I Choose To Be Happy

I choose to be happy each day no matter what blocks the sun's rays. I'll still jump, catch the train, do sun dance in the rain; and then gather today fresh flowers bouquet. I choose to be glad and be grateful, to count all my blessings, be cheerful. I may go up then under, but keep on and I ponder; it feels good to do things and be joyful . I choose to be a smile in the night, a spark in the dark that burns bright; to someone who’s down, a laughter and clown, moreover a channel of joy and delight. 11 September 2015 For Casarah's Get Happy 101 Contest

longest time friend. You've just exhibited to the highest quality exactly what I have missed in here for months. Your lines are so exciting and your words are each having that second hand of drawing me back to them again and again and again irrespective of how many times I have gone through them. Its nice to be home and you are part of the reason I have this refreshing feeling. A definite 7. Cheers!
