Miss you…

There was this great man I used to know. He had this amazing energy that could fill up an entire room, no matter how big. He could make you feel good just by saying “Hello dear”!

He was a great story-teller. So good that you could never tell if everything was true or there were some (very small) invented parts.

He met a lot of important, famous people (like Mother Theresa and Ceausescu) and he had so many stories about them. I’m so sorry I can’t remember them all. People usually talk about his professional performances, which are impossible to ignore, by the way, but I don’t care about them. I don’t miss that part of him. I miss the part that used to touch my soul and make me feel special whenever he talked to me. I can still remember that feeling.

The first day I met him I was so nervous, wondering if I’d say the right things, do the right things… and everything was so natural. Just a pleasant afternoon spent on the porch, having some pizza and nice conversation.

There was something magic about you Harry and I miss you. I always will!

Happy

I am happy!

First of all, I am happy because I can be. I am happy to wake up every morning and see my son smile at me.

I am thankful that I can see the sun embracing the world, giving its kiss to the falling leaves, the trees, the grass, the flowers, the animals and every human being willing to accept it.

I am happy because I can pick up my son when he falls down, I can show him an apple, a banana, a wall, a tree, a dog or a table and teach him what each of them is called.

As common as it may sound, I am happy that my fridge is full and that I can put a meal on the table at least three times a day. I know many people can’t.

I am happy that we have a bed to sleep in instead of a bench and clothes to keep us warm when outside is freezing cold.

I am happy I’ve got friends I can talk to when I need to.

I am happy I can pick up the phone and call my mother, my father or my brother when I am down.

I am happy my husband’s there for me when I need him. I am happy when he comes home with a smile on his face.

I am happy because it is up to me to be happy – with myself and with my life.

There are so many reasons to be happy, so many reasons to choose happiness over sorrow. Sometimes people just don’t realize that it is up to them to wake up one morning and decide they want to be happy!

This is what I have done. I’ve chosen to be happy for everything I have. Yes, there are many more things I want, but I am not unhappy just because I don’t have them yet.

Sometimes, or maybe always, happiness is a matter of choice. It is up to us to choose to be happy… or not.
