Happy Acts

Thought Project

Thought Project

I’ve heard that the happiness in your life depends so much on the quality of your thoughts. I believe this is so true. For many years I was fed negative words I felt worthless and unimportant. The damage was incredibly damaging, I’ve taken the past […]

Beauty

Beauty

  Tale as old as time? Perhaps, with a few modern changes. I’ve always loved the original animated movie. Kaitlyn was obsessed with watching. She’d wake up every morning, I’d hear the pitter patter of her little feet running as fast as she could to […]

Happiness

Happiness

These are my happy shoes..I only wear them on March 20th–International Day of Happiness. My favorite day of the year. It is interesting to see reactions from people visiting our wall –Most who’ve followed my blog know how I like to people watch, today was […]

Baby Steps

Baby Steps

I watched as Weslie (my grandaughter) took the first couple of steps then fell down, the beauty of this small and simple task is what happened next–she got back up and tried again. There are so many lessons in this mundane act of learning to […]

Cubs Make History

Cubs Make History

On November 2nd 2016 the Chicago Cubs made history.  106 year’s have come and gone since the Cubbie’s won a World Series. Frenchie and I were on the edge of our seats watching the 7th game of the World Series. I told him I wonder […]

Disneyland 2016

Disneyland 2016

I had a wonderful time sharing Disneyland with Kaitlyn-Brian-Phoenix–Blake-Chloe-Wesley–and Haleigh and Scott– My legs were so heavy and in pain most of the time, but it was well worth the memories we made. I only wish Kayla-Jeremy-Recker-Ezra and Theo could have been there with us. […]

The Art Of Being Happy

The Art Of Being Happy

I’m so glad I attended the 1st Festival of Positive Education this past week.  I had to evaluate whether this would be a good idea or not, given I just had surgery and still have a drain hanging from my head.  Dr. Lettieri thought it […]

Love Yourself

Love Yourself

My body is not responding well to the skin graft. I met with Doctor Lettieri this week, we both agree I will be returning for surgery #35 on June 30th. Frenchie and I needed some time together, he has been working a lot of hours […]

Living in the Moment

Living in the Moment

Practicing living in the moment has been an intentional goal for my everyday living.  I have to  remind myself daily of the reward.  I’ve heard it takes 21 days to break a habit so I’m assuming it also takes 21 days to form a habit.Today […]
