The young child released her beautiful bundle of balloons, gleefully expectant of their rise into the blue skies, only to have branches of a tree take hold the colorful array.

  1. Life is not always as beautiful as we expect. We must learn that life itself is not promised, nor is good health, or beauty and happiness. It’s sad when a child release balloons to sail into the sky and beyond, only to find them trapped in tree branches. But despite the setbacks, life is good to those that get “knocked down” but get up once again to face life and it’s events with a positive attitude and happy thoughts.
