1)Decide to Be Happy 2) For Ameican Friends

Hi, Friends, Christmas is just around the corner. Have you finished up shopping? 

The news from Connecticut tore my heart, too. I lost word. Language is too cheap to say something ..., but I keep praying for you with all my heart. I'd send my condolences and prayers for all American friends and involved people.
These days, I'm sending cards. In cards or emails, I quote the favorite poem "Decide to Be Happy" written by Robert Muller (1923-2010, Assistant Secretary General to UN). 
I'd live like this poem.
>>>>
Decide to be happy
Render others happy
Proclaim your joy
Love passionately your miraculous life
Do not listen to promises
Do not wait for a better world
Be grateful for every moment of life
Switch on and keep on the positive buttons in yourself, 
those marked
optimism,
serenity,
confidence,
positive thinking,
love
Pray and thank God every day
Meditate - smile - laugh
whistle - sing - dance
Look with fascination at everything
Fill your lungs and heart with liberty
Be yourself fully and immensely
Act like a King or Queen unto Death
Feel God in your body, mind, heart, and soul
and be convinced of eternal life and resurrection.
>>>
A dear friend gave me this poem ages ago. The poem always stayed with me at a tough time.
Today, people often call me, "a happy person" on streets.
Yes, I always laugh, smile, dance, sing, whistle, while sketching, even though I have the difficulty in moving and an ongoing medical treatment. I always sketch anyone. Oh, in my eyes, everyone is so precious and beautiful. 
I heartily hope 2013 will be a wonderful year for you, readers. 


... and lastly, Friends, Happy Painting!

  1. A lovely poem to share, Sadami, as are the watercolor sketches today. We are all grieving for those lost in the CT shooting. Such senseless horror for so many families to bear right now :(

  12. I think we are all feeling the same about the events in Newtown! Awful, dreadful, devastating - who could not be effected by it. Love the poem too Sadami, we can all keep that with us. Good to know you are sketching so much and enjoying it...we love seeing your drawings. Do have a very Merry Christmas and wishing you a very Happy New Year.
