ive happy, laugh often, love deeply

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Be the Change.”

This year, my coffee cup says it all – Live happy, laugh often, love deeply. What a great set of goals. I plan to enjoy what I do, both at work and at home. I want to eat less, but savor every bite and enjoy every sip. I want to dance or at least relearn how to dance. I want go out at least once a month on a date with my beloved husband. I also want go out with friends. I want to learn how to use oil paints and continue studying art. I want to see all three of my daughters graduate from their respective programs and start a new lives; probably in new cities with new jobs or schools. Spend time with my parent. Enjoy my animals. Write more. Finally I want to share that passion, love, and joy in life with my family, friends, and others. Here’s wishing the best for a new year.


Author: Heres to ART not Cockroaches

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
