This is going to be such an amazing weekend. I’m blessed to be able to spend time with my favorite man, his more than welcoming family, as well as my own beautifully crazy family. As I get older I find that there are so many special moments in life that are to be remembered and savored. I treasure good times spent together more than objects. I’m still a woman though so shiny baubles will always be on my list of good things. But without a strong emotional link behind those shiny things they don’t mean much.
And if that’s just too much happy sappy crap for you, know that there will be more than enough school work mixed in during this long weekend.
Yes, the title of this post is a quote. Yes, the quote is from one of my favorite books (and movie). But is it true? In a word, yes. And being happy makes the rest of the mess of life easier. I look forward to where life takes me and this path especially.
I’m on a Polar Plunge team through school. This is such a good cause I can’t wait to help out! There will be a costume involved but you’ll only get to see it if I meet my fundraising goal. And trust me when I say that it will be worth it.
The event will be held January 25. And for those that were asking, it really does take place outside in a cold-ass Kansas lake. There’s even rules. Think you can just walk in far enough to wet your ankles? Nope! There’s a line of firefighters that make a ring and you have to give a high five before it is considered complete. One high five is all it takes. Is that good enough for my crazy team? Hell no! We’re getting a high five from every single one of those firefighters!
The funds raised go to the Special Olympics. How can you say no?

As of today my divorce is official. He didn’t change, I did, and communication failed. The end.
Have no doubts that this is a good thing.
I have a very dear friend that is going through some even harder times than myself. I don’t know if this post will be seen. I don’t know if it will help if it is seen. I know that positive thoughts sent out with good intentions can never hurt. So that is my goal. Know that you are not alone and the world will begin to have color again. It must.
