That’s why I often write about what happy people do more often, about some of the habits of remarkably happy people, about things to stop doing so you can be happier at work, about simple daily habits of exceptionally happy people.

The points written in the article by Jeff Haden shares and support ways people do get a sense of fulfillment.  Provides each of us resilience living tools to connect with what we do.  Here is the link..

Honoring the Caretaker!

Honoring the Caretaker Today!…Well… everyday!  However, today, here at the “soon to open” home of Experiosity Smilin’ Place we honor the Caretakers Today!

Caretakers…Come from all walks of life.   According to Wikepedia caretaker can be a movie, comic book, rock band …here is the link,  a football coach, a janitor.   The Caretaker we are honoring today gives their undivided attention to making us better.  Tirelessly, they are there for us throughout our communities and the world over.

Thank you for all that you do for all of us!  We salute you! 

Each Sunday Morning will salute a caregiver.  This Sunday I want to salute everyone who finds themselves as a caregiver.  Sometimes it is a surprise to us when we realize someone needs us.  It is unexpected.  A Big Thank you to you for stepping up!  This is what makes the world a better place every day!  The quiet active Caretakers!

 We salute you!  Please know that we are sending you a Smiley Card.  It says,” You Are Special.”  Thank you!


Best to all!  Have a Great Caring Day!

Until tomorrow, sending you a Hug!

Sending Smiles to all Mothers!!!

Sending Smiles to All Mothers!

Happy Mother’s Day!
There is but one and only one,
Whose love will fail you never.
One who lives from sun to sun,
With constant fond endeavor.
There is but one and only one.
On earth there is no other.
In heaven a noble work was done,
When God gave us a Mother.”
~ Old Irish Verse

My Message to all Mothers. This is such a special day!  Honoring all women who have held that special hand out to others and have that gift of love …always being there for us….are to be celebrated and embraced with our thank you!  With our thank you our heart goes out to you to say you deserve that special bit of our heart that will never forget all that you have done for us.  All the times you have given up your own needs and wishes to help us.

I dedicate these words to my special Mother who has been gone for many years however, continues living in my heart.  Her words and heartfelt care have always carried me through much of my life’s journey.

A Mother’s Love and Warm Heart and Hugs are such ingredients to living and make a difference in the world.  Whoever we see this Mother’s Day let us try to remember to share our smiles with all.  Our smiles ignite happiness in our world.  Send them out to the special women in our world.  Our world has so many challenges!  Many Mothers have experienced loss due to conflicts in our world.  Let’s try to touch all women with our caring smiles!

Happy Mother’s Day!  

Sending a Big Smile and Love!  

You ignite my world!

Spreadin’ Smiles – Invitation to Join and Become a Nature Reporter!

Join Us …Invitation to Spreadin’ Smiles Naturally.  Questions for you too.!

Moving to Port Angeles, Washington and opening a Store Front for all of our activities and retail goodies has been quite a wonderful experience.  My eyes have been open to a world unlike Yellowstone.

I have been working in Yellowstone for 6 years.  Loved every minute.  Woke me up to what Muir wrote about and was trying to tell us about the woods and the mountains and the special medicine that only the natural world could provide.  

For me …Over and over again and again these special years living and working in Yellowstone I began to really understand how the natural world touched people who really could not live without a hike coming up in the next few hours or few days.  Touched by those who carried a camera with them at all times to capture that special moment.  Catching a photo of a great bison near the car or a wolf running after an elk or an Osprey on her nest by the river are just a few of the many moments people share every year.  It is so amazing!  Facebook is such a great venue to keep in touch with what is happening in this special place.  If you have never been to a National Park, look for a National Park near you.  You will know what I mean when you make that special visit and not just visiting one time; moreover, many times.  You just can not spend a day without looking outside and seeing what is happening at any time of the year.

So…As I write this blog post, I have a question to ask you..

“What does the natural world mean to you? ”   Do you go outside often?

“Do you spend time taking kids outside and enjoying time discovering what you can findoutside?”  (even worms and  spiders)

“Would you and your kids have fun calling a special number and report what you find outside.  We are planning a special  Kid’s Nature Reporting Club.    We hope that you would also decide to  take a camera with you and you can then share a photo of  this special treasure and send them to us to  …                                                                                                        Experiosity Smilin’ Place.”  

Planning to create videos and a reporting map with your  findings.  We hope that many will join and help us learn about the types of animals and plants from all over.  This will be a Smilin’ Activity that people of all ages will enjoy.

 I hope you will send me your comment.  Please know your identity will be kept private.  However, we do need your email  and name so we can follow-up with you on your first contact .    Please send your comments and contact information to …                                                                                                              resilienceliving@gmail.com

We appreciate you joining us   We will also send you more inforation on our program and where to call in your nature report.  Also as a thank you, we will send your children a  picture of Chuck and Curio, our mascots.  It is our goal to reach as many children and their families to join together to share the 0utdoors where each of us live.

Please forward this post and invitation to your friends.  We  thank you!  A Big Thank You!
