365 Days of Happiness (184/365)

This time in Florida is a gift.  Sure, it’s not h.o.m.e.  Well, it’s not our home.  We are guests.  Trying to be the best guests we can — both succeeding and failing on a daily basis, I am sure!  But I wouldn’t trade this time with my mother — for anything.


We do simple things.  Simple things that I will treasure forever.

I snapped this picture a few days ago, while my mom was eating her lunch – after she came home from getting her hair done.  See her smile?  That’s my mom.  When I close my eyes — no matter how many miles away I go — she is with me — with that amazing smile.  And her marvelous laugh.  And her naughty sense of humor.   And that sparkle in her eyes.  And her words of love for me.   Priceless.  I spend every day of my time here in Florida — listening to my mom tell me her stories.  [Even the repeats!] …. enjoying her laugh…..adoring her smile…..lapping up the time.

Time.   Life’s greatest gift.  Remember to spend it well.

I love you mom.  #ChooseHappiness365 (184/365)

Ciao for now…..your little girl, Diane
