A brief rant, and some Joy

I've decided that growing up, we must have been lucky to survive to adulthood.  Some of the people I'm around today, seriously, get a life.  You are 21 years old, life isn't always neat and pretty.  People aren't always nice. Things don't always go your way.  Grow up and get on with it. 
This rant was brought to you by the evil stepmother. Thank you for your understanding!

Okay, now that I have that out of the way, carry on.  I love spring, and I'm so glad that everything is blooming.  Lilacs!!  Woo hoo, everywhere.  I have such great friends, and have "met" some fabulous internet people.  God is good, and Joy is where we look for it.  I love this saying, "Joy is always a function of gratitude and gratitude is always a function of perspective.  If we are going to change our lives, what we're going to have to change is the way we see." Ann Voskamp

I'm going to be purposeful today in seeing Joy.  I hope you have some visible to you as well.


  1. I was trying to tell Tyler that very thing last night, that you can't control what happens to you, but you can control how you choose to view it and how you react to it.

    Love Spring! And it came so early this year!

  2. This is one of my constant struggle--controlling how I react to the things that happen to me. That and not worrying about tomorrow. Boy--I think I have a long way to go. I wasn't like this when I was 21--I already had 2.5 babies and was happy as a lark. Didn't worry about a thing and was peaceful and placid. Wish I could recapture that feeling. Onward and upward !!
