Health and Happiness — We Are Thankful, Are You?

Today, after church finished, we sat and visited together as the final preparations were being put on a Thanksgiving meal in the church kitchen.  For several years we have done this on the Sunday before Thanksgiving.  We have some really GOOD cooks at our church!  After about 30 minutes, the kitchen serving window opened and [...]

A Little of "This" and a Little of "That!"

A Little of “This” and a Little of “That!”

First about my absence from writing for two or three weeks — I was buried in spam comments, which took all of my time and didn’t leave me any time to write.  Did you miss me?  I did miss writing! I hope all of you have been keeping happy and healthy!  My husband and I [...]

I Hope Your New Year Is Starting Out Happy!

Imagine!  We are already a whole week into 2014!  It certainly doesn’t seem like a whole year has gone by since the last new year arrived.  Life gets busier and goes by faster all the time, or so it seems to me.  I have friends that feel that same way.  Where does all of our [...]

Health and Happiness — Is It Really Almost 2014?

How can time move by so quickly?!  A whole year has gone by too fast!!  I cannot believe that in just a few days a new year, 2014, will be HERE!  It really doesn’t seem possible!  Some of my friends have said the same thing, so I know it isn’t just me.  Do any of [...]

Health and Happiness -- Some Things Just for Fun!

Health and Happiness — Some Things Just for Fun!

I was thinking back over some funny and even strange things that have happened in our lives.  Sometimes things happen and at the time they seem serious even, but later it’s just sort of fun to think back about those happenings and some of them seem a little less serious than they did at the [...]

Health and Happiness -- Friends and Other Things!

Health and Happiness — Friends and Other Things!

Friendships can add so much to our happiness, and when we are happy we are more likely to be healthier too.  Friendships can be brief, lasting, or even lasting “forever!”  I feel so sorry for people I have known who have not had happy family relationships, because I feel they have missed so much in [...]
