Life is Just a Bowl of Roses!

Life is Just a Bowl of Roses
"Rose Colored Glasses are never made in bifocals. Nobody wants to read the small print in dreams."
~Ann Landers~
Despite the harsh realities of life, of which I am well aware, I do believe we all need those rose colored glasses at times to see life in a softer light! Do you remember as a child being told to, stop day dreaming? Get with the program! Get your head out of the sand! Wake up and smell the coffee! You can't have your cake and eat it too! Life is not a bowl of cherries! You are such a Pollyanna! Blah, Blah, Blah!
Well folks I have to tell you as an adult, I want my cake and I want to eat it too! I love to wake up and smell the coffee! Sometimes my head needs to be in the sand by choice, there are some things I really don't want to know! I love to day dream, some of my best ideas have been born in this space! Whose program was I ever supposed to get with anyway??? 
As far as cherries go, just don't digest the pits! Pollyanna, has now been upgraded to 
Polly-Nanna, a title I wear with pride!
With all the negative rubbish that floats our way on a daily basis we need to wear rose colored glasses to keep visions of sugarplums, puppies, rainbows and dreams, coming our way! 
It is our right to be happy and it is our choice, whether to sleep on a bed of roses or a bed of nails! Rose colored glasses come in all sizes and strengths, I suggest you try a pair!

Awesome post, Rosemary. I agree there are times when I just want to shut my eyes and my mouth and let others deal with whatever drama is going around.

Love your photos and your words. :)

Rosemary,
You are a wise soul. I loved reading this post and the roses are so pretty in their unusual display.
I think the Dollartree has rose colored sun glasses. wouldn't hurt to try a pair.
