We've all had those moments we swear we will never recover from. Cold. Empty. Frozen. Free of hope. Sometimes numb is so much better than pain. But you have to feel the bad to feel the good. And numb is just a purgatory stopping you from happy. We are all just seeking happy.
Happiness. Something so many adults search endlessly for. Sometimes I forget how to make it. Sometimes it feels so far away and sometimes so close, yet I can see it slipping through my fingers. It's more simple than we make it. And few things matter more than it.
Last weekend we went to the Big Fresno Fair. This year marks it's 136th year in action. It happens each October, and its two-week run featuring exhibits, a livestock show, live horse racing, concerts, educational programs and food guaranteed to clog even the cleanest arteries.
It's heaven for Greyson and Parker. Their happiness becomes mine.
Lately it's been a little harder for me to find happy. I don't know if it's due to a change in Season, or a change in brain chemicals (or both) or just because sometimes, life is so hard. But today as I review these pictures with a smile on my face, I can feel some happy.
He likes all things spinning. I sat with him and took deep breaths and prayed my venti cold brew didn't come back up.
Parker has just started liking going on rides. However, if it came down to it, I think he would pick food for his first favorite thing.
Keep your eyes on the real prize. I think it's happy. Few things matter more.
