It's the little things

Today is day 261.
Through everything I am still running.
It really is the little things that help us through the difficult times in life.

I spent the weekend finishing this blanket for S'ghetti girl.  She had been waiting a very long time.  It reminded me that it doesn't take much to make a child happy.  They want to be happy. 
Some grownups are the same way.  They want to be happy.
It doesn't take much to put a smile on their face.
I am one of those people.
It doesn't take much to make me happy.
So despite the rough road, I have been running.  Then yesterday morning I decided to take a risk. 
A leap of faith that might just make me happy.

I entered a lottery
