What it Means to be Happy

Miracles happen. I don't want to sound cheesey, but they do. My dad is no stranger to miracles and here was another, I called home yesterday to find he'd been released from the hospital and was resting at home. I'm not sure why miracles happen. But maybe they happen to show you there's so much, so many things in this world to be happy about.

Oh that's awesome! I am feeling so hopeful today - for him, for a friend of mine who is going through some medical stuff, and just in general. Thanks so much for posting this - you have no idea what a nice spot of sunshine you provided.

And that you posted a Gene Kelly video ... honey, that just makes me love you even more. :)

XOXO

That is GREAT news! Miracles do happen. I agree with sewitsforyou - I'm sure he will recover faster at home with his loved ones around. Hospitals are not a restful place.

Have a safe and wonderful trip home. Give your dad a big hug for me!

Dear Floresita,
I am so happy to hear your dad's home and on the mend!!
(Three years ago the same thing happened to my dad. I was in a different country to him and felt very helpless...)

Todays news are fantastic!

Many happy thoughts to you and your family.

I'm so happy your dad is doing well! I was just catching up with your blog and couldn't believe it...my dad passed away 3 years ago this Sept. so I understand how scary & helpless it all seems. I just wish you and your family all the best & I am sending positive energy to all of you...

Wow! You are a trooper. I would be an absolute mess that far away from my father(to begin with!).
I can't imagine my life without my father. Nor do I want to.
He lives less than 5 minutes from me.
We've been inseparable all of my life. I'd be lost without him.
Your previous posts have made me want to call him up just to tell him, "I love you, dad."
Keep well, Flor.
Love and prayers....

Have been reading your blog for a while now -- and was so saddened to hear that your dad was ill, but now am so happy to hear that he was released from the hospital. I'm sure he's doing much better being at home, in familiar surroundings, with his loved ones. My best wishes to him, and your family. Also, I love your blog!
