choose happiness



Hello, my sweet friends. I'm sorry about the absence last week. I've been incredibly busy. I absolutely had to get the site updated...Doojies, Little Melfred, and Melissa had all sent me things so long ago and it was just unforgivable for me to sit on them so long. I'm so happy that all of the new things are so well received. Thank you everyone for your purchases. It does my heart good every single time someone chooses something from Inspire Company to add to their lives, or better yet, to give as an expression of love to others.

Last Tuesday, there was no sodie pop review. And I'm afraid there'll be none today. I've run out of interesting drinks available at the sandwich shop. Well I should clarify that there are still some power drinks and yoo-hoo like drinks (including a milky way drink!) that I am afraid of. They never look appealing to me at 9 am. But interesting? Yes, very.

As I was driving in this morning, I was struck by all of the road rage all around me. I drive a little bit like a grandmother, so often I am the target of the road rage. Fists (or worse!) raised to me as they pass, horns ablasting.

I do not understand road rage. I don't know why someone would allow another person, a stranger in another car, to ruin their happiness in that given moment. Sure, I've run across (not literally, I promise) bad drivers. But I try to preserve my happiness by not letting their actions effect my mood. Isn't your happiness too precious to toss it aside when someone changes lanes without a blinker? (I always use a blinker, by the way. Even when I'm turning into my driveway. See what I say? grandmother on board. Wouldn't "Choose Happiness" make good bumper sticker? I'm not the bumper sticker type, personally. I'd rather be on a first-name basis with someone before I let them know my view on gun control or drunk driving or any combination of the two, for instance.

I am going on a great adventure tomorrow. That's all I'll give away today but boy will I have a wonderful lot of goodness to post on Thursday.

Oooh no sodie pop review? I'll have to get by dreaming of the ice cream pictures today. By the way, my neighbor B. Hill ordered from you and her Mother loved her gifts, wrapped so beautifully! I say keep your cool on the roadway through life

You must drive like me! I also use my blinker turning into the driveway. Whenever Hans and I see a car turn without a blinker, we say "oh! How sad...that car didn't come with blinkers". My mom drives like a crazy woman, so I think that I rebelled by driving like a little old lady. Have fun on that mystery adventure!

Unfortunately road rage is common here in the Chicago area as well. What has happened to civility? By the way, love your blog darling.

To Miss AnastasiaC I say....."upsets no one but themselves"...... unless you happen to be a passanger in the vehicle w/the road rager.
