Out to Lunch

I went out to lunch 
in Maui.
Here I am enjoying the waves.
( The Beach House)

This was a quick let's get away vacation.

The cats were being spoiled.
The dogs went to what we call puppy camp.
( a kennel where they get to play all day)

I sat in the sort of sun.
It rained a couple of days.
It followed me from my rainy woods.
I had a great time.
Enjoyed the quiet.
Played in the pools.
Got just a bit of a color.

This was my gift
for surviving my five surgeries
in under two years.

Not that I'd suggest that anyone
do what I've done but
the reward sure was fun.

I now am ready
to continue on in this
journey called life.

I was reminded what
this is all about.
I'm good for another round
of whatever is thrown at me.

Oh, and I danced a lot.
Just saying ...

You look great - happy and relaxed!

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
