Measuring Success

In graduate school, I had a professor who, for whatever reason, didn’t want to give me an ‘A’. I was three points away from my ‘A’. I KNEW what was coming – and I was correct:

The Secret of Life is Enjoying the Passage of Time

 

Listening to music the other day that James Taylor song played: “The Secret of Life is Enjoying the Passage of Time” and I thought how spot on! Time is going to pass. We might as well enjoy the ride! 45 years have passed since the first time I came to Lake City; it was our honeymoon.

Happiness Is A Choice

What’s Good Going On With You?

 

Little things delight me: a walk in nature,  an unexpected snowfall, a good book, fresh flowers, a tasty meal, happiness is a choice…

New Year’s Day 2022

WORKING AT LIFE

 

 

New Year’s Day 2022 this is my view in our tiny mountain village at 9,000 feet. Most people just want to visit in the summer. So this peacefulness is blessed.

 

 

What’s MOST IMPORTANT to me:

 

Continually:

 

Connecting with my husband

 

Staying healthy – physically, mentally, spiritually

 

Publishing my work & connecting with my readers

 

 

 

I don’t know if I can keep up this pace but my goal is to keep at it:

 

 

Christmas Eve service with husband

                                                                                                                 

 

 

New Year’s Eve dinner with husband – shared my gratitude jar entries for 2021 and we laughed, remembered and were thankful

 

 

 

We shared dessert – I took 1 bite of each

 

 

 

Husband & I are continually working at us.

Before COVID , (we are always going to be saying that) a gathering of us girlfriends was a regular occurrence.
