At this time of year, when the sun is most hidden, the holiday of Hanukkah celebrates the rays of hope and light... At such times, we yearn for the sun, and the light and warmth that it provides. Often, it is through simple and unrecognized miracles that we are able to feel the warmth of hope and light.
—Rabbi Rafael Goldstein

Grow some today!!

As you give love out, it's received and reciprocated--and it grows. That's the beauty of it. Love is an energy. You can feed it to people, and they in turn feed it to others, and eventually it comes back.

Married Love

Married love, enduring through a thousand vicissitudes, seems to me the most beautiful of miracles, even if the most common.

What is Butt dust???

What, you ask, is 'Butt dust?' Read on and you'll discover the joy in it!These have to be original and genuine. No adult is this creative!!

JACK (age 3) was watching his Mom breast-feeding his new baby s ister. After a whi le he asked: 'Mom why have you got two? Is one for hot and one for cold milk?'

MELANIE (age 5) asked her Granny how old she was. Granny replied she was so old she didn't remember any more. Melanie said, 'If you don't remember you must look in the back of your panties. Mine say five to six.'

STEVEN (age 3) hugged and kissed his Mom good night. 'I love you so much that when you die I'm going to bury you outside my bedroom window.'

BRITTANY(age 4) had an ear ache and wanted a pain killer. She tried in vain to take the lid off the bottle. Seeing her frustration, her Mom explained it was a child-proof cap and she'd have to open it for her. Eyes wide with wonder, the little girl asked: 'How does it know it's me?'

SUSAN (age 4) was drinking juice when she got the hiccups. 'Please don't give me this juice again,' she said, 'It makes my teeth cough.'

DJ (age 4) stepped onto the bathroom scale and asked: 'How much do I cost?'

MARC (age 4) was engrossed in a young couple that were hugging and kissing in a restaurant. Without taking his eyes off them, he asked his dad: 'Why is he whispering in her mouth?'

CLINTON(age 5) was in his bedroom looking worried. When his Mom asked what was troubling him, he replied, 'I don't know what'll happen with this bed when I get married. How will my wife fit in it?'

JAMES (age 4) was listening to a Bible story. His dad read: 'The man namedLotwas warned to take his wife and flee out of the city but his wife looked back and was turned to salt.' Concerned, James asked: 'What happened to the flea?'

TAMMY (age 4) was with her mother when they met an elderly, rather wrinkled woman her Mom knew. Tammy looked at her for a while and then asked, 'Why doesn't your skin fit your face?'
The Sermon:I think this Mom will never forget this particular Sunday sermon...'Dear Lord,' the minister began, with arms extended toward heaven and a rapturous look on his upturned face. 'Without you, we are but dust...' He would have continued but at that moment my very obedient daughter who was listening leaned over to me and asked quite audibly in her shrill little four year old girl voice, 'Mom, what is butt dust?'
Make sure you pass this one on and spread the smiles....

Be a clown!!!

Laugh and the world laughs with you!!!

So Keep on Smiling!!!

The proposition that optimism leads to success is not just a theory,
it’s a researched-based fact. Martin Seligman, a psychologist at
the University of Pennsylvania, has proven that optimists are more
successful than equally talented pessimists – in business, education,
sports, and politics.
- Eric Harvey

This gives me hope because I may not have been born with the most talent, but I
sure can strive to be the most OPTIMISTIC!*****

'Move it along'

I have come to a realization that has made me shall I say...Happy.
There's a lot in the news lately about clutter and stuff and having too much of it. Even in Oprah's mag 'O' there is an article about freeing yourself of it and how to go about it. Personally, I can't stand to have too much clutter around, it saps my energy.

So my realization is 'move it along'. The world has become my storage unit. There are others out there who may need your stuff and need it now. So take joy in giving. And if for some strange reason you need it again…check the local Curb Alerts. I am sure you’ll be able to pick one up again.

love. grace. gratitude. . . happiness

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed.

Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with *love, *grace and  *gratitude ~

Sometimes happiness is a blessing,
  but, generally, it is a conquest.
      Each day's magic moment
 helps us to change and sends us off
      in search of our dreams.

The Undercurrent of Happiness


"No matter what you are doing,
keep the undercurrent of happiness.
Learn to be secretly happy
within your heart in spite
of all circumstances."
-- Paramahansa Yogananda

What makes you happy? Really happy?

Ask yourself...what makes me happy?
The kind of happiness that sweeps up
from your toes to the tip of your head.
"I'm fulfilled in what I do...I never thought
that a lot of money or
fine clothes--the finer
things in life--would make you happy.
My happiness is to be filled
in a spiritual sense." -- Coretta Scott King

The way to find out about Happy

The way to find out about happiness is to keep your mind on those moments when you feel most happy, when you are really happy – not excited, not just thrilled, but deeply happy. This requires a little bit of self-analysis. What is it that makes you happy? Stay with it, no matter what people tell you. This is what is called following your bliss.” Joseph Campbell

Why be happy?

I've decided to be happy because it's good for my health!


Love Life

I have found that if you love life, life will love you back.
Arthur Rubinstein [1887-1982]

My friend Carrie talks often about "what is appreciated, appreciates". It is true for kindness and fun and silliness and happiness and smiles too.

I'm working in a cafe today and the barrista behind the counter is just about the happiest coffee worker I've ever seen. He is smiling and friendly and helpful and genuinely seems like he's enjoying his time spent making cappucinos and doling out sandwiches. Each interaction he is chatty and funny and each person walks away from the counter feeling happier than they were before they stepped up to the counter to order. Even one guy, who walked in with a bit of angry fire in his eyes, and stared down the barrista because his receipt was taking a little too long, left feeling a little bit better about his day because, while he was fuming and snorting about how long it was taking, the barrista just looked at him, without saying a word, and smiled, smiled, smiled. Until finally the angry dude just had to smile too and he was genuinely appreciative for having his anger recognized and diffused.

So, try it - from both points of view. Appreciate what happy vibes others are sending your way and appreciate others who might need a little TLC to help get them through the day.

Happy's Birthday

May 7, 2007 is Happy's birthday. That's when he came into being ya know. Actually he was probably always there, he just needed someone to expose him. Someone to say, hey I will help spread the word that you exist. That's why Happy's Campaign began. To spread the word that he exists. That yes, Happiness is alive and well and we are going to spread it big time.
So go Campaign for Happy today and go smile at someone.

It's true what they say...

that you can "spread sunshine all over the place, when you put on a happy face!" It's a corny song lyric sure but if you apply it to your daily life you will see why it was made into a song in the first place - it actually works!

Try it next time you're at work or walking through your neighborhood or even browsing the aisles of your local grocery store. You will see that when you walk along greeting each person you pass with a smile and a nod - a nod which basically says, "I see you and I recognize you as another person traveling these same roads", then that smile and nod will not only come back at you, it will be spread to the next one that person encounters and so on and so on and so on and so on. Until sunshine, happiness, is literally spread all over the place.

It can't hurt to try.
