It‘s been a while since I have posted a blog. There has been a LOT going on with getting ready for the big Licensing Show in Las Vegas and then some health issues with my father and my uncle. My uncle ended up passing away a few weeks ago. We are all sad but we are also happy to have had such a wonderful man as our uncle!
Losing three parents and two uncles in just a couple of years is hard. As hard as it is, I find I cannot live in a place of constant grief. I have decided to count my blessings and look for something fun in each day.
These thoughts brought me back in time to when we would watch the movie Pollyanna. Pollyanna was a cute little girl with her share of problems. She would play the GLAD game and find things to be glad about even when life was hard. It was a great movie yet people made fun of it over the years calling her a goodie two shoes. I say WAY TO GO POLLYANNA! Life is too short to crab about everything under the sun. Instead we should smile and chose to be glad!! It makes for a less toxic life.
Tomorrow is my dear uncle’s funeral. I will be glad for all the family members who are coming. We will hug and cry and remember stories. It may be a bitter sweet day but we will all be together as a family and I am sure we will find many things to be GLAD about. Thank you Pollyanna!
