FWF Unity/ Adventures in Happiness

"Gray Skies Are Just Clouds Passing By."
- Duke Ellington
I know that life always throws us curve balls. Everyone has burdens to carry. Some large, some small. These are the things of life that make us who we are. We have a choice. We can choose to let those things shape us into positively driven individuals or let them break us. I have to be honest to say that I have let those experiences do both, however my determination to focus on the potential of the future, along with faith, helps me to know that I do have a happy life. I am blessed. I hope that you are able to find those blessings in your life, especially if you are going through difficult times, to forge ahead with confidence that life can be a happy place for you.

...oh, and if you don't like staples used on cards you better just move along! 
I can never get that darn ribbon to stick, so what better way than driving an office supply through it. lol!
