Happiness


Happiness is a state of mind
An attitude of gratitude
Free of unrealistic expectations
Life can be full of delights
Even opposition leads to new growth
Contemplation calms any problem
Optimism grows in grateful soil
The resulting blooms can last forever
I'm grateful for love in my life
and the promise of a forever family

Great poem and so true. I have to thank you Lin. You never fail to comment on my blog posts. I have the feeling that some of my nature posts may not be where your interests lie, but you always comment. I really appreciate that....Michelle
