A purring kitten, a walk in the rain, early summer mornings on the deck…ahhhh.   Soak in the peace.

Like a fresh new morning, a cold glass of water on a hot day, or a heart-to-heart talk with a friend, let this website refresh and rejuvenate you.

Slow down and enjoy the simple, beautiful things in life…a flower, fluffy clouds, a hug. 🙂   

“Today will never come again.  Be a blessing.  Be a friend.  Encourage someone.  

Take time to care. Let your words heal and not wound.”


“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant.”

Robert Louis Stevenson

“In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count.  It’s the life in your years.”

Abraham Lincoln

Just a quick word on how to get the most out of my website.  Home, Get to Know Me, Pictures, and Tidbits are pages.  This means they are static and won’t be changing (at least not very often or much).  So once you visit them and read and see everything, you won’t need to check them out again (unless you want to!)  The Let’s Talk “page” is my blog.  It’s where all the new “stuff” that I’m going to share with you will show up.  Be sure to start with the first post entitled “Welcome”  and sign up for free joy so you will always have a fresh supply! Thanks for being here.  I truly hope you enjoy Contagious Joy!
