Are you happy?

I think I am.  My husband is a good man and I have a good life. My son is growing up into a fine young man.

After he was born, it was hard for me to accept that perhaps I would be in Japan the rest of my life. I have come to terms with it. Maybe I will, maybe I won’t.  I am not even sure now that going back to America would make me happy.  I’d probably be all, “Back in Japan, they do it THIS way!  And why that?  And how come everybody does this?”  But part of me does deeply long for America.

So anyway, let’s all to reach some sort of happiness in our lives, whether we reach that by prayer or meditation or acceptance of what can not be changed.

I know I am trying!
