Happy Monday, Journeyer! It seems that many of the things that have been feeding my happy are those that I either can’t capture with my camera or I can’t take time to stop to photo them. Even though I don’t have pictures, I do have the memories. Like all things in life, when I stop to remember those moments that …

It’s been a crazy, yet exhilarating week, Journeyer. I’ve been trying to keep up on the anthology submissions for the Grief Diaries Anthology Series, working with my web designer on a few changes and incorporating my beautiful little logo into the site! And I’ve been working on pulling together all of the materials for my upcoming workshop at the North …

The Hot & Cold of It

Happy Monday, Journeyer! As is the way with back-to-school, last week seems like a whirlwind gone by. Extra work hours trying to organize student seat assignments, assemble student rosters and pour over the data to become as familiar with the new names and faces as quickly as possible… Toss in a few counseling appointments and several writing prompts to add …

Happy Sunday, Journeyer! I have to tell you, I had no idea what I was going to write about until a few minutes ago… My week began with the long trek home from Rock Hill, SC, where I spent the Labor Day weekend helping Fave and Squirrel whip their first joint rental home into shape. One day of catching up from …

Happy Tuesday, Journeyer! I hope you had a nice holiday weekend with family and friends! I started out my week with a lunch date with Beauty. She’s twenty-one and has been doing what healthy teenagers and young adults need to do…finding herself. It’s odd how all too often the finding of oneself includes the pushing away of those that love …

Family Momentum III

LET FREEDOM RING! That is the first thing that comes to mind when I think about pulling away from Big Guy’s new home for the next four years. Let freedom ring for him. Let freedom ring for Warren and me. Don’t get me wrong. I love my children with every fiber I have, but I have always considered my role …

A few precious gems from this week that fed my happy organ… We loaded up Big Guy’s belongings and headed out on the next chapter of his life… We had a delicious night out to commemorate Big Guy’s big move… I spotted these glorious flowers at the Wegman’s  we stopped at to buy a few dorm room goodies…Aren’t the colors …

Wow, Journeyer, another week has come to an end, with a new one right on its heels! There’s a saying I’ve had many people tell me after I inquire about how they’re doing. “Every day I put my feet on the floor, is a good day.” That is sort of true, isn’t it? Believe it or not, I really don’t …

The Life

Journeyer…have you ever felt like you were living “the life?” You know the one…that expression “She’s living the life of her dreams!” or “He’s living the high life!” That’s sort of how last week presents itself when I look back at the photos and notes I jotted down for this Happy Happens column. As usual, I am short on time …

Well, Journeyer, last week’s Happy Happens edition is a bit late, but I promise I have a VERY GOOD EXCUSE. MANY GOOD EXCUSES! EXCUSES THAT ARE SO MUCH BETTER, SO MUCH MORE ORIGINAL AND CAPTIVATING THAN: My computer crashed (which it has numerous times in the last week and a half) or the one we adults say all too often: …
