“Whatever you are, or whatever has happened, just be glad.”

Christian D Larson (1874-1954) wrote this in his book, Just Be Glad.

“Whatever you are, or whatever has happened, just be glad.  Be glad because you are here.  You are here in a beautiful world; and all that is beautiful may be found in this world . . . Just be glad, and you will always be glad.  You will always have better reason to be glad.  You will have more and more things to make you glad.  For great is the power of sunshine, especially human sunshine.  It can change anything, transform anything, remake anything, and cause anything to be become as beautiful as itself.  Just be glad and your fate will change; a new life will begin and a new future will dawn for you.”

Human sunshine—how true.  These past three months as I have gone through the healing process with my 90 year old mother’s broken hip—for the most part—she is human sunshine.  Most all the people who have worked with her in a skilled nursing facility are amazed by her human sunshine—her gladness, her positive attitude.  Her hip has healed and she is walking again.  I am glad and have much gratitude for her positive attitude, her human sunshine showing me what it can do.


About Marilyn

I am a "retired senior" (I've been a school librarian and library tech for a government research facility) who is now pursuing a dream of a home business sewing bags of all sorts, crafting and being the creative person I have always wanted to be. I grew up in the center of Illinois and dreamed of actually living back in the state of Colorado where I was born and lived till the age of 7. That dream came true when I met my husband of 43 years while working together in Estes Park. I am interested in alternative medicine, continuing the good health I've always had, while returning to the pre-processed food era of: eating well, losing weight, and using products that do not harm the environment, me, my family and friends. I am for labeling GMO’s, using sustainable products, organics and finding solutions to everyday problems, like colds and sore muscles, using natural remedies. I have a positive attitude that has helped through a very hard year and will bring forth a life that will be full and happy. My family is wonderful and I am a happy lady, wife, mother, and grandma.
