Haiku My Heart–I can choose…

I can choose happy.

There is such power in that.

I can choose happy.

We had a very rainy week in Maine.

But that’s okay. We rested, read, played obnoxious games on the laptop,

had naps, walked the dog through the puddles, and were snug as a couple of bugs in our little camper in the quiet campground.

We did venture out for some shopping yesterday, when the rain let up for a few hours.

I chose this handmade pottery mug – “happy” on one side, “grumpy” on the other.

This morning, the sun came out.

I did a photo shoot, extreme bed head and all.

No matter what I did, I couldn’t pull off the “grumpy “ !

Too busy making the choice to be happy, I guess.

The bracelet David secretly bought and snuck into the bag for me at the Abacus Gallery store says it all…

“Live the Life You Love”

“Love the Life You Live”

Happy, happy Friday, Beautiful Ones !

I am feeling quite a bit of great attitude here. Glad you chose the happy. This reminds me, we do have a choice of how we view life, don't we.
Nice Hairdo :-)

No matter what, you always look so fabulous!! I adore these photos of you and the mug is fabulous!! You're so right, once you choose happy, it's hard to fake grumpy!!!

Your vacation while maybe not the beachy one you had envisioned has sounded delightful...just what a vacation should be!!

Good to choose happy.. Too bad about the rain... but at least it was a good, quiet, restful time... Isn't that the way a vacation is supposed to be anyway?

A picture is worth a whole bunch of words, My Queen! Boy, you sure have one heck of a great King there--I've said it before, but I'll say it again. You two must bless each other's socks off!

I always feel encouragement when I read about a good relationship, or when one partner gives to another--frankly, especially a man being giving--because I didn't grow up seeing this, nor have I experienced this much in life personally. So when I read things here or elsewhere about good relationships, I have a little glimmer of hope.

I am inspired too by your choosing, I choose to do the same,

Oh Kim, I didn't even notice the bed made me go back and look! All I could notice was that your grumpy face was sooo are a terrible actress!
And again, the sweet man shines. I am glad you have the love you deserve. Sounds so toasty and a buttered English muffin.
Now I am hungry.
Your fault Queenie :)

Rosie said...

Oh Kim! I have tears in my eyes from reading your post - HAPPY tears!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE you and your new mug! (You know we say "mug" in England for face, don't you? Just slang!! God, I love word-age!))
I am so Happy for you and the bangle is wonderful. It really does say it all! xoxoxo
