ON THE BACK BURNER

April 13

I just had a lesson in happiness. It's a GreatGrandma in a red convertible, top down, with the driver being her visiting son. I actually had this epiphany when a friend honked me down as I was walking Cricket. I thought the driver needed directions, until the passenger started calling my name. I looked and it was my beautiful Great Grandmother friend. She was glowing. Her son was driving her any where that she wanted to be driven. It was early evening, the sun was setting and the breeze was warm.Her face was pure happiness. We chatted a few minutes about our matching hair color and then she was off again. It was then that I realized that she was experiencing real happiness . What she doesn't know, is that this chance meeting, seeing her so happy, actually made me happy. I guess happiness is contagious and so easily shared.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
