I think many of us, especially me believes that if I feel pain I can never feel happiness again. I will always hold a little of the sadness in my heart but that does not mean that I will never feel amazing joy again, I will. I have had sparks of it in the past few weeks...
A Jar Of Happy Memories', I have began to fill it when ever I have a happy time that I always want to remember; I wanted to share a few with you here today, as I think this is what is helping me to move forward and I can see that even though the pain is not completely gone, I can see where I am still able to feel happy.
My beginning list is that I had a really great Christmas with Valentina, I am talking to my oldest daughter Andrea again, I was able to talk to David on both Christmas day and New Year's, right at midnight. What I see from these memories, none of them involve money, all of them involve people I am really close to and spending time with them, even if it is just on the phone... I am going to save each of these memories as they truly make me happy.
