I am so glad to be back in the groove of things. I'm feeling so much better and have been soaking up any little bit of happiness I can find.
Happiness is celebrating feeling better with a flower that I have not smelled since I left home 14 years ago. Oh how I long for blue water and soft sandy beaches.
Happiness is this crazy bunch of people who have become family. Family is always there for each other.
Happiness is a nice cloudy day that makes for a cool walk home from school. And helping my neighbors out. Sometimes I have all kinds of kids walking home with me. I love it!
Happiness is my dogs. You knew this was coming right? I am so happy I have them. Even if the little one is old and grumpy.
Happiness is knowing that even though he will most likely be euthanized, he let me sit with him and love him. This guy had wounds all over his body from what I'm guessing was a dog fight. I scratched his ears and he rested his head in my lap for a good while. I hope felt my love and even if it was just for a few minutes.
Happiness is finding this little note in my recipe binder. This was the last package and recipe that Dad ever sent me. I have the box of spices still wrapped in my pantry. I know I should have used them but I can't bring myself to. Who knows how long it will sit there on the shelf. But when I'm moving stuff around and see his handwriting on the box it always makes me smile.
