    I love the ones with BA in English Literature. Because I’m one too 😉 I simply die for literature

    1. Thanks. I’m currently reading Winesburg, Ohio by Sherwood Anderson. Read it in college but when you must complete a research report one is in a hurry and not really getting the full enjoyment of the book.

      1. When I retire sometime in the next two years I will begin working on my book. Right now the long hours and chaos leaves me little time for sleep much less concentration on writing a book. However I do post my poetry on this blog every so often.

    1. Thanks. I needed this Happiness Challenge today. Had to attend a wake for a former colleague. My former co-worker was only 54 when she passed away. Some days you just need that uplift.

  2. Yes, you are very blessed. One day I heard the Jewish custom of counting your blessings first thing in the morning. I think it’s called 100 blessings. I went for a walk and started counting my blessings. I had more than 100. I ran out of time before blessings.

    1. Thanks. I needed that challenge as yesterday I went to a Memorial Service for a former co-worker who passed away. She was younger than me. Death makes you think about these things.
