Mr Happy Man

Sometimes the words and questions of children are the most profound. One of the memories I have was asking my mom if God would prevent good people who were not Catholic from getting into Heaven and not-so-good people who were Catholic a way to get to Heaven.

John Lennon - Happiness Quote - 07.

I’ve had this video listed in my bookmarks for ages, I thought it was about time I posted it! I’ve never met anyone so full of happiness like Johnny Barnes or have ever felt that kind of happiness myself, but I absolutely admire the man for being true to himself, and living out whatever comes naturally to him.  He’s clearly an inspiration and has a wonderful effect on his neighbourhood – what a lovely sweet man, and what dedication! ♥

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and spent the last 14 years teaching in an incrediable hybrid school setting. My dissertation topic and research were how teachers experience becoming who teachers, as human subjects. For me, teaching is a calling and vocation that allows me to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what will call me. We have begun a small consulting and leadership firm called Rocky River Leadership & Consulting Ltd.

  4. Neuroscience says we humans handle 60,000 thoughts a day on average, that is one a second. We must then let 59,900 plus fade into oblivion.

    So why do small snippets like your mom, intuitively knowing more about life than the Catholic Church, stick.

    Why do we remember small things, as well as enormously emotional events?
