Growing optimism

I have sometimes described myself as “cautiously pessimistic.” Ha. But I am an optimist at heart.

Last night, my daughter Rachel told me that she thinks I’ve grown more optimistic over the years. I sure hope she’s right!

Ran into an acquaintance at the grocery the other day who told me she couldn't imagine me feeling blue (after I'd told her that volunteer work had cheered me up--implying that I'd been less than cheery).

At first I was insulted, as if she had called me shallow.
Then I realized, hey! if someone who doesn't know me very well thinks I'm always happy, I'm *lucky*!
