Thank God it’s Friday and time for…
I am still dealing with the nasty after taste of the latest shit sandwich, so this may be difficult. I have been known to smile while holding a shit sandwich in my hands but this week, not so much.
Maybe I should just pour myself a vodka tonic and call it a day? Or not? Not.
I have crawled out from under my rock to find my happy. I think this is what the good doctor would order. Here’s to putting on my big girl panties and finding my happy…
I am happy…
…that I got an early morning phone call from this guy(my 20 year old son)that lives in Florida, just to say he loves me. And no he wasn’t asking for anything. This made my day.
…that this guy(my eldest son), who is laid off for the winter is so willing to care for the little’s when ever we need him to fill in. I am also happy that every once in awhile he stays after I get home and drinks a couple glasses of wine with me. I am happy that even though his friends give him shit for these things, he is not embarrassed to hang out with his mom and take care of 2 little people that adore him.
I am happy for my cell phone and computer that keeps me in contact with my sweet adorable granddaughter from Florida…
I am happy that she does so well in school and that she has parents that care so much about her. I am happy that I get to be her grandma.
And of course with her mom(my eldest) and my son-in-law too. I am happy that she is a teacher and cares so much about the children she teaches. I am happy she is married to such a great guy.
And my daughter and her boyfriend in Idaho. I am happy that she is pursuing her dreams and having a fun time while doing it. I am happy that she found someone to enjoy these adventures with .
I am happy that her adventures lead her to snowboard in the mountains and to beautiful places like this…
I am happy to see video’s like this , of my grandson that lives in Florida. Just seeing this makes me smile. I am so happy to be his grandma.
I am happy that this wonderful daughter of mine is his mother…
I am happy that she has been discovering herself and all her many talents & gifts. I am happy that she got to be home recently, even if it was too short.
I am happy that I don’t have to be outside working in these below 0 temperatures.
I am happy that our vehicles have started every day in the cold.
I am happy that it is suppose to make it to double digits come Sunday! Yippy!
I am happy that the friend I am a PCA for is finally getting to take a vacation. Her brother is taking her on a month long get away which they left for today. Even though I will miss her and that this means I will not have income for a month, I am still very happy for what this trip will do for her and her spirits.
I am happy that my husband supports me in doing as little as possible today, since I am off of work and at home with the little’s. Which of course means I won’t just be doing nothing but it does mean I have given myself a free pass to not “see” the “what could/should be done but can wait until tomorrow, when maybe I’m not so exhausted” kinds of things. And not feel guilty about it.
I am happy that the little’s are doing much better and that our home is finding it’s way back to normal living. I am happy they are starting to cling less, and are acting like the secure happy little people I know them to be. I am happy they are finding their happy once again.
I am happy for the grace that heals and teaches me lessons so that I can pull myself back up, brush myself off and continue to move forward in this life.
I am happy because courage and resiliency (the words I claimed for ‘09) seen me through 2009 and into 2010. I am happy that because of courage and my resiliency, I am not kept down and I always choose to get back up.
I am happy that even though times look or seem really tough, I know we will get through.
I am happy and thankful for all the support YOU each gave me this past week in regards to my last post. Seriously, YOU made all the difference.
I am happy that I chose to participate in Happy Hour Friday so that I could find my happy.
I found it! I found my happy.
Cheers to all of you that choose to find your happy even when it’s hard to find or your just not feeling it.
I hope you find your happy today.
Happy Friday. Hope you have a good weekend and that you and yours stay warm in this cold that seems to be hitting a lot of us.
Love & Hugs, Lori
