“The greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances.” Martha Washington
I’m taking my happiness temperature. Do I let the unpleasant things people say or do send me into a blue funk? Am I wounded with words? Is someone’s churlish attitude souring my disposition? No, no and no. I don’t play the martyr, well not for long anyway. I don’t want to waste a single moment of the time left to me wallowing in my pity or anyone else’s. I’m putting on a happy face, singing in the rain and whistling in the sunshine.
I have plenty to keep me feeling good; Bible study; crochet; meeting with friends; good books to read; a precious pet, Nick ; and a terrific family. I’m graced out. My cup is packed down and over-flowing! My temperature is normal and steady!
