Here are my responses:
Happiness is time that doesn’t have me going in 50 different directions at the same time, not able to catch a breath. Happiness is time spent watching the birds, squirrels, and frogs. Happiness is being able to sleep through the night without 400 calls from my bladder. Happiness is Jesus, family, and home.
Ten years ago, I …was almost 43. I was living with tumors, but didn’t know it yet. I (we) still had 3 children living at home. I believe that I was driving a green Ford Windstar. I was getting used to yet another new normal.
They say “laughter is the best medicine”. Sometimes it is; sometimes it is not appropriate for the situation.
Most people don’t know that I descended from a line of potters. My Gunter ancestors were potters in Edgefield County, South Carolina. They were versed in the alkaline glazing technique and carried that technique with them to the northeastern parts of Georgia, where they trained other potters in the technique.
I want to learn their craft and have been researching all that I can about it. Maybe THIS is what I am meant to do, wake up this generations-old craft of our ancestors. I can’t wait to see where this goes!
