Five things that make me happy.

First of all, I spend most of my time in a state of gratitude and happiness. Somewhere along the way I learned that life is gift. I value that gift and try to make the most of it. Happiness, as we know, is a choice. So why choose anything else. You should know that I have a tendency to state the obvious. ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyways, here’s my list:

  1. I have two beautiful daughters who’ve both reached adulthood. When they tell me that they love me, I light up inside like the proverbial Christmas tree. Those three words are all I’ll ever need from them – ever. The same goes for my husband. ๐Ÿ™‚
  2. I talk daily with my mother and a few of my sisters through our Facebook chat group. I check in first thing every morning to see what everyone’s up to. I love our group. They are my number one supporters and I’m lucky to have them. ๐Ÿ™‚
  3. I love blogging of course – my reason for being here. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love sharing my poems, and I love reading what others are writing. I love connecting with my fellow bloggers on a daily basis. I would love to read everyone’s blog daily, but time not permitting, I read as many as I can. There’s so much talent here that it’s often humbling.
  4. I’m a homebody so I love spending time at home. I love to travel as well, but it’s always great to be home again. This Sunday past, as I was sitting at home and reading a few blogs or more, I saw a notification from WP that I’d received my first 1000 likes. As you can imagine, that made me very happy. ๐Ÿ™‚ I have a really small blog which remained in almost complete obscurity until about 6 months ago. So the likes are a testament to my community’s loyalty. A huge shout out to all of you!!!
  5. I also happen to love stand-up comedy. I can’t help but love people with a sense of humor.You can’t go wrong with a good laugh. So, I thought I’d share 2 funny videos. ๐Ÿ™‚



Now 5 songs that make me happy in no particular order. ๐Ÿ™‚



In honor of my first 1000 likes (why not), I’m going to leave this open for anyone in my community who’d like to pick up the tag, and create their own post of happiness. You’ve all made me very happy! I also hope you have as much fun as I did. ๐Ÿ™‚ And remember, you guys are awesome!

you are awesome

    1. Me too. I never tire of listening to him. I remember once, when I took the time to sit and watch one his entire routines, I nearly fell out of my chair. I was choking in laughter. He remains one of my favorite stand-up comedians. ๐Ÿ™‚ Wishing you a fantastic day!

  2. I made it 50 seconds into the Ananau video and I was smiling ear to ear. ๐Ÿ™‚ At about 2 minutes when they show the little kid dancing in the audience…adorable!
