If you are happy and you know it…

I found myself smiling last night.  Was it because I was driving in the car that I bought recently that I feel super safe in, perhaps.  Or was it because I just finished crafting with my friend, making ornaments for our Christmas trees, possibly.  I was heading home to my home, which is my safe… Continue reading If you are happy and you know it…

Just a good day or something more?

You question what it is. Is it a really good day? The art of coming out of the dark? The fact that I’m starting to feel better? Getting joy out of existence.

Saturday night we had the pleasure of spending the afternoon and evening with just our teenage son as our daughter was at a friend’s house.  Since it was just the three of us, we were trying to decide what we wanted to do that we normally don’t do when the whole family is together.  As… Continue reading Strike!

Living for the Weekend
