Hi, Happy Asses! It’s Karen, and oh my, do we have some juicy stuff to dive into today on 'My Happy Ass Life.' Just so you know, a dog just sauntered past me and I had to do a double-take—what a way to start the day! I’m overjoyed you’re here with me this morning (or whatever time it is for you).

Today’s Sizzling Topic is radical Hospitality. My mind has been buzzing nonstop with thoughts about this, especially after an incredible sermon I heard this Sunday by Pastor Amy at the United Methodist Church in Point Washington. She spoke about radical hospitality and extravagant generosity, and let me tell you, those words struck a chord.
What’s Cooking in Today’s Episode:
  • Radical Hospitality in Real Life: The most intense and true form of hospitality I’ve ever seen? The rooms of AA. It’s there that people offer their hearts and hands to others unconditionally.
  • The Gift of Giving Freely: This concept of extravagant generosity is intertwined with hospitality. It’s all about giving without expecting anything in return, enriching our lives as we enrich others.
A Heart-to-Heart: I was flipping through my late husband Hugh’s Big Book from AA today—it's filled to the brim with notes and highlights. He used to jot down thoughts about folks he was helping, like this guy I’ll call Bill. Bill was almost part of the furniture at our place, struggling to grasp the deeper parts of his journey. Hugh’s notes were a promise never to stop caring—a promise of radical hospitality.


Today’s Special Share: Instead of our usual affirmation, I will read something deeply special—the promises of AA, which were so dear to Hugh. These promises encapsulate the hope and transformation that come from deep, meaningful efforts to reach out and support others.
Wrapping It Up With Love: Let’s live out radical hospitality in every corner of our lives.


Whether in church, at an AA meeting, running our businesses, or in everyday encounters, let’s overwhelm every space with love, acceptance, and kindness. We give what we wish to receive; in that giving, we change lives—ours included.


Thanks for tuning in to ‘My Happy Ass Life.’ Inspired to spread that radical hospitality? I hope you are because when we give love, we live to love. Stay sweet, stay strong, and till next time, keep shining your light, my happy asses! Bye, y’all!
