Ah, beautiful Nebraska sunsets. Did you know that sometimes, the light reflects and you see pink clouds? That makes me think about the addage concerning rose colored glasses. And, this quote by Buddha.


It also reminds me of how we create our own happiness…or misery. If you think happy, you can be happy. If you think you can, you will. 

Hmm, remember the little engine that could? 

I think I can, and I think you can.

I tell this to my children on a regular basis…BELIEVE. Believe in yourself and your abilities. Believe in your dreams. Believe in the positive.

You are in control– with or without the rose colored glasses.

Ok, this is a really involved quote. What do you think of?

Dotti Gramke

Dotti was born and raised in Southwest Wyoming and moved to Nebraska after falling head-over-heels for a Nebraska boy in college; and married him. She is the mother of two beautiful girls. In the past, Dotti has worked as a reporter for two different Nebraska newspapers, as well as a freelance writer. She is an active photographer, and her art was shown in a gallery in Wyoming, in a display of Nebraska Photographers at the Hastings Museum and as the feature artist at the Minden Opera House. If you don't see her with her camera or her family, you might find Dotti at home--chasing chickens and cows.
