A World Turned Upside Down

Things are not always as they seem.

We’re all told that, we all know that it’s true.

And yet when we find that our world was not as it seemed we are shocked.  We are surprised.  We wonder how we got here and how we didn’t see it coming.

And then we wonder how to survive that sensation.

Intentional Happiness day comes along and we take a moment to recognize all of those things that help us survive.

Here’s what kept me going this week as I fought to find something upright in an upside down world.

Enjoying Lobster in the Chinese food

Hanging with the homemade scarecrow

The leaf pile – need I say more??

Saying “yes” to painting

The critters residing in our front flower bed

    I’m with you on the search for !!! in an upside down world. Sometimes it’s hard. And I never see those “things” coming either. And even when I do, they still surprise me.

    Here’s to surviving!
