So I’m on the train — heading to Baltimore for work for the day. I’m reading, looking out the window…..restless, fidgeting. Then, I hear my phone ‘ping’. Somebody sent me a text. I look down at my iphone and I see this…….
Happy 20th Birthday to my beautiful daughter Caitlin. I can’t even begin to count the number of happy days you have given me. And life has graced me with TWO beautiful daughters, so I am truly doubly blessed. #100happydays (6/100)
Long, long ago – my mother taught me this, “Diane, hon – there’s nothing a good cup of tea can’t fix!”
This week tested your theory Mom, and you were right! Thank you mom, I love you. #100happydays (5/100)
As my girls were growing up, I focused on encouraging a generous spirit in their hearts. The second lesson was that — generosity doesn’t require a lot of money. HUGE life lessons.
“THEY” say — when you get past 40, your eyesight is the first to go. I hate it when “THEY” are right!
Peter and I have had a bottle of champagne chilling in the fridge since August. We had planned to “pop the cork” when Erin left for college. A celebration of each other — as we began the next phase of our lives together as the proverbial ’empty nesters’.
Haha – it sounded good on paper —- but it never happened.
My friend Faith Dara has been posting 100 Days of Happiness. It was an inspiration passed on to her by a friend in her life. By association on FB — it’s had a wonderful effect on me. Each day, I would come to FB with an excitement, an expectation … to see the small, simple things that brought happiness into Faith’s life. It made me smile. Her happiness was contagious!
