mom's saying

so, my mom is a pretty funny lady. goofy, outgoing, big hearted, and just plain silly sometimes. she has this philosophy of life that i've never heard her vocalize, but she demonstrates it on a daily basis. that philosophy can be stated in just a few words: It's easier to be happy than to be sad. not real earth shattering, but it's still one of the best philosophies i've ever come across. she's dealt with more crap and turmoil than i could or would relate to the world (that's her business). and through it all, she's a chipper camper. not ALWAYS, but then, we all have our moments. she is the quintissential half full glass personality. she forwards stuff she gets from her friends (hey mom, learn to get rid of those damned ">>" thingies. it's called cut and paste!) some of them are so saccarin that they make your teeth hurt. hey, i cut her some slack...after all, it's just mom being mom. and then she sends me the following. it is my mom from the first quote to the last, and is now officially part of my philosophy of life.

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather the plan is to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming-- WOW -- what a ride!"

thanks mom
