Not sure if you’ve noticed but my random happy/funny thoughts seem to be waning with the days of summer. The school stress left behind in the classroom in June started to creep back in as the days of August ticked away. The countdown back to school began on the first day of the boys’ summer, August 15th, and the ticking of that clock — which, sadly, only lasts 3 short weeks — has become maddening. I don’t want summer to end yet! I’M not ready! Heck, for the boys summer has barely JUST begun!!!! I’m bummed and, as such, I don’t laugh as much as I want to, or should, these final lazy days of summer. I’m dwelling a bit too much on the inevitable return to the school grind… just like I did when I was a kid. Thankfully, I’m still able to find those pockets of joy and opportunities to laugh here and there! And let me tell you, this past Tuesday, I found one and belly-laughed all the way home from the Bronx Zoo.
Inspired by the 31for21 Down Syndrome Blog Challenge and happiness-project.com, I began this blog in pursuit of my own happiness while raising my 3 children -- including identical twins with Down syndrome. On these pages, I endeavor to document the bits and pieces of my life that bring me the most happiness and keep me focused on all the positive stuff going on.
Advocacy, Angels and Random Happy Thoughts. These are the threads of happiness that are inextricably woven through the cloth of my life. Staying focused and writing about these things is what keeps me Walking on the Happy Side of Life. I'd love it if you would "Take A Walk on the Happy Side" with me.
