Last week I wasn't feeling very well,(normal flu stuff), and all I wanted to do was hug my blanket and lay on the couch. So I did!
I felt like I was always 20 seconds late on every conversation...and you know for yourself when you're sick, that you're in your own little world.
When I did get back to reading my blog and some of your posts, I found a very special gift waiting for me from Hope , an award for just making her smile.
I did that,... such a huge compliment to me, thank you Hope!
Hope had said on her blog that "sometimes, happy finds you," I know that to be true, and I also know that happy always floats up,
just like Hope.
So now, according to the rules, I get to list 10 things which make me happy before passing the award on to others.
I guess I'm ready now;
10 Things That Make Me Happy!
We've been married for almost 39 years( I was a child bride of nine ) He's like the other half of me, always looking out for me.
He's just the cheese to my macaroni.
2. My kids;
Bob, Kevin and Julie.
Adults now themselves, but they never make me feel like they don't need me, and in a good way!
Even though I live far away from some, they never make me feel out of touch.
My blogy friends have added a real richness to my life. When I'm feeling particularly isolated, one of you is always around to make me smile and I thank you for that!
4. My Firkids;
AKA, Gracie and Winston.
My two cats make me smile every day of my life and what a gift that is. They jump on the bed to wake me up in the morning and follow me around like my dog used too.
5. My Ipod
One of my children gave me an Ipod for Christmas last year and I have had a lot of hours of pure joy listening to it! I do sometimes embarrass myself by singing out loud while listening, and of course I forget that I'm the only one that can hear the music. Maybe that's why my son gave me an Ipod player this year for a gift, so that my concert for one would end!
6. Wii; (Nintendo gaming system)
My daughter gave my husband and I a Wii gaming system for Christmas. When we opened her gift, we looked at each other and was kind of embarrassed that we might have opened the wrong gift. Julie was so animated about it that we got excited with her. I never thought that it would be part of my everyday life.
Well who knew , we all love it! I train on it almost everyday(except the first two weeks when I was continually sore)
No kidding, it makes me smile and it's fun even for old farts like me!
Well, I only have the dream of having grandchildren right now,... but that's enough to bring a smile to my face. I can wait!
Anybody who lives where it gets cold for extended periods, knows how happy the thought of Spring makes you feel! This time of year the itch for spring is rampant around here.
Anytime and place.
10. Dark Chocolate;
I would still be happy with milk chocolate, but I am almost
Well that's my ten for today, who knows what tomorrow will bring. That's the great thing about life though!
According to Hope, there are no rules as to how many people I can give this award to. So I choose to offer it to all of you.
God knows that I've gotten so many smiles from you.
So If you're interested at all in disclosing what makes the corners of your lips turn up,... then please consider yourself tagged by me for this sweet award.
So come on, you know you want to. Pick up the award at my place and then list the 10 things that make you smile.
