From a reformed grump

I hated “warm puppy” posters
and “hang-in there” kittens
in my gloomy high school days,
that song “Don’t worry
be happy” during my divorce,
the catchy clap-along tune
ringing in my empty nest,
too busy chasing storm clouds
to notice when the rainbows came.

  2. Thank you for posting this! I’m certain many people can relate to the posters, hearing that song until it drives you nuts….and for people going through tough times, it can be especially hard to be surrounded by happiness…..until it starts to rub off! 🙂
