Life Lessons

Why is it that there is so much good in the world, yet our news media and our own personal conversations tend to be focused on things that are bad, ugly?  My mom used to say, many, many times,  "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all."  Of course it wasn't original to Mom, but it sticks in my mind because she said it.  My mom had so much wisdom to share, and even better, she lived what she talked.  The best thing I remember about my mom was her smile, and I marvel today how she could be happy no matter how she felt, and she could spread that happiness around.
Some friends & relatives posted this on their facebook page today, and it hit a strong note with me:
An old man once said,
 "There comes a time in your life
when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it.
You surround yourself with people who make you laugh.
Forget the bad, and focus on the good.
Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't.
Life is too short to be anything but happy.
Falling down is a part of life;
Getting back up is living."
