How is it that I am in my 50’s and just learning how to clean a house? I admit it, I have been spoiled. I put in lots of hours at work, and was fortunate to have a spouse that was happy to stay home and take care of me… and of the house. (more…)

I’ve been thinking about what I can do to make the new year happy.  Not just for me, but happier on a broader scale.

I’m not much of a New Year’s resolution maker.  Probably because I believe New Year’s resolutions are overrated.  (Or maybe its just a lack of follow through on my own part!)

But this year seems a bit different.  I feel more in control of my own time.  Or at least more responsible for it.

The thing that has been weighing heavily on me lately is the way we are surrounded by – no, immersed in – negativity, violence, corruption, hatred.  Sure, there is a lot of that in our world today.   But it seems to be the only thing that we read, watch and talk about.

This year, I’d like to be a part of spreading some cheer.  I want to help us all remember that there are indeed many kind, wonderful and happy things happening around us.

So, this is my plan… Once a week, sharing something positive that is happening in the world.  A random act of kindness.  A brilliant project that someone has undertaken.  A heartwarming story of love.  Something good.  Every Friday.

Good Friday…  A 52 week challenge of spreading some joy.  Anyone else up for the challenge?
