Happy/Sad

Happy/sad. I have referenced that phrase several times lately. Because that is how many of my days lately have been. Don’t be worried. It is not a cry for help, or a sign that I am depressed. As a writer, I enjoy the feeling of happy/sad, as it helps me feel more, experience more, empathize more.

What is happy/sad? Here is my not so exhaustive list, from movie quotes, to songs, to experiences.

-“Your problem is that you’re not happy being sad. But that’s what love is – happy sad.” (Sing Street, 2016)

-The feeling I get listening to “Auld Lang Syne.”

-Watching my husband drive off to work, missing him the minute he leaves, but loving the fact that I love him so much.

-Watching my children grow up into adults, missing those little child hugs, but enjoying our new adult conversations.

-Memories of my dad, now that he resides in heaven. The best of dads, missing him to tears, but so happy because I know we will see each other again.

-Seeing the leaves fall from the trees, the beauty of the colors tinged with the sadness of the bare trees. But knowing that spring will come.

-Remembrances of Christmases gone by, the special doll, the new bicycle. Knowing new memories are being made, every minute, even still. Happy/sad.

I know you all can add to this list, and I would love to hear your happy/sad things. Please comment below. Enjoy all the moments…..happy, sad, and in between. Relish them all. Live and love your life.

Love, Lisa

Here is a great version of “Auld Lang Syne” by Keith Harkin to enjoy.

Good Morning

“Do you wish me a good morning,
or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not;
or that you feel good this morning;
or that it is a morning to be good on?”
~Gandalf, The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien
You and I can ponder on this for a while, or maybe not, or maybe just for a brief moment.  Whatever path your feet are upon today, may God smooth your way.  Slainte, Lisa
