Every story deserves a happily-ever-after.

Recently, Facebook (source of cute cat videos, funny memes, and other delights) reminded me of something nice that happened three years ago. I thought it might give you a smile. 🙂

From February 21, 2014

So, I went to Starbucks at lunch (shocking, I know), and as I walked inside I paused to hold the door for the lady behind me. Our eyes met, and I smiled at her and said hi. A few minutes later, I’m at the counter and I order my drink. The barista rings up the total, and before I can pay, the woman shoves a card at the cashier. “I’m paying for this lady’s drink,” she says.

“Really?” I squeal. “Thank you! Why?”

“Because you held the door for me and smiled,” she says. “I was having a terrible day, and it really meant a lot that you did that.”

Wow, right? A little routine politeness can really make a difference. It can brighten someone’s day, and even score a free cup of coffee!

Hugs, and stay warm!


Well, here we are: a brand new year! I hope that 2017 has treated you well so far, and that it continues to behave itself for the next 362 days, if not longer. 😉

This year, one of my resolutions is to write more, including blogging on a regular basis. But when it comes to deciding what to blog about, I often find myself flummoxed.

To counter-act the flummoxicity (just because it’s not in the dictionary doesn’t mean it’s not a word) I wrote up a little survey with a few areas that I thought might be of interest. If you have a second, could you check off any subjects that tickle your fancy? You can check as many as you like, or leave requests/suggestions of your own in the comment boxes.

Oh, and the “Name,” “Email,” etc., fields are all optional, so if you prefer to be incognito, feel free to remain a woman (or man) of mystery. 🙂

Thank you in advance for your input!

So…. what should I blog about in 2017?
