I've a habit of placing a happy-face or a frowny-face on my calendar, depending on what kind of day I've had. ? Often I slap a droopy circle in the box, discouraged by the things I failed to accomplish and the unpleasant encounters endured. ? But then, invariably, a wise muse stops to ask me these three questions: ? Did your children let you hug them today? ? ? Did you do a kind deed for someone? ? Anyone? ? Did God forsake you today? ? Then, my dear, despite your challenges, it was a good day after all. ? And, standing corrected, ? I twist that frowny-face upside down and smile.
