IN PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS~

How sad is the person whose hunger is never sated, whose thirst cannot be quenched and whose longing is eternal. To be able to move forward without tainting your memories with regret is a blessing. To be happy, to be satisfied and content with what you have is a gift far greater than the temptation of ambition. A simple life is all I ever wanted and it was what I have achieved. 

I am happy. Are you?

I've found you! I think about you so often. We are happy down here in the country but of course there is always some kind of melodrama...I will read your back entries. I have prayed for Gabe's safety every night since the day we saw you in Colorado.

love, Kas

Even though our house was foreclosed on I'm happy. Really. New chapter. Maybe Chapter 11 but surely a new chapter!
