Tonight I have traded in my nightly glass of wine for a cup of Tazo Calm Tea. This is my favorite tea and puts me right out, so I will make this quick.

No matter what happened today, good or bad, I have some great news …


I hope that made you smile.

Until tomorrow …

I my earlier post, I mentioned being the reason someone smiles. Here’s my challenge … I challenge each of you reading this to go out and make someone smile, reblog this challenge, and post a comment on how you made someone smile.


It can be something small like smiling and saying good morning to someone and having them smile back or it can be something larger. No matter the size, taking on this challenge makes the world a little better.

Good luck!!!

My Hero of the Day is …

My husband/ex-husband!!!

The nature of our relationship is a little tricky. He and I are physically separated, but nothing has been filed. This has been the deal for several years.

Since separating, he and I have been best friends. We are friendly or both the kiddos and for ourselves. We married our best friends, but the marriage didn’t last. The friendship did.

I have lately been overextended with work, activities for the kids, and everything else. So, as of 8:15 pm last night, I had been signed up for helping to serve dinner at the church (yes, I go to church, and yes I’m active in said church, but I’m not super religious. That is for a later blog). I was also signed up for ringing the Salvation Army bell at the same time as dinner and my little kiddo was in a Christmas program at the church after dinner, but during the bell ringing.

Tonight is absolutely freezing, and my hub/ex-hub offered to take the older kiddo to ring the bell. He and the kid stood in the freezing cold, ringing a bell while I was nice and warm.

I will go more into separation in later blogs, but I would like to say thank you Joe. Now go get warm.
