Things that make me happy…
Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015


I was bleary-eyed this morning until I looked at my little desk companion here. Her arms were busy lifting up and down. Her only purpose—to make me smile. I’m not one of those who loves a clean desk, as you can see. I need clutter and little gadgets and toys. They all make my desk feel lived in and cozy. It’s a welcoming place, not a sterile one.

Which got me thinking about the things that make me happy, in general. I’ll list the first ones that pop into my head. Then I’d love for you to share yours!

Things that make me happy…. hearing the three girls giggling together, a cup of coffee on the porch with my dd, the fresh smell of a newly made bed, the wave of ladybugs from my flowery friend, a really spicy meal, reaching THE END in a story, giving one of my girls a piece of jewelry I made and seeing them wear it again and again, following a sign along the road to discover something I haven’t seen before, finding treasure at the flea market.

It’s not long. Most are simple things. Now, how about you?

    Hearing my great nephew giggle and tell me he “wuvs me”, spending time with my parents, cuddling with the dogs on a cold night, baking the perfect cookies and sharing them with family.

    Hearing my 3 yr old great-granddaughter tell me I’m her best friend and that she loves her Wowie (yes, that is what she calls me). Having her put her sweet face next to mine and just giggle for no reason except she’s happy.
    Being retired and able to be at home with my husband of almost 45 years. We’re having a wonderful time just being together.
    Emailing and connecting with all the authors of these wonderful books that I constantly read. They’re actually real people too. Imagine that 😆

    Talking to my family. Seeing how smart my daughter is. The smell of fresh bread. Glad to live another day. Reading a book, letting it take me to places I didn’t know I wanted to go

    My new day-job, all three of my guys safe at home, and big, fat, fluffy snowflakes falling from the sky. 😀

    My fur baby make me happy and being with friends but reading, at least for now, is the #1 thing that makes me happy, and sad and whatever else a good author wants to make me feel. 🙂
