A Regular Day...

Struggles are required in order to survive in life, because in 
order to stand up you gotta know what falling down is like...

A new day to make it all right.  Everyday no matter what we are given the opportunity to change
 our lives, to better it and to achieve our goals.  It does not matter that we may not achieve all 
that we want, but what matters is that we give it our all and we always do our best.

A typical day for us at home looks something like this.  Boats passing by.  Arvid and I
doing man all kinds of chores.  Here you see him cleaning the pool for a friend.  He does
 not have to do it, but he likes to.  Says it keeps him on the go.  I'm there to give support,
 take the pictures, and of course do whatever miscellaneous "chores" he devises for me.

No matter what our day holds, there is always plenty of time for Sniff.  No matter how much
 I am missing my Brutus, and grieving for Shadow, there is no doubt that Sniff is a good fit with us.
  I don't want to make comparisons, but Sniff reminds us of Brutus is more ways imaginable.

Everyday we carry on with our usual lives.  No one know what anyone else carries in them.
 No one knows your heartaches.  No one knows your struggle.  That's all OK.  We all
 have our own burdens we carry with us.  I have mine, you have yours.

Does not make either of us weaker or stronger than the other.  Just makes us human,
 and with vulnerabilities.  My life is good.  I am grateful for the people in it, and for
all the goodness that part of it.  Sadness is a part of life, but so is happiness.

Hope you day has been good so far.  Yesterday I had some alone time with me
and my thoughts.  What better place to enjoy it than at the mall? A good
 cup of coffee always helps and then to end it with the movies.  I was
transported to a land where good conquers bad.  Not a bad day.

In daily life we must see that it is not happiness that makes us grateful,
but gratefulness that makes us happy.  Today may not be you day, 
but you can definitely make tomorrow your day...
