Crazy March Madness

The month of March has been so crazy for our little family. Couple big things that happened...

2 funerals and lost 2 love ones.

My aunt Darlene who fought a glorious battle with cancer, and finally was able to leave all the pain behind, and go see our heavenly father. She will be missed dearly!! And aunty, we'll take care of uncle, and make sure he showers =^.^= and eats.

Steve's best pal, Danny, who was tragically killed in a car accident. A newborn daughter, and widow wife are in our thoughts and prayers. Life is is full of unexpected surprises, and I know our father in heaven has his plan. We might not know why everything happened the way it did, but he has a greater plan for each and every single one of us. He knows what's best for us. I know that we are here on earth to have a body and experience all things humanly possible. We are here to be tested, and we have agency to choose the way we return to our father in heaven.

Here is to Danny~! Even though in this photo you were touching my husband in places you shouldn't, I am still going to miss you.

Tell your love ones you love them every day, and any time you want to. Say it even more often than you say it now. Let them know how you feel. Don't hold grudges, forgive those who have wrong you. Most of the time, those who have wrong you have already forgotten what they have done. If you don't forgive them, then you are carrying this unnecessary burden of remembrance of what they have done wrong. You are only eating yourself away.

Happiness is a choice. Choose to be happy and positive. Life is too short to live miserably. If you don't like something in your life, don't complain! Do something about it!! If you are not going to do anything about it, then don't complain.

Find good in everything you do, and in everyone. You will be happier. I promise. Give yourself a smile, cuz you deserve it. Love yourself more every day, so you can have more love to love everyone around you.
