I have seldom gotten to take part in actual happy hour since becoming a legal drinker at the age of 18…which by the way, shows how old I must be since the drinking age hasn’t been 18 for a long time. Oh well. Anyways…I never got to take part in it because of things like work and kids but now I can! In the virtual sense of course. Thanks to Otin and RxBambi!
The point is to list things I am happy about. I have lots to be happy about so here it goes…
First of all, I am happy that it’s Friday, even if it’s Friday the 13th.
I am happy that I get so many hugs & kisses every day.
I am happy that I have little people that are so happy and healthy.
I am happy that my little people love to dance and sing with me.
I am happy that I have a job that allows me to bring my little people to work with me, when necessary. Like today, when I have no daycare. I am happy that I get to bring them with me today. But, I think they are even happier. I am happy that the lady I care for is a friend and that her and the little people love each other too.
I am happy that my friends daughter, that lives out of state, came home last night for a long weekend as a surprise to her.
I am happy that tonight is pizza, popcorn and movie night. We are going to watch the movie Up. It is the one and only movie the little people have ever been to in an actual theater for and they loved it. And so did I. We have been looking forward to watching it again. I would highly recommend it for children and adults.
I am happy that we don’t have any plans this weekend which means that we can just hang at home or do something spontaneous should the opportunity arise.
I am happy that I will get to watch college football tomorrow. Go gophers!
I am happy that I will get to watch the Vikings on Sunday.
I am happy that I have a husband that is my best friend. I am happy that he supports my dreams and visions for the future. I am happy that of all the people I could be doing this mommy gig again with, it is him.
I am happy that because of grace and forgiveness I can live a happy life.
I am happy that our friends gave us fresh venison. Yum!
I am happy that farmers are getting their crops harvested.
I am happy that my good friends have restored their marriage and are happier then I have ever seen them.
I am happy that I have so many people here and in my real life that support, believe in me and love me on my journey is this life. Honestly, you people have been my sanity keeper, my voice of wisdom and responsible for giving me many laughs in my day.
I am happy that I have come so far in my life that I can now reach out to others in need. I am happy that I have a lot of love and compassion in my heart for others. I am happy that I have met so many incredible people because of it. I am happy they have made me a better person from what they have taught me.
I am happy that I still have not had a cigarette in over 7 months!!!
I am happy that in all the money we have saved in not smoking, it can go to something else that is much better for me and everyone else around me. Like maybe a treadmill? Which would really make me happy!
I am happy that I have the children and grandchildren that I do. I am happy that they treat me so well and know that I am always there for them.
I am happy that there are people out in the world that are making a difference in the lives of others. I am happy that I am learning how to be one of them.
I am happy that I am finally finding the courage to live authentically and be me instead of trying to be someone else.
I am happy that I have this place, my blog, to write and to be heard. I am happy that I have been finding my voice.
I am happy about the acceptance and love I have found here and around the blog world. It’s amazing!
I am happy I met YOU!
What are you happy about?
Hugs & Love, Lori
