The best way...

The best way for a person to have happy thoughts is to count his blessings and not his cash.

No one grows old by living, only by losing interest in living!
Marie Beynon Ray

I wonder how many times we will have to hear this before it finally sinks in? My "little" brother just celebrated his birthday yesterday and talking to him on the phone and hearing how happy he was is a blessing for me. He hasn't always had the easiest life, but he indeed sounded happy and that made me happy!
