Mary Ellen, from Genesis Books has been one of Happiness 101‘s greatest supporters and sponsors.  She was always caring, patient and knowledgeable.  She has left a tremendous legacy to Salt Lake City. Genesis Books is one of the greatest sources of 12-step material in the valley.  They have also sponsored many 12-step meetings over the years.  Genesis Books is a haven for those struggling with addiction.  RIP Mary Ellen.

Lunch with a friend I don’t see often but our conversation is always lively and personal.

Got to hold that brand new baby, oh the feelings when you hold any baby especially one you have loved for months before she got here.

Positive 3

When I got home the dogs reaction to me and the “smell” of the baby on me. They seem so concerned. Like they know. I remember how Maddie my past hound dog would come up and cry loud cries after I would hold a baby. It is amazing the common threads among the living.

After trying to endure watching the series Empire Boardwalk I decided all the ickyness it made me feel and nightmares was not worth it and took it back to the library. I want to see things that make me happy or at least think.

Positive 2

Today I felt snippy at the store and irritated that the belt kept dragging my purse down as I was trying to get in it. I almost snapped at the clerk and something stopped me cause it wasn’t her fault, good thing, turned out she is a dear friends grand daughter. Glad I controlled my crabbiness (solar storms and dry hot wind make me crabby, ok not for happiness page).

Positive 3

And with the storms it is good that many people get to experience the Northern Lights which we rarely see. (Hope I get to see.)

The clouds today were so amazing and fluffy.  I was so amazed at the sky today. It made driving the 100 miles around town more pleasant. (yes 100 miles of city driving)
