. If they’re not in pain or immediate discomfort, they’re pretty happy. So our job is to see and let go of whatever obstacles are in the way of that natural joy of being alive.

Mighty Oak by:Kathy J Parenteau

Stand tall oh mighty oak, for all the world to see,
your strength and undying beauty forever amazes me.

Though storm clouds hover above you,
your branches span the sky,
in search of the radiant sunlight you
count on to survive.

When the winds are high and restless and
you lose a limb or two,
it only makes you stronger, we
could learn so much from you.

Though generations have come and gone
and brought about such change,
quietly you've watched them all yet still
remained the same.

I only pray God give to me the strength he's
given you,
to face each day with hope, whether
skies are black or blue,

Life on earth is truly a gift
every moment we must treasure,
it's the simple things we take for granted
that become our ultimate pleasures.

Hope the remainder of your weekend is filled with enjoyment1 And I really appreciate your stopping by...and just as important thank you for your comments and just being my friend!

Update this is the third straight day that I have fought I will be thankful when Tuesday gets here! At least it will move me to a “pro-active” status for a few days....

    When I started reading your blog, I was immediately reminded of when my girls were little. I learned so much and had so much fun seeing the world through their eyes. And then you commented about the little kids...great minds think alike. Thanks for your blogs. I so enjoy them.

    When you need strength to fight on, you give so much to the rest of us who are aching to help.
