To be completely honest, I really didn't feel like smiling today.
For a very short amount of time I thought of changing this post to a "This Made Me Cry" post.
You see, I lost something today.
It was, in fact, a paper I had been working on for school. It disappeared and can not be recovered.
Well, it is a lot more complicated than that...but that is just about the reason I didn't want to smile today.
It was a hard paper to write. One of the hardest I have ever worked on, and all five pages I had written....all those more I had to write before it was finished....all those hours I had put into it.
As I grieved over my work -that was no more- I remembered that it was not the end of the world.
Contrary to the sinking feeling in me, it was not the end of the world.
So, reconstruction shall begin.
And everything will be okay.
On an unrelated (and much happier) note.
Today feels like spring.
It is warm.
And the air no longer smells stale and dead, but alive and fresh.
Oh how wonderful.
So a happy Monday to you and yours.
