Instant cheering up

I was grateful for the comments on yesterday’s post, hoping that things would soon seem better. So what do I find on facebook? Photos of the Tinies: first day of school for Grandie #7 and first day of P2 for Grandie #6  The holiday one of them in typical West Coast weather is a beauty.

    Great pictures Freda. They certainly look very happy. Let’s hope it’s infectious.
    Every blessing.

    Well these photos are definitely cheering material! They look so cute in their school outfits. And the one of them on holiday is endearing. I am not sure if you are cheered up or not, but I am sure you are busting some buttons with pride. Grands are wonderful.

    What cuties! And that is certainly a good prompt for cheering up!

    Hello Freda,

    I’ve been catching up on the posts I’ve missed, starting with the one on the riots. I have no easy explanation, but would like to say that I find Cameron’s expression ‘Broken Britain’ most unhelpful. The word ‘Hopeless Britain’ describes for me the state of some sections of our country much better. Looting and smashing and rioting don’t help the hopeless youth and the have-nots, I agree, and smacks of criminality and hatred.

    It is those whom society ignores who have to brought back into the fold, who have to be shown that they too can be of value, that there is a future for them and their children.

    I don’t know how that can be done, but if something is indeed ‘broken’ it needs mending, healing, not condemning and alienating even further.

    Sorry that you had a few gremlins yourself; life really is not as cheerful as it could be, particularly in summer. (What summer?)

    Your grandchildren look happy and healthy and cheerfully well; enjoy their childhood.

    Courage, my dear. (I’m a fine one to talk, I know)

    Dear Friko, I so agree about people being helped to know that they are useful in society. It have found life hard enough this summer, and I am relatively well adjusted – how must it be for those who feel totally disillusioned?

    I love your instruction at the end of your comment – it makes me smile and somehow gives me courage in itself.
