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 …

Dear Journeyer, Sometimes we find ourselves swept up in day-to-day drudgery, dreams, and drama. This past week was filled with all of those. I spent most of the week catching up after being away at the National Grief and Hope Convention. Some of those activities included minutia like unpacking, doing laundry, putting away shoes and suitcases… There were pleasant doings …

Happy Sunday, Journeyer! Each week I sit down at my computer and scroll through my iPhone’s camera roll and through my week’s notes. This look into my week’s rear-view mirror is a way of illuminating my week ahead. Sound strange or contradictory? In the traditional sense of “rear-view” mirror it is, but in the context of my weekly challenge to …

A Rebirth

Happy Sunday, Journeyer! I’m afraid I’ve been under the weather these past two days and haven’t been able to share my overwhelming excitement with my new website! After sleeping most of the day away, I’m determined to post something from this new site and to continue the tradition of this Happy Happens column. Those of you who’ve been hanging out …

Happy Sunday, Journeyer! Right now, we’re returning from an out-of-town trip for Big Guy. I have to say that in this moment, as Warren drives through intermittent freezing rain and snow, I’m grateful that my boy doesn’t have use of his license right now. Chuckle… I guess there really are two sides to nearly every emotion… My youngest was driving …

Anticipation, Perfectly Paused

Happy Sunday, Journeyer! As I round out this day, I feel a sense of accomplishment. I slept in, had a little fun playing phone games, completed a few tax tasks, transported Big Guy to a soccer event an hour from home, made a few scrumptious meals, completed this post, and worked a little on my upcoming speech. I am overjoyed to have …

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 evening early …

“Think without boundaries.” Dove Promises® Happy Sunday-Monday, Journeyer! I’m not really sure where this week went, but it is behind us. Maybe, if you’ve had a rough week, you’re happy to tell it sayonara! Maybe, if the past seven days have brought you luxurious comfort or good news galore, you wish it would linger a little longer… Regardless, though, the …

Journeyer, so much to report from this past week! The work issue still stinks and two different law firms have said that, though what my supervisor did wasn’t legal, there’s not really anything they can do to help… So, guess what I decided to do? I’m going back to my union for their recommendation, which will likely entail a meeting …
