December 28th..

One small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day...

Tropical warm days here in Florida.  Most beautiful time of the year and we are 
fortunate to call it home.  I know that many look forward to coming and spending some of
their coldest months here.  Can't blame them.  It is definitely Paradise especially in winter.

The first thing visitors do when they come to Florida is to post a picture of the palm 
trees and beach.  Who can fault them?  I would do the same.  It is definitely Paradise.

Living here we sometimes get comfy and take it for granted, but then we are reminded
 by friends and family of how good it is.  Arvid's mother in Norway was just
 telling him yesterday how it was starting to snow by her. Yikes.  Cold

Arvid is from Norway, but he hates the cold.  Guess I can't blame him.  The other day 
a friend asked him if he was not going home (Norway) this year for Christmas.  
He looked at the friend and said, "I am home.  Florida is where I belong.  When 
we go to Norway we are just visiting."  Yes the warm climate is for us.

December 28th... Just a few more days until 2015 is history.  Wishing you all the very best 
for the remaining of this year and may 2016 be one very memorable year in only 
good ways.  Arvid, Shadow and I will bring in the New Year quietly.

  An entire year will soon begin without our Brutus.  My tears are less everyday.  
There is just sadness in my heart and I am slowly accepting that my Brutus is dead, and
 that no matter what he is never coming back home.  Do I miss him?  Everyday.

Good morning everyone.  May this day be a good one for all  of us.

Positive thinking isn't about expecting the best to happen every time, 
but accepting that whatever happens is the best for this moment...
