Things that make me happy

I have been hearing so many sad things around the blog world this week, I really wanted to reflect on what makes me happy. I have been blessed with so much, but it is easy to forget sometimes. So here you go:

1. The big hug and cuddles I get from Miss H first thing in the morning when I get her out of her crib.

2. Baby B's big stretch and smile when I unwrap her from her swaddle blanket in the morning.

3. Listening to my husband wrapping Christmas gifts upstairs.

4.  Knowing how lucky I am to have such beautiful, happy, healthy, loving children.

5. Bare Escentuals Happiness Collection

6. Holding and rocking Baby B to sleep. I love how she snuggles up against me. It must be such a wonderful way to drift off to sleep.

7. Singing Christmas carols along (poorly) with the radio. And when I don't sing, hearing Miss H in the back seat say, "Sing Mommy!"

8. Talking to my sister on the phone.

9. Talking to anyone on the phone (did I mention I don't get a lot of adult interaction.)

10. Going to sleep with a happy heart and a prayer of thanksgiving.

What makes you happy?

Oh, I like this uplifting post for a change. I try to keep my blog up beat too because there is so much sadness it seems in the blogosphere. Let's see, things that make me happy: my husband and my pets, blogging, teaching Sunday School, being comfy in the bed and getting a good night's sleep, buying gifts for others, watching a good movie and warm sunny days.

Visiting from SITS.

Hi there! Visiting MBC! I'm a new follower...I'd love for you to come follow me! My blog is a little of everything..freebies, coupons, recipes (I'm a Racheal Ray wannabe), sometimes kids crafts.

Your post made me smile. My husband teases me that he feels sorry for telemarketers because I keep them on the phone for 1/2 hour (I don't get too much adult interaction either) LOL!!! Cute blog!
