We do not know how cheap the seeds of happiness are or we should scatter them more often.
To speak kindly does not hurt the tongue.
These two quotes mean more to me after this past week than you could ever imagine. Life is hard, difficult, fun, and exhausting. A smile, or a kind word can mean so much to someone along the way.
Because yesterday was a lot. Too much. Doubt. Questions.
Today. Today–I am enough, unbelievably enough.
Believe. I need to believe this today.
So many of my friends and family are experiencing grief this year. This is a good reminder for me.
Last night I shared this picture:
Everyone posted asking if I was okay. The tag line was tired. Just tired. I was ready for bed, and you can see it.
Went to sleep…and got up…not tired. Still have decorations to finish for Christmas, and boxes are everywhere but:
Volunteered this morning in the Raiders concession stand. It was fun. David and Carmen came along to help as well. Our friend Ryen came as well. So nice to spend time with her and to make new friends.
Had to wear a hat…now I have hat hair but a really good day. Still tired but a nap might be in my future.
I didn’t realize I needed to be so aware of my pictures on social media. Everyone genuinely cared that posted their concern with the first picture. I think we need more of those kind of pictures, and the ones with a bit of chaos around us. It is reality. I think I need to see more of them. At least I don’t feel like I am failing at life with everyone doing all of these great things, continuous smiles and happy families. Life happens, and we all go through days of being tired.
Behind today…not feeling well.
Nope raccoon that David has named Rocket. Dexter found this little one outside, apparently fallen from the next. It was in the middle of the day, so we brought it inside to warm up until night fall.
We did follow the instructions as to try to get her back to her Mom. We also knew not to feed or give the any water. David found out that warming uncooked rice in a sock for 30 seconds in a microwave would keep them warm for a longer period of time.
Abby was not happy about the little one in the house at all.
So it turned out that Rocket was a Rosie. Mom never did come back to get them. After a long night, and lots of inside warming time, and outside for Mom to find them time. David took them to the Wildlife Refuge on first thing Monday morning.
David contacted the refuge on Thursday morning to check on them. Rocket ended up passing after a couple of hours after David had dropped them off. But Rosie is thriving! Our hearts are both happy and sad.
I have been overwhelmed by business (anxiety) lately, so I apologize for this simple post.
Smile. Be nice today. You never know what the other person is going through, and you could be the one person who is kind to them today.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
