Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall

posted by kjackson

Have you ever thought about how a look in the mirror was reason enough for the queen to demand Snow White’s heart on a platter? I approach living life “happy” almost as if it were a job…a daily challenge. It’s […]

I tend to avoid the news because it can be so depressing and upsetting, but, every once in awhile, a news piece will make me smile. Today I read about Peter Shankman who, after a very long day of travel, […]

posted by kjackson

When the subject of environmentalism comes up in everyday conversation, I usually hear two prevailing thoughts: 1.  “That’s a bunch of political hogwash. There’s plenty of land…energy…etc.” 2. “Oh, no! What shall we do!? There won’t *be* a world for […]

posted by kjackson

  I love how laughter is contagious. I laughed all the way through this video and now I Feel Good (nanananana…I knew that I would…nanananan….)!  He has got to have the cutest giggle ever.

Glorious Roofing!

Illinois just joined ranks with other states who are recycling old roofing shingles to pave roads. The old shingles are ground up and added to the asphalt mix. Missouri has already done such a thing and estimates it saved $20 […]

King Kong? Godzilla? No–Kudzu!

posted by kjackson

When I was 13-years-old my family moved from the land of prairie grass and crape myrtle (Oklahoma) to the land of mimosa trees and kudzu vines (Mississippi). I’ll never forget my first glimpse of kudzu. All along the highway it […]

Ninety-eight-year-old Keiko Fukuda of San Francisco recently received her 10th degree black belt. This means she’s been promoted to judo’s highest level…an honor only three other people have ever attained: all men, all living in Japan. I remember when I […]

CBS News reports that a nine-year-old Virginian boy put his wallet– containing over $300 he had saved and gift cards he had received for his birthday–down on a convenience store counter and the wallet was stolen. That would be the […]

You’re So (not) Pretty?

posted by kjackson

When I say to my little girls–age nine and seven–“you’re so pretty!” am I setting them up for heartache? Am I telling them the same sort of lies as I tell them when I pretend there is an Easter Bunny […]

Marvelous Morale

posted by kjackson

Yesterday morning I awoke at 4:30 a.m., grabbed a big to-go cup of coffee and drove 2 1/2 hours to pick up a pig. Then I turned around and drove 2 1/2 hours home again…uh…jiggidy jig. I used an entire […]

Turn the Radio On
Recently the kids and I have been listening to an audio book when we're in the car, but, sometimes, between discs, we'll let the radio play. Since we gave up TV years ago...and I don't read the news, either...we can be a little out of the loop. ...

Miracles in the Midst of Sorrow
I've found there is no logic to how I feel in the middle of grief. I've received huge gifts, and--although I'm thankful for them because they assure me I don't have to make a drastic lifestyle change at the same time that our family has been ...

Like a Symphony
Sometimes I actually think :). I like to plan and compare and problem solve. Sometimes I think my way to an answer. Sometimes I make choices based solely on my gut whether the choice seems logical or not. I feel my way to an answer (I use ...
