Prom Night -- Improved
I'm working on my young adult novel. About prom. It seems no one had a great prom night (according to my readers) but if you did, feel free to share. If you didn't, you can relive a happy one in my book. Mine sucked too incidentally. One thing I noticed at my high school reunion is that I was a happy camper in high school. Always happy, always dancing around, giggling, just lighthearted. My son's teacher told me this about him too, "that kid is always happy, always smiling and laughing."
Somewhere, I guess when I started to get sicker with MS, I started to get a little more down, but one ride in my convertible, with music blaring and I was happy again. But I can't afford a convertible now. Too many moves has put us right where most people are in this economy, but you know, I need a lot less to be happy now. In high school, I had nothing and that didn't stop me.
I mean, yeah, the economy sucks, and the world is a bit shaky. But I can't do anything about that anyway, so I choose happiness! In fact, last night my son told me to act my age. That is a TOTAL compliment. I don't ever want to be my age because that would be depressing.
So what are you doing in tough times to remember that you are blessed beyond measure and that God is good?
