I lost my Mother the end of March very unexpected. I can not get things back together, I cry at everything, even while writing this, however I know she would not want me to give up on myself. Her health was not the best but she really died from loneliness after losing my father 2 years ago. I live in MO & she lived in Texas close to my sisters but as usual we all get so busy with our lives that we forget...

It sounds really simple & after all it takes only "7 Steps to Happiness". I printed these off, laminated it & put it by my work space, so I can see them every day.
