Mentally Strong People Do These Six Things

The painting is a diptych that I did a while ago.  Think I will use the container again soon and paint another still life.

And, remember to celebrate other people's successes.  Be kind (my favorite word in English language)

The Butterfly

Perhaps the butterfly is proof that you can go through a great deal of
darkness and still become something beautiful.                Beau Taplin

Over and over I find myself wanting to congratulate some parents who are teaching their children HOW to live life, and not trying to prepare the path for their child.  They are teaching how to be happy, not how to be rich.  They teach how to value what is important in life.

Have a person in one of my classes in college that has a daughter she is raising by herself.  She is an excellent parent to her teen age daughter.  And, she is on a limited budget.  My hat is off to her.

 Be Silly.

Be Fun.

Be Crazy.                      BE YOU        Because life is too short to be anything but happy.

Another Form of Growth

Had a great time with Son in Law, Chris Daley, this week end.  He drove down to see old friends and go feral pig hunting.  Love him.

Talked  about much.  Came to a conclusion that this is another way to grow:
  Become friends with people not your age.  Hang out with people whose first language is not the same as yours.  Get to know someone who doesn't come from your social class.  This is how you see the world.  This is how you GROW.
