I am dad sitting today and he is watching Harvey. It's such a cute movie. I have always been a fan of Mr. James (Jimmy) Stewart. I find him charming. Much how my granddad was. Very charming and sweet. I am sitting in the living playing on Pinterest as Dad is watching and this quote really struck me.
This past week has been a whirlwind of emotions for me. One of my best friends is dying. As I write this she may have already passed. She will never be forgotten. She is one of those people who is the epitome of pleasantness, she brought happiness and sunshine to everyone.
While I was visiting her to say our final goodbyes, my brother was being threatened with a gun. I don't want to go into all that, as my brother would say, it's none of my business. But here's what's come out of that situation: my brothers, both of them are going to get the help they have needed for years. Both of them suffer from depression. My mother has finally decided to hear them speak of their childhoods and their hearts. I think we need to release the hurtb inside, so we can grow and move on.
I hope that both of my brothers realize that being pleasant is far greater than being smart or right.
May we all choose to be pleasant and bring sunshine to a dark world.
