In an effort to be more mindfully thankful I have put together a short list of happy things. Life isn’t always peachy but I have lots of sweet spots! Here are a few:
My fire place! OOOH the comfort of wood heat cannot be over estimated. I always hated having wood heat as a kid because it meant more work for us. Now, I have a strapping young son of my own and the tables have turned- MWAHAHAH! Seriously, come over here and sit by my fire. You won’t want to get up.
Kids who like baking are also a win. Who wouldn’t love sitting by said fire and having on of your very own kiddo serve up a couple of cookies or cinnamon roll to “see if it turned out right”. Yup, I am the official tester. It’s a tough job 😉
Coffee- dear, sweet, magnificent coffee…
My hubs. Yes, he is crazy. Yes, he totally makes me want to smash something on occasion. He is also one of the most giving and kindest people on the planet. I’m not even joking. The man would do anything for anyone- no, you can’t have his number and he will not be available to look at your ceiling fan. ( I get protective)
The kids- a.k.a. the crazies 🙂 They make my home a wild, hairy mess and I love them.
What makes you happy? You don’t have to have it all to have a pretty awesome life!
