Keep your face always toward the sunshine, and the shadows will fall behind you.
~Walt Whitman

     So, this month has been a little bit of a disappointment.  We had our hearts set on a cute little house, and since it was a short sale, we waited quite a long time for the bank to move on it.  Well, the bank moved on it all right--they foreclosed on the property last week.  Needless to say, we're bummed.  Everyone who knows about real estate will tell you this is a common occurrence, but that doesn't mean that our feelings aren't valid.  Talk about a frustrating waste of time :(
     With the cooler weather setting in, I think we are just going to take a break from looking for a home for a while.  I am excited about saving even more money, and starting fresh in the Spring.  I also refuse to be sad.  There is a great house out there for us, I just know it!
     I love the quote above.  Isn't it a conscious decision to be happy?  You have to turn your face to the sunshine.  You have to get up in the morning, and DECIDE to have a good day.  I'm actually proud of my ability to do this.  I enjoy my life, I understand that bad things happen to good people, I live in the moment, and I look to the future for the good things to come.  

Choose to be happy today.

Sorry that the house didn't work out, but so glad that you are turning your face toward the sun!
