Go to your happy place

Over the past 19 days when I felt like someone shook my world, I focus on my "happy places" to get me through. Here are just a few things that make me so happy.


It's Saturday morning, Sept. 14.  I just listened to a favorite song "Wagon Wheel" by Darius Rucker.  I remember driving through Zion National Park on one of our trips and hearing this song on the radio.  It just makes me want to sing, dance and hug somebody!  

I love playing the piano, which I did for the first time this morning, after not playing for more than a week.  

Outdoors and good friends:

The highlight of my day today, Sat. Sept. 14, was being able to see my Saturday morning hikers for just 5 minutes before they left the meeting place. Hiking every week for 10 years with my group has truly been one of my most consistent happy places.  Even though I couldn't actually hike with them today, it was awesome to be able to see everyone for just 5 minutes before going back home and resting.
