Happy Sunday, Journeyer! This past week has been a combination of everything. Excitement! Fear. Flu-like symptoms. Friendship. Learning. Love. Laughter. Reading. Sadness. Worry about loved ones who ran into some difficult times.  Writing. Strange as it might sound, my week hasn’t felt like the roller-coaster ride you might think after reading this list above! It’s a good thing because some …

Happy Sunday-Monday, Journeyer!! This morning I woke up ruminating on all kinds of problems. Some people can’t fall asleep at night because they can’t seem to shut their minds off. I used to have the problem and then, out of a sense of desperation, I began doing what I later learned was a form of self-hypnosis. More than ten years …

Happy Monday-Tuesday,Journeyer! As I type this week’s Happy Happens column, I am aboard Delta flight 3674 headed from Charlotte to Detroit, where I’ll board another plane for my final destination. Home. Typing that word I am reminded of a phrase I often use: “Home is where I am.” I don’t use the expression “Home is where my heart is” as …

Happy Sunday, Journeyer! Today I come to you from atop a mountain that overlooks the beautiful Lake Michigan.

As I prepared for my family’s July 4th celebration, I couldn’t help but think about some of the events and threads that comprise our freedom. Our freedom, for all of us who live in countries that afford us the privilege of choosing our own daily course of actions, was born on the backs and of the bloodshed of too many to …

At the Intersection of Family and Growth

Annah Elizabeth Happy Happens ™, Relationships, Spirituality Leave a Comment

Happy Sunday-Monday, Journeyer! You know how it is when family comes to visit? Your schedule goes all sorts of wonky. Your floors somehow manage to accumulate dirt and dog hair (if there are pets involved) at the speed of sound. Your kitchen counters are cluttered with the extra items that won’t fit in the fridge or the pantry. And speaking …
