Happiness is . . .

  • A hot bath and a good book
  • the hubbies carefully prepared 'special' hot chocolate in bed
  • kangaroo puppies cheerfully greeting at the door
  • ~~~ fresh flowers ~~~ sigh . . . in the kitchen
  • listening to daughter, listening to "Come Thou Font"
  • a long hike into beautiful blue skies
  • thumbing through daughters wedding album I finally ordered just for me
  • finding a package in the mailbox, even if it's not for me!
  • a GREAT photo
  • imagining the summer vegie's I'll grow
  • imagining summer!
  • imagining summer with all my wanderers home from wandering!!
What happy thoughts think you?

Great thought-provoking question!
In no particular order,
the things that make me happiest:
Time with Mr. Wonderful.
Lunch with friends.
Happy Teenagers making good choices.
Planning our family camping/hiking trips this summer.
The smell of our grandson's chubby little neck!
Seeing Pikes Peak everyday.

The daughter listening to Come Thy Fount made me teary for some reason. What a lovely list.

All those same things make me happy too :)

Going to the beach with my family is one I have been thinking about a lot lately :)

Warmth and sunshine . . . we got snow again yesterday. I think here in the mountains of NC we've gotten more than you have in the valley. We're up to three feet so far this winter and I am DONE! (And this from the self-professed lover of winter!)

Lara said...

Good list. Today I'm happy for mood enhancing music. (Listening to Maynard Ferguson right now.)

Melanie said...

What a happy list! I can't wait to garden, take early morning walks and have more sunshine! :)

I'm looking forward, already, to our Newport Beach family reunion this summer.

And holding my niece's new baby at the end of this month.

And visiting my grandkids as soon as I can get away.


PS. Some daffodils by the kitchen sink will be pretty nice, too. And those are just around the corner...

What a great list!

I would love some fresh flowers right now.

I believe what one focuses on, expands...so your life is just going to keep getting better!

I love your list--except for the part about summer. Well actually I can't wait for summer since my kids will be home and we are leaving town. But I do not like the heat here in AZ during the summer months. But other things . . . laughter coming from another room where family is visiting. That is one of my favorites. Hugs. And getting to play with my grandbaby again--which won't happen until May. Boo hoo.

This was such a fun post. Right now the thought of exercising makes me happy! :)

Getting ready to start some flowers, dig up and replant my raspberries and srawberries, and, believe it or not, I look forward to mowing the lawn! And an early spring this year after three long terrible winters make me ready for spring! That makes me happy today.

I would have to agree with your list. "Come Thou Font" is one of my favorite songs.
