Yesterday was international happiness day. Isn’t it wonderful that there is a day celebrating happiness in every country in the world simultaneously. Sharing Happy who thought of that? I love it ♥ I will try and keep this from being a smushy mushy gush fest of joy and gratitude. There are so many things in my life that bring me happiness. I will spare you a mile long list and just mention a few. I think it is important to pause and appreciate all of the things that make us happy. I feel happiness and gratitude are two peas in a pod, they go hand in hand.
My Mother, she is the reason I am here
My husband, he is the keeper of my heart, my soul mate, my happy place
All of my beautiful family those of my blood and those that are not, all of them are family. Family is love and that is happiness
My friends old and new and my wonderful internet family and bloggy friends too
Hugs those from our grandchildren are filled with extra happiness
Our sweet Izzy, he brings happy with every tail wag
Love in all its forms, it is pure happy
My five senses (and the sixth one that I am only now mentioning and may not again)
My body and health although it is far from perfect
Our home, it is my favorite place to be
My mind and the ability to speak it
The beauty that surrounds me in various ways every day
Rainy days, I love the rain and the rainbows that often follow. I dare you to try and be unhappy when you see a rainbow
Grass under my bare feet
Sandy beaches and ocean breezes
Lunches with my daughter, they are happy memory makers
Music, there is a song in my heart and there is always a song in my life somewhere.
Technology for making it possible to share my happy with you
Books, movies and television shows yes they are part of my happy
Working from home, I am a great boss
Acts of kindness, happy flows over me when I participate or witness random acts of awesome
My ridiculous laugh, because it may be goofy but it is the way my happiness shouts
Most importantly God, I am a child of God and without him there would be no happy for me at all.
My Life, Every aspect of it, all of the extraordinary and all of the unremarkable it is where you will find my happiness
Now I could truly keep going and going and going…but you have your own happy to be grateful for and…
I hope you will share a few of the things that make you happy in the comments.
Thank you to all of my wonderful bloggy friends and family for your love, concern, prayers and support. I received my MRI results-, spondylolthesis, arthritis and two small cysts on my nerves in my lower back and hip. It may not sound like good news to you. But we were preparing ourselves for a much different outcome. As I sit here in the living room writing this list with my heating pad firmly pressed up against my back I can say “ I am happy”.♥
Enjoy your weekend my sweet bloggy friends and I truly hope it is filled with happy♥
