Be Happy

Be happy. 

Sounds like something my mama would say to me right now. Lord knows she had a litany of Be-sayings for my brother and me. Be good. Be nice. Be gentle. 

I keep looking at my life and, like most of us, I keep finding the faulty bits. But today I spent a quiet day writing. I also spent the day focusing on the here and now. With the help of a few feathered friends.

I’m sure if my mama was still here, she’d remind me to Be Happy.
