For 2017

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

PollyAnna is back . . .


Even in this so called crisis we're in - I just love life. I mean I can get down I just can't stay down. Life is far to short and precious for that.

Now look at this I received from Chet Day yesterday - an answer to many of life's problems.

"The Constitution only guarantees the American people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself." Ben Franklin wrote that!
And look what's on television tonight:

Michael J. Fox - Adventures of an Incurable Optimist!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“You have the need and the right to spend part of your life caring for your soul. It is not easy...To be a soulful person means to go against all the pervasive, prove-yourself values of our culture and instead treasure what is unique and internal and valuable in yourself and your own personal evolution.” —Jean Shinoda Bolen; psychiatrist, author (sent to me by Monica)

God has a good sense of timing.

Love,
Pollyanna, er Optimist, I mean Chatty . . .
