How to Have a Happy Summer

Befriend the young;
they're fun to hang out with,
see it all fresh and have unfettered hearts.






Befriend other women;
they walk our path,
mirror our souls and lend their comfort.






Befriend other couples;
they are mentors,
supporters and cheerleaders.





Play games;
they keep you sharp and happy
and give you a way to connect with the young.




Go out for coffee;
find a cafe that writes happy messages to you
and serves little sweet extras to start your day right.




Hope your summer is a happy one. Better yet, make it happy! What would that look like for you?

    1. Here's a fun fact about the coffee- the man who does this speaks Italian but wanted to do something extra for his customers. He's been experimenting (and I think viewing you tube) and delights us each day.
