Happy Birthday Grandma

I always found it befitting that Easter would fall on my Grandma’s birthday who would be 94 this year.   Devote Catholic faith running through her veins,  she would go all out of Easter; Italians cookies, frosted sweet bread, and the holiday ham.  

We would head to  the especially longer mass across the street from her house then all her brothers and sisters that lived close would come over.  Followed by cousins, neices, and nephews, children, grand children, and finally great grand children.   

Her home was always open to those she loved or those in need.  I lived in her home more days than any other dwelling in various points of my life.  

My grandma…Lived her whole life in Utica and lived and entire life of love for her family.  

“It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known.”  Charles Dickens

Happy Birthday Gram.

I was near the end of 2017 when I realized that my life was totally out of balance. I was 30 and I was working my life away. I did not have strong relationships with my wife, family, or friends. It was around this time that I came across THE HAPPINESS PROJECT by Gretchen Rubin. It was then that I decided to launch my own year long project towards personal happiness for the entire year of 2017.
