Happy Thoughts..

It's always so much easier for me to think about the injustice, frustrations and disappointments of life. So, I am going to a take a few moments and think about what is making me happy today.
Here's my happy list..
-I haven't yelled at Johnny today. ( I am working on that)
-The kids sat on the patio eating a snack and truly enjoyed each others company today.
-I know what is for dinner and have all the food I need to prepare it.
-Running. I have been running for a few months now. I am up to 3 miles and try to go 3-5 times a week. It really does make me happy and I've dropped two sizes!
-Evan. I love him, he's a good man.
-The hilarious jib jab video I made using the faces of my kids and my nieces and nephew.
-Tomorrows forecast calls for a cool down. Hurray!! Maybe it will actually feel like Fall.(oops, I think that was a complaint in disguise)
-When Pearl dances to Ancient Faith radio. That kid will dance to anything!
-My dishwasher.
-The library which is in walking distance and is loved by my children.
-Happy noises filling my house.

Glory to God for all things!

Hurray for these blessings. It's good to stop and publicly count them now and then.

Hey Annie, thanks for reminding me of the myriad of simple things in life I over look all day long. Now I love running too so you HAVE to tell me when you find time to do it.

Yay, you're back! It was so nice to look through your blog and see new posts and "catch up" with you. Cute kids and a very nice list. Way to go on the running. I'm feeling very lazy as of late.

Yay! Very nice list, although this made me giggle:

I haven't yelled at Johnny today. ( I am working on that)


I know you meant that you are working on *not* yelling at Johnny, but the idea of you searching for a time to yell at him made me grin!

Happy, happy Wednesday!
