The Pinnacle of Thanksgiving Happiness

In those days, I never really thought about Thanksgiving changing or a time when I would long to see some of those folks again on a Thursday in the future. I believe it is those days when God protects us from viewing tomorrow and allows us just to enjoy the day.

The Expiration Date

Richard Branson – Easy, Breezy, Beautiful

I am grateful for the freedom of choices that I have had over the years, but I’m also ready to release more and more and liberate my cluttered mind and closet and hopefully make more important decisions like Richard Branson does.

Musings of an Undefeated Matriarch

It's Friday Again

However, there's a big difference between making sense of the numbers on a wristwatch and knowing where time goes. As we age we often say time flies, but even today's youngsters are more aware of its passage than I was as a child.

Where Do We Go From Here?

A 2010 Gallup poll found happiness tends to be positively linked with age, and 85 year olds are more satisfied with life than 18 year olds.
