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.

How can I wrap being thankful up with a touch of forgiveness and living in the present all in one blog post? That’s a tall order for any closet writer but that’s what I’m feeling right now. Yesterday was a … Continue reading
I sometimes think us mothers of children with special needs are more tired than mothers of children without special needs. Maybe that’s true… maybe not. Since I’m fully in the first category, I cannot speak for what life is like … Continue reading
I am nothing if not grateful for this life I’m living. I am imperfect and I’m thankful for that. Perfection is such a hard target to reach and then too stressful to maintain. Waaaaaay too much work! I’ve got other important and … Continue reading
I have been remiss in writing about my pursuit of happiness. Unfortunately, I’ve been entrenched lately in some sad and/or difficult situations. I’m not down-and-out by any means, but I am allowing myself to mourn my Dad’s passing in addition to just being overwhelmed … Continue reading
