Xena The Warrior Puppy ASPCA Dog of the Year

Jonny began exhibiting symptoms of Autism early on in his life. Sometimes, when his father would bring him to the deli to pick up meat, Jonny’s dad would place his order, and Jonny would begin screaming at the top of his lungs. Among other things, food gave him a great deal of anxiety. Additionally, the little boy would have almost no interaction whatsoever with the family dogs the Hickeys had at the time.

The family’s situation, as it is for so many other families, was stressful and challenging – they just wanted a way to help improve their son’s life. Then something amazing happened.

A terribly emaciated and near death Pit Bull had been found. She was near death. The rescue organization responsible for her care felt that she was in need…

funny good morning quotes-4

“When you really want something

Sometimes you have to swim deeper.

You can’t give up just because

things don’t come easy.

You have to overcome the obstacles

and face fears.

But in the end, it’s all worth while.

Life is full of ups and downs

But if you believe in yourself,

You will always come through

with flying colors.

Value Friendship, Love and Faith.

Have A Good Day!

Wishing you a Happy Friday

Have a great day!  Peace, love, bliss-Tammy

Be Happy Now-Simple Ways to Quickly Lift Your Spirits


Singer-songwriter Pharell Williams, whose infectious hit song, “Happy,” has spread joy worldwide, seems to know the secret to happiness.  More than 1,500 people from 140-plus countries have posted their own happy video spinoffs at WeAreHappyFrom.com, inspired by his daylong music video featuring Los Angeles residents from all walks of life dancing and lip-syncing to the tune.


Can happiness really be just a finger snap away?  It depends on our unit of measurement–a moment versus a lifetime.  Research by such authorities as Psychologist Martin Seligman, Ph.D., director of the University of Pennsylvania Positive Psychology Center, suggests that several basic ingredients are keys to long-term happiness, including a sense of purpose, engaging activities, quality relationships and achievable goals.  Ultimately, happiness is a subjective state, gauged only by personal perception.

Still, there are quick, simple things we can do to shift our mood into a higher gear, according to Jonathan Robinson, author of Find Happiness Now: 50 Shortcuts for Bringing More Love, Balance, and Joy Into Your Life.  “Broadly, happiness shortcuts fall into two categories-those that help in letting go of negative emotions and those that help in tuning into or expanding positive feelings” says Robinson.  “The end result is the same.”

Practice gratitude.  When the day’s affronts seem excessive, we can reframe them by counting our blessings mentally or in a journal.  Review the day with an eye to everything that went right.  “Soon, you’ll start to see everything as a gift,” observes Robinson.

Pencil it in.  Take a few moments at the start of each week to block out a little time every day for happy activities.

Pay it forward.  It doesn’t take much to make someone’s day, advises Robinson.  Give someone a compliment or a piece of chocolate and watch their attitude instantly change, which in turn lifts your into their happy cloud.

Sing and dance.  Williams applies this secret:  Moving our bodies and vibrating our vocal chords helps shake us out of our mental cages.  “It’s hard to feel bad when you sing.  It’s a choice:  You can stay angry for four hours or sing for 15 seconds,”  Robinson notes.

Don’t underestimate the power of a simple jumpstart to happiness.  Research from the University of Arizona shows that as little as a forced smile not only releases stress-fighting neuropeptides and mood-lifting serotonin in the brain, it activates a chain reaction of happiness around us.
