Happiness Anyone? Over Here Please.

 “The happiest of people don’t necessarily
have the best of everything;
they just make the most of everything they have.”

These words were the final affirmation summing up a number of wise sounding observations posted to a traveling email that found its way to my desk today. These same words left my mother’s lips nearly every day of my young life as though to make sure that I never forgot. Rescued by my great Aunt Sadie Hannah Marie Oakes Broom and her husband Horace Dixie Broom from abandonment in a day nursery by a mentally ill, alcoholic nightclub singer known on stage those days as Esther Mae Gettings, I would indeed never forget. Today is the best day of my life. Knowing it makes it so.
