Happy Thoughts...

It is time to start thinking happy thoughts...

I firmly believe we are in control of our happiness ~ I need to put it out there that happy thoughts are freely flowing...

One of our sweet daughters brought this little gem to my attention yesterday -- take a peek!


Even during our most difficult trials...there are still so many beautiful things to be smiling about!

I feel disappointed in myself that I didn't keep this as a focus over the past couple of weeks.  I was a little too busy feeling sorry for myself and dwelling on the "what if's" and the "life's not fair" thoughts.

No more...it is time to move past all of that!  I have far too many blessings to be walking about all sober and frowny!
I have an amazing husband who adores me and dances with me every single day!  I have a whole slew of sensational kids ~ each of them bring so much to my life...not a day goes by that I am not surprised by "something".  How grateful I am for this!  I am so lucky to be a mom, to have a warm home to have our family in, to have food to cook and enjoy, to have the luxuries that we are blessed with in this country.

I have been such an ungrateful little brat...I think I needed to be for a little bit of time...it was my way of dealing with the loss of our home.  It was hard, it was sad (still is) BUT I am going to look forward and not back.  Okay, I may look back, but I will do it with a smile and with thankfulness for such beautiful memories.

I am so grateful for the time that I sneak in to write my thoughts, to dump my feelings, to find myself when I am feeling lost.

I intend to KEEP SMILING because LIFE is a BEAUTIFUL THING and there is so much to be happy about!
Happy thoughts...happy thoughts....happy thoughts...
