Barb has a very good life, but she’s pondering what it takes to go from good to great.
Sitting in the corner of the room at my desk, I raised my weary head and asked, “Is it time for chocolate cold brew yet?” She said, “Heck yeah!”, and disappeared into the kitchen. My attitude was instantly uplifted. This new email platform for work is eating my breakfast, lunch and dinner, but you know… Continue reading Protect Your Happy
She drove to the store to pick up a few things. I had written ‘Hydrangeas’ on the list, but she spotted daffodils and instinctively knew which to buy. Daffodils are displayed on the table.
