It's true isn't it? Even with all it's ups and downs, life is still brilliant, breathtaking, beautiful. I have to admit, in many ways, I am a glass is half-empty kinda gal. It's all too easy for me to notice the less-than-shiny sides of life. But right now, in the midst of a lush and vibrant Kootenay spring. At the end of a rewarding and enlightening teaching practicum, and just days away from reuniting with my husband, my cat and my dog :) I am feeling uncharacteristically optimistic. Life can be hard. But it is good. Of this, I am firmly convinced.
