As part of the happiness project over at seven cherubs, I had been logging a happy moment from each day - a one sentence happiness journal. When the laptop and media centre died, I lost track of it. But since I like to see things through - here is my month of looking at the sunny side of things...
Its not the act of baking that makes me happy, but the knowledge that I'm doing something that makes the ones I love happy. Its an act of love.
I'm happy in the knowledge that I have surrounded myself with genuine friends. Ones that prop me up when I'm at risk of falling.
Happy that I can push myself to exercise, even though I wasn't feeling up to it.
Today is my birthday. I am happy that I have so many that love me, and even though I am very sad that my father is no longer here to celebrate this day with me, knowledge that he loves me, and is looking down on me today.
Oh Google Latitute, I <3 you! Happiness today is knowing where J is on the road without having to harrass him for updates.
Happiness is having both your babies home! School holidays have begun!
My friends make me happy. Having such wonderful people here today to help me celebrate my birthday, have made me remember how blessed I am to have friends like them.
Happiness today is the laptop surviving a glass of coke spilling over it!
I am very happy to realise that even though we are struggling, we are not down and out.
Routines make me happy.
What makes me happy today? The fact that my husband made it home safe after 17hours at work and then a 1+hr drive home.
Being woken up after falling asleep on the couch by A shaking my face saying "Wake up Mummy!" makes me happy. So very cute, and funny.
Family time makes me happy. Good Friday and J has the day off. Its been a wonderful time having him home.
Having knitting/crocheting skills makes me happy. Finishing an item that Im really happy with boosts my self esteem and I take alot of pride in my work.
Baking for others makes me happy.
Today, I am happy as I am free. Lest we forget.
School holidays make me happy. I love spending time with my boys.
Mummy free time makes me happy. Distance makes the heart grow fonder, and geez I miss the kids when they aren't here!
I am happy knowing that even on the tough days, I know there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Being able to look after my sick child makes me happy. I am very thankful that I have been given the gift of being a stay at home mum and not worry about work.
Saturdays make me happy. The weekend, family time, these are the things that happiness is made of.
My hubby makes me happy. I love being his wife.
Happiness is a school morning that runs like clockwork.
Happiness... Uhhh, today would be knowing that I'm not as reliant on technology as I thought I was.
I am happy that I am here.
My hubby's work ethic makes me happy and proud. Happiness is knowing that he loves us so much that he is willing to work insane hours just to keep this little family ticking over.
The end of the week makes me happy.
My boy's make me happy. They are such gorgeous little ones!
Happiness is being the Mother to two amazing little boys.
Being frugal makes me happy!
I am happy that my usual bad luck of 10 and 5 did not eventuate this year!
