Life! (Photo Friday)



“So Columbus said, somebody show me

      the sunset and somebody did 

      and he set sail for it,


And he discovered America and they

      put him in jail for it,

      and the fetters gave him welts,

And they named America after

    somebody else.”

                 Ogden Nash








 

 There are times in everyone’s life where they find it very hard to see the bright side. I think we all have had those times.
 I will not pretend to understand what everyone is going through, and I know everyone is going through something, be it now, or later.
 The only thing I do know is
 The Sun always comes up.
 The Sun always goes down.
 Even in those times, we cannot see it for the clouds.
 It has always had the ability to make me see the bright side of my life, and I always seem to smile.

  5. Yep, life keeps rolling along, whether we are happy or sad. I try to look at the bright side of things, but I don't always succeed. And that's okay. :)

  9. I have learned everything happens for a reason. It may take us years to see the big picture, but it is true. I love your photos. Especially the first two. Thank you for sharing the photos and the saying. I'm having a stressful week and you reminded me to just take one day at a time.
