A quote of the day – my own

I always post a quote each day, well most days, on my Facebook page. Today, instead of using someone else’s, I posted one of my own. It began as I was looking at my ever growing list of to do’s, knowing that I would never accomplish them all today when I began to wonder how I would describe a “successful” day.  It certainly wasn’t going to have anything to do with my list being completed; I couldn’t seem to focus.  After a monumental amount of thought, I came up with my own quote of the day, which I thought I would share with you. “If I have really laughed, I mean really, really laughed, a laugh that filled a portion of my heart and left me smiling, then I will consider my day to have been successful.” I always considered my days to be “successful” if my list was complete but as time has gone by, I now consider a day with laughter to be “successful.” I know that if I have laughed, really laughed, during the day, then that means that there were a few minutes where I didn’t think of and miss my daughters. There were a few moments where the pain of separation was momentarily forgotten. – See more at: http://mylife-in-stories.blogspot.com/2010_01_01_archive.html#sthash.b2IgYywy.dpuf
