At the End of Our Time

At the end of our time on earth, if we have lived fully, we will not be able to say, "I was always happy". Hopefully, we will be able to say, "I have experienced a lifetime of real moments, and many of them were happy moments."
Barbara DeAneglis

I guess that I am not being realistic when I cling to the idea that I want my entire life to be happy. I suppose we can only enjoy the happy moments if we can fully appreciate them for the gifts that they are.
