What makes me Happy

To follow up on yesterday. This list was much easier to write…and I could go on and on…

  • God: thinking about him, talking to him, listening to him, singing to him.
  • My husband.
  • Sunshine.
  • Kitties.
  • Puppies.
  • Watching older married couples hold hands while walking in the grocery store.
  • Carolina Wrens.
  • When my mom sends me something, even just a little encouragement card.
  • When my dad calls me while he walks the dog.
  • A well-fitting dress or skirt.
  • Chocolate.
  • Flowers. Flowers. Flowers.
  • Pink.
  • Green.

    Hey- I’m the person who disagreed with you on Life in a Shoe, but wanted to say I like the things that make you happy. Most of those things make me happy too, except not the internet. It is useful for sure. Cable TV doesn’t make me happy either kind of like the internet (because I know how it is abused and what degrading filth and lies are displayed on them daily.)

    I was curious how old you are. I am 35 yrs with 3 children and one on the way. Would’ve liked to have had more. Let me say that having babies in your 20’s seems to be easier or at least it was for me.

    Anyway it was probably silly of me to come to Kim’s defense in the first place because she doesn’t need me to defend her mothering. She seems like a friend because I have been reading her blog for years and so … there you go. Your blog is interesting too.

    Your list makes me happy because it is so similar to what mine would be.

"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you are licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what." No idea where that last quote came from, but I like it!
