I Am Everyday People

Dearest Journeyer, Last week was a mixed bag of emotional lows and highs…times of defeat, redemption, depression, dialogue, desire, and celebration… It’s so hard to put my finger on the pulse of the past seven days, but as I scrolled through the week’s images, one thing stood out: a short clip of Sly and the Family Stones hit song, Everyday … Read More

Happy Sunday, Journeyer! I hope this week’s Happy Happy column finds you well, but if you’re in a place where you can use a little pick-me-up, may something in these words accomplish that for you. My week has been full, to say the least. Full of work and growth and continuing to expand the website so we can help more … Read More

Row, Row, Row Your Boat

Happy Sunday, Journeyer, Warren, Big Guy, and I spent most of last Sunday in a parking lot at an inlet’s edge, trying to fix a broken boot on our boat. We’d made plans for a Memorial Day outing with Beauty and her beau, and the boat had been the day’s major attraction. Upon discovering that the repair had ruptured during the … Read More

Happy Sunday, Journeyer! As I looked scrolled through my iPhone camera roll and the pages of my day planner, there wasn’t a whole lot of “happy” images and messages that jumped out at me. I’m still battling this cough and cold. But I feel eight percent better than I did last week. Recovery makes me happy. I am tired all … Read More

Full Spring Ahead

Happy Sunday, Journeyer, I’ve been in a funk all day long, gorging myself on brownie bites topped with over-sized dollops of Jiffy peanut butter. Does it get any better than comfort food? Daylight savings time always messes with me because that whole getting up an hour earlier is bad for my psyche. As is all the crap that continues at … Read More

A Monster of a Week

Happy Sunday, Journeyer! Just when I think things on the work front can’t get any crazier… They do… I’m just going to leave it at that… The newest set of circumstances has me a bit unnerved, but all I can say is that I’m happy I do my job and perform the safety checks I’m required to do every single … Read More

This Monday morning I come to you weary from a lack of sleep due to a cold that just won’t let go. Even so, I come to you with a happy heart. Warren was gone again this weekend, which left my trusty Pooch, Patches, and I to our own devices once again. Know what we did, Journeyer? I sorted all … Read More

Happy Monday, Journeyer! I seem to keep missing my Sunday deadline for this Happy Happens column, but just like it’s never too late to tell someone how much you appreciate her/him, it’s also never to late to acknowledge those glorious moments–no matter how brief–that make us feel good. And honestly, after last week’s hellishness, and I do mean HELLISHNESS, I … Read More

Angels, Friends, and The Fool

  Happy Sunday (now Monday), Journeyer!   It’s been an equally delightful and dreary week. The frigid temps forced me to break out my coat of all winter coats, a knee-length down parka, and my furry hat. You know it’s cold when I break out a hat. Brrrr… I especially miss sunshine this time of year… We arrived home one … Read More
