But I talked her into getting up and making the best of things. So we got dressed and shared breakfast with Neil before sending him off to work. Then, longing for a smiling face, I went into the bathroom and put on a little makeup. I was giving myself such a big smile that those old doldrums just started dropping away.
Now, with laundry in the washer, supper in the Crock Pot, and my floors all swept and mopped, I pulled out a fun library book that I've already had for three weeks but haven't used, and showed it to Little Sherry. I told her not to be sad, that we could have fun today with our book and colored pencils. And guess what? She cheered right up!

The book's pages are full of happy, bright colors!
And just look at the many fun projects we can choose from!
Everything looks rosier already.
Brilliant sun rays have dried up the fog and are beaming through the trees in my backyard.
I'm so glad I climbed out of bed this morning and decided to look at the bright side of life.
