Shaking It Up? Sometimes you will miss a few weeks….


Shake It Up — sometimes it is harder than one might think if there is too much emotionally going on. Very dear friends lost their son a couple of weeks ago, and life has really revolved around them, as it should.

So what did I do this past Thursday? Just tried to keep things lighthearted, tell a few jokes (some were better than others), be kind, and appreciate life and everyone who is put in our path.

I think that after being in DC for 4 days, I was ok with getting back into my usual routine. If you shake things up too much, you might forget who you are!     🙂
