“Optimist: someone who isn’t sure whether life is a tragedy or a comedy but is tickled silly just to be in the play.”Robert Brault

One year ago I wrote about my precious Aunt Peggy, who has survived things that might have left less optimistic people feeling bitter.  Peggy is one of those people who are tickled pink just to be in the play, and she’s still one of the leading stars in my cast of characters.  Comedy or tragedy, her timing is perfect and her spirit is one in a million.

We all need some optimists in our life, to remind us that the show must go on, and we’re lucky to be part of the production!  Who are the stars in your show?

A virtue in itself

This post was first published seven years ago today. The original post, comments and photo are linked, along with two other related posts, below. These links to related posts, and their thumbnail photos, do not appear in the blog feed; they are only visible when viewing the individual posts by clicking on each one. I have no idea why, nor do I know how they choose the related posts. That’s just the way WordPress does things.
