What Makes Me Happy

With all of the craziness going on in our world currently, I thought I’d reflect on what makes me happy. The list isn’t in any order of importance. It’s the small things that matter, isn’t it?

  1. Hearing my children’s laughter.
  2. Texting my daily morning text to my hubby. “Morning. Love u.” And him texting back, “Morning, beautiful.”
  3. When the hubby picks me lilacs and rhodies from our backyard.
  4. Hubby’s kisses.
  5. Sharing the latest song on my playlist with my kids.
  6. Watching my two golden retrievers chase each other in circles around my couch. Best entertainment.
  7. Roasting marshmallows over the fire pit with the family.
  8. Sleeping in.
  9. Writing.
  10. Daydreaming.
  11. Listening to rain pound on my bedroom windows.
  12. Listening to my oldest son go on and on about the Marvel and DC Universe movies.
  13. Prepping dinner while watching Forensic Files.
  14. Reading a good book.
  15. Playing catch with the dogs.
  16. Talking with my parents.
  17. Texting with my siblings.
  18. Sharing funny pictures via group text with my family.
