A Good Life...

A good life is when you smile often, dream big,
laugh a lot and realize how blessed you are for what you have...

Sunset at the beach, also one of the most beautiful sights of the day.

Eleuthera, Bahamas was our second home for a few years.  Beautiful place.
We made memories that will last a lifetime.  Arvid, Brutus and I.

The view from our apartment at The Las Olas Grand.  The place Brutus first called home
 with us.  Brutus loved his view.  He loved watching the boats all day long.  Brutus was a 
pampered kitty.  The neighbors called him the baby.  The baby he was and always will be for me.

Looking back, I see we have had many good years with Brutus.  May not have
 been exactly as many as we wanted, but we were fortunate to have had him for 9.  Nine
 of the best years in our lives.  Brutus is dead, but the memories we have of him lives
 of forever.  This being said, I would give anything to have him back by our side.  

Remember all, live a good life.  For in the end it's not the years in a life it's the life in 
the years.  We may not have all we want, but we sure have lots to be grateful for.

Yes, no matter what, we have a good life, but right now I am also a little tired.
Tired of having people all the time "visiting"  Between the months of February, and
March we are constantly juggling our time between different friends and family
visiting.  It's nice, but also too much.  I told Arvid that next year March
 we will go away somewhere and get away from everyone.

 We are not like everyone else.We wait for us to be in Chicago.
There we are alone. I am not having the best of days lately. I guess it "shows."
 My heart aches for Brutus.  It's been too long.  Too long without him

A good life is a collection of happy moments.  The best and most beautiful things in 
the world cannot be seen or even touched.  The must be felt by the heart....
