Chicken Little's Clan

Some folks you talk to, Only
sunshine comes their way
While my sky is falling
...Seems like every day

They say, "Look for sunshine
Put a smile on your face
Forget about dreary glums
Don't let them in your space"

So falling skies I'll chase away
Look for sunshine instead
Went outside to find it-
Rain poured on my head!

This one made me chuckle. Helen but it also gave me pause.

I love this and I will agree with chicken little any day. People who are always telling me to be happy and not worry about anything and to look at the happy side get on my nerves. I know, I am a pessimist and I like it that way. What is there to be happy about these days? While I am writing this under the most beautiful blue sky and sunshine with an ocean breeze blowing my hair ... hmmm ... It is beautiful today, but I always worry about the future and what is happening to those less fortunate than I am and about our government and the wars and all the people who are dying everywhere for preventable reasons, about medical care that is not available or affordable .....
