I guess I would start out by saying that if you want to tell someone you love them, just say it. Even if it meant you would cry because those feelings of love were SO POWERFUL – just say it. It’s ok if they see you cry. It shows that you are human. Just because […]

I’m going to go out on a limb here (not really) and assume we all have more than one guilty pleasure. Yes? A game of “I’ll tell you mine, if you tell me yours.” Wanna play? Good, I knew you would. I will go first, as this is my blog! But do tell me yours. […]

Ever have one of THOSE days? You know the type I’m talking about. The kind that not just one thing goes wrong but a series of things go wrong, like someone says something offensive to you AND your kids decide that their way is just better…along with your bunk mate, Anxiety. For the most part, […]

Several years ago, I read a book, “One Thousand Gifts,” written by Ann Voskamp. What the author was essentially saying was to acknowledge and give thanks for whatever was going on in your life. Big or small. It blew me away, the simplicity of the meaning and why we should all be doing it. I […]

Great pieces of advice for any age. When I was in my early 20s, an acquaintance (now a good friend) taught me a very valuable lesson. She had just miscarried a baby and all of her family & friends were sad for her. I asked her why she would even tell anyone before 12 weeks. […]

How many times when you were growing up did you hear your dad or mom say, “you think you have it tough… when I was growing up we had to walk five miles to school every day, up a hill, in the winter.” “The teachers would walk around with a yard stick and whack my […]

Totally true. When I was 16, my best friend and her family invited me to go to Misquamicut Beach with them for the day. No big deal. But for me, it was HUGE. When the water splashed up into my face, some of it got into my mouth. Guess what? I yelled, “why is the […]

Purely an opinion, my opinion, on what makes us happy. Us meaning GreyFeathers… Us who are around 40-60 years old. Obviously, I don’t live with any of you. I don’t know where your daily ‘happy meter’ is set. I’m sure it changes from day to day or week to week, dare I say year to […]

As we age we become more social, don’t we? Strike up a conversation with anyone anywhere because why not? (the photo of the taxi driver is because I just got out of a taxi and met a new friend!) You meet a lot of people that way. God how my mother embarrassed me when she did […]

How long have you been doing laundry? My mom taught me how to do laundry when I was ten years old. That’s like over 40 years of doing laundry… just my own. I’ve been doing someone else’s laundry since I was 23. At 26 I was doing yet another person’s laundry and by the time […]
