Who Have You Helped Today?

Who Have You Helped Today?

I haven’t always been interested in the well being of other people, I mean not to a point of making it an intentional part of my day. I wonder why it sometimes takes cancer, or a tragedy to help us understand the worth of every […]

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 ask […]

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 […]

Make Time

In my life I have spent way too much time worrying about what other people think. When I finally decided that was a waste of my time I realized ‘those’ people are no longer in my life anyway. Time changes all things, we think when […]

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

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 […]
