My favorite, Mooch as “The Dude” in ABIDE

At 11:00pm & thinking about how 2 friends both lost their mothers (one Tuesday & one3 months earlier) & totally unrelated to Covid-19 yet it impacts the process. Being in the clinical field I’m critically aware of the toll this last year has taken & discuss with friends the impact on kids of all ages in ways we won’t truly grasp for a long time. And then I opened the The Secrets to Happiness & l felt truly grateful, What a nice way to end the day so thanks for the perfect message to reflect on.


Happiness is watching the kitty play with the little pink sock.
