What made the difference between the happiness and sadness? I realized that it was a thought. It is very important to go ahead and express sadness when it hits as it is much worse to stuff an emotion but it can be a learning experience to observe what makes the difference in the thoughts that produce anger, love, hate, sadness, etc. It is a key to happiness to know that we have the power to become supremely happy by observing our thoughts and actions.

Ghosts and goblins and pumpkins too,
This is the night for witches brew.
Little ones, their eyes so bright
Await the darkness of the night
They put on their costumes fresh and new
With big smiles and NEW masks too
Then “trick or treat” from door to door
And with each treat their spirits soar
Then all too soon the time is near
For hugs and kisses and prayers to hear
And sleepy ones go up the stairs
Bedtime awaits with teddy bears.
