Thank God it’s finally Friday. Seriously, it’s been a week.
As if dealing with the behavior challenges in our home as of late wasn’t enough the mother of the woman I am a PCA for had a stroke, so she came back from her month long trip, a good 3 weeks early. On the same day that I found out that she was coming back home, I had to tell her that her almost 10 year old dog had died after a couple months of fighting cancer. This did not make me happy.
This meant I went back to work this week. This did not make the little’s happy in the least as they quite enjoyed our time at home last week. I was happy to see her and I am happy that I can be here for her. I am happy for the friendship she brings to my life.
Time to find my happy…
On the top of my list is knowing that some of the orphans in Haiti have went home to their families.How can knowing that a little child has been reunited with his/her new Mommy & Daddy, that has been waiting for him/her, not make you happy? Some have been waiting for over 2 years to be united. Talk about happiness!
As much as I still cry for those in Haiti, I am happy about the good, I have heard from people over there. I am happy that the angels that are the heart, feet and hands of God, keep on fighting for the lives of so many little one’s.
I am happy that when I wrote about my humanness in a post this week, not one of you judged me and instead showed me love & encouragement. Thank you.
If you don’t already know, I am from Minnesota and I love football. Which mean I love the Gophers & the Vikings.
I love football. And if you remember, this last fall, little lady fell in love with the game herself. And this makes me very happy!
We call Saturday’s Gopher Day. I am happy about their new outdoor stadium and hope we will get to a game next season.
We call Sunday’s or any day the Vikings play, Vikings day. Football day makes me happy period.
Playing football makes me happy. Before I got injured, my favorite thing to play was football. Even playing football in the snow is a blast. Nothing like playing tackle football in the snow, while it’s snowing. Just thinking about this makes me happy.
It’s suppose to snow this weekend…just maybe we will have to go play some football in the snow. That would make me happy.
Football & the Vikings make me happy.
So much so that we even play with a football with Vikings on it…
We make yummy food like hot wings, stuffed hot jalapeño poppers, hot red pepper & sundried tomato hummus, guacamole, fresh veggies, bloody Mary’s…ect. Just thinking about this food makes me happy.
Eating this yummy food makes me happy but making the food with my husband and the little’s for football Sunday makes me even happier.
Vikings day would not be complete for the little’s without cheeto’s. Just seeing their…
makes me happy.
Hearing them cheer makes me happy.
Of course it makes me happy when the Vikings win. But, I will admit that just watching a good football game makes me happy.
Good food & drink while watching football with people I love makes me happy.
When we beat the Cowboys last Sunday, I was very happy.
What am I saying? I was ecstatic!
I am happy that the Vikings are playing on Sunday.
I am happy that we get to cheer for another game! Look out New Orleans! Look out Sharper!
I hope that we win and make it to the Super Bowl. Now that would really make me happy.
On Wednesday, when we went to Goodwill, we found 2 kids Vikings Jerseys that are in great shape for $3. 99. I was so happy. Little lady was even happier…even though it’s purple and not pink.
I told her purple is better anyways.
Little man already has a jersey but little lady doesn’t. Last fall when little man picked his out with his birthday money, he was so happy. Little lady had a chance to buy a pink jersey with her birthday money but instead she insisted on princess pj’s. A week later, when little man put his jersey on for the Vikings first game, she cried. She wished she had gotten one.
At Christmas time, we tried to find one with some Christmas money she had. We tried to find one for her and my grandson, Aidyn. But, by this time all the stores are sold out.
So, finding the 2 Vikings jerseys the other day, made our day… Little lady spotted them first. She screamed “I see Vikings jerseys!” When I took them off the rack, she took them from me and hugged them and said “One for me and one for Aidyn!” Her joy made me so happy.
First thing yesterday morning, I mailed my grandson his jersey and paid extra so that he will get it in time for Sunday’s big game. It makes me happy that I was able to do this. I hope it makes him happy to get a special package from Grandma.
If you don’t know already, I am very excited about the games on Sunday.
I will be ecstatic if we win and make it to the Super Bowl but even if we don’t, I will still love my Vikings.
Have I told you how happy I am to watch my Vikings play football on Sunday against the Saints?
Minnesota Vikings Fight Song
Let's win this game.
Honor your name.
Go get that first down,
then get a touchdown.
Rock 'em... Sock 'em...
Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight!
Run out the score;
You'll hear us yell for more.
Skol, Vikings, let's go!
Look out Saints, here we come!
What are you happy about? Can you find your happy?
What would really make me happy, is each one of you finding your happy.
Happy weekend ya’ll!
Love & Hugs, Lori
