Happiness Is A Choice


I was trolling my Facebook news feed looking for some inspiration for today's post.  The past several days have seen an uptick in the number of posts to the Thyroid Cancer Survivors page; a page that I follow, being a survivor and all.  Holidays for so many people are more chore than cheer, and it … Continue reading Happiness Is A Choice
