Happiness is:
Courageously doing what you want to do, even if you are scared.
Experiencing your life as an exciting journey.
Stimulating your mind and caring for your body.
Realizing that you already have everything you need to make yourself happy.
Knowing that you are the only one who can decide what is right or wrong for you.
Accepting that you are okay even when you blunder from your mistakes.
Knowing that what people say or do is a reflection of them and not you.
Listening to your inner wisdom.
Giving and receiving love unconditionally.
I know I am a work in progress and always will be. Each day I realize that I really do have in my possesion what it takes to be happy. It is a journey and with His help it will be a wonderful journey!

Under the stars

Last Friday, we spent a wonderful evening at the Starlight Theater. The performance was "Chicago" and I have to say, I think it was the best show that I have been to at the Starlight. The dancing was fantastic! Fortunately it did not rain and the heat and humidity were not as bad as it had been all week. Jim was still feeling the effects of being on a rooftop working 2 days in a row in the heat, so he was not feeling so great.
Monday night, we had tickets to the Daryl Worley show at the Voodoo lounge at Harrah's. Jenny and John went with us. We had great seats and it was a fun show.

Summer colds....

It would seem that I have caught the dreaded summer cold....yucky! I came home early yesterday and put myself to bed for a nap. A little later, I heard the pitter-patter of little feet, and Caleb calling out "Gramma, what are you doing home?" He had come over to watch a favorite tv show that we tape for him every week, and Jack was going to take a nap. I told him I was not feeling well, and he might catch my cold. He said, "oh, that's ok Gramma, we are sick too, so we can stay!" So we watched "Magic Secrets Revealed" and Jack took his nap!

Jim and I are enjoying our deck this summer. We purchased a "balcony" table and chair set for the upper deck. The weather has been wonderful, and we eat out on the deck as often as we can. The biggest problem would be the darn mosquitos!!!!

For love is sufficient unto love....

Today, we helped two of our dearest friends celebrate their anniversary of six years at Buca di Beppo. Joe and Grace, as well as John and Jenny helped us to honor Finis and Jean, and their commitment and love for each other. We are fortunate to have such a loving circle of friends!

When you love you should not say, "God is in my heart",

but rather, I am in the heart of God."
