Today is a story about family life and the odd, wonderful gifts that come out of the dysfunction. Lee Ann mines the rituals of family and gives us a beautiful ode to love, with music by John Hopkins.
It’s got a little something extra at the end, so enjoy this seven-minute love story that will both delight you and bring a wee smile to your face.
Thanks to John Hopkins of JustJohn Music for his musical handiwork that wraps the story up like it’s being finished with a bow. The musical piece at the end of today’s story was something that John sent to me several years ago after a phone call that ended with our family’s signature ritual. He’s a witty wonder and talented artist/producer. Please check out his work HERE.

Love. Changes. Everything.
"Smile and the world smiles with you." That's the motto she lives by. Lee Ann is perfectly imperfect and unabashed about it even as she strives for higher and "better" every day. Both her can-do and her foibles are as fabulous as her smile. So take a moment and breathe in Lee Ann's "hooray" for today! Ms. Hopkins is host of the podcast Hooray Weekly, founder of The Hooray Daily and Hooray Living, a speaker, writer and do-gooder, who believe-it-or-not has been a public-interest attorney and clergywoman for longer than she cares to admit. Check out her books, You Are All That: Creating a Great Life with Affirmations, and Hooray for You: 365 Get-Up-and-Go-Go Quotes for Your Year. When you write her, send along a clergy and attorney joke. She loves 'em!
