So true, Dr. Hershey. Peace is found in the quiet, simple moments in life.

Today, the winds are blustery and I have a little concern about driving into the desert later today. But I will be with my mother and two of my sisters, and I am looking forward to that. We will be driving out to check on an elderly uncle 393 miles away.

I am preparing the house so he can move in with us. smile

Two days ago I got to have an adventure kayak with dan and I was so very very happy. The glow lasted for days, for only two hours of experience. We were ramming our boats through tight mangrove thickets and i felt i'd discovered a new adventure sport. During the experience I was whoo-hooing at the top of my lungs. YOU KNOW you're having a great day when you can use your skills to navigate safely an area that others would find frightening and otherworldly.

I'm so thankful for these too rare moments.

PS - this did not hurt the mangroves in any way. Its was more like being on the set of Bogart's The African Queen. Awesome.

Lori,
What a loving gesture! Your uncle is very lucky.

Jilly,
Sounds like a wonderful experience. When you are feeling low/anxious try to think back to that moment. The sights, sounds, smells and feeling. This activity of remembering a wonderful moment/experience may be a good technique to add to your "strategies to lower anxiety" list.

I am happy to be able to spend the day with my mom.

What is good/happy in your day today? smile

Lori,

Be safe out there.

I'm so very grateful that you are going to bring your uncle into your home.

Connie and I cared for my dad all the way through, right in the home.

You have no idea how important that is as we age and become more vulnerable.

It can get trying at times, but the love is not lost.

You will be able to offer your uncle warmth and security and allow him to enjoy the food he likes and the activities he likes.

-- Burt B.

Today I am happy for the quiet, slow pace. No errands, chores. Just relaxing, writing and drinking my cupS of joe. smile

What is happy in your day today?

Hi Ilyssa, the whole topic of 'Happiness' is fascinating, especially when one looks at how it's defined and experienced across the world. Many seek it all their lives only to find in the end that it was closer to home than they even imagined. (JOY)

Dear Dr.

Had a fantastic day.great breakfast at one restaurant,then moved to my office at MC Donald's,a friend came in we spoke,got back on my tablette and reading.For supper went to another restaurant.where I ate fantastic veggie foods.Met a retired Dentist.We exchanged spiritually.He said that he hurt people in his life,and is trying to do good ,even put adds in the newspaper
Gave Him a note:Ask the Universe to send you someone to love!
Told him if you do that ,you will be swamped with people you can help.

Lori, that is very giving of you, especially since you just settled your aunt comfortably elsewhere.

Today was better for me. I had some time to be affectionate with Dan, and that makes me feel happy.
