My Wish For You . . .

As I read through it, I realized that it applies just as aptly to my readers.  The reason I started my my blog is to help others. So my dear friends and readers, this too – Is…

Six Tips to Choose to Be Happy!

Six Tips to Choose to Be Happy Life is a series of events, good and bad.  My journey has had its share of both.  Through it all, I’ve learned a lot about being happy.
