Laughter Does a Heart Good

How many times this week did you laugh? I mean really have a gut buster? I must have laughed until I cried at least three times this week and while at work! I wonder are certain personalities predisposed to laughter? What makes you laugh? I’m not talking about the fake kind. I’m talking about [...]

Why I Write

So as the clock turned and we approached the year 2015, I made a list of 45 things I wanted to experience by age 45. Let’s just say I’m afraid I have only accomplished four of those things with only two months to go in the year. I’m proud to say that one of those things was to start a blog. [...]

Sounds of Heaven
