Someday I won’t be able to have my girl Josie living with me to brighten my every day, today is NOT that day!
Today was one of the roughest that I’ve had in a long time, until my girl Josie reminded me how much I have to be grateful for. Included in the armload of mail that she retrieved from the mailbox was a postcard for me from my favorite character Goofy. I was so surprised and tickled that Goofy sent me greetings all the way from California and then I realized that there was no stamp on it; her big bright smile gave her away and my heart was instantly overflowing with love and happiness! She bought this for me while we were on our vacation 2 months ago and was waiting for just the right time to give it to me. I believe her thoughtful gesture is what Eleanor Roosevelt had in mind when she said, “Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give.” My sweet girl must constantly be overflowing with joy because she has always put more than a good deal of thought like this into the happiness she can bring to others. There’s no better way to put things back into proper perspective than with a huge dose of happy love!
Today was just what I needed!
