Focusing on happiness

Today is a day that hurts, because a year ago today I experienced a heartbreaking loss. I'm trying very hard today to be positive. But it's hard. It's painful. I keep thinking that I'll get over it at some point. Hopefully some time soon, but it's not happening. I'm still hurting just as much today as I was a year ago. 

I'm trying really hard to focus on the here and now. And what's here, right in front of me on this bright morning, is a couple of cheerful little girls who are currently creating scrapbooks and Valentine's cards. They are blissfully unaware of what I'm thinking and feeling today and for that I'm happy. I can feel happiness through them. And I will. 




Their creativity makes me so happy. Their smiles warm my heart.



Their sweetness knows no bounds. They say and write "valenTIME" and I don't correct it because it's too darn cute.
