The Little Things That Make Me Happy

The Little Things That Make Me Happy

* Listening to music – I love knowing that however I feel if I just put on some music it will make me smile. Music inspires me when I need it and brings back so many precious memories. Music always make me smile.

Turning into my driveway and seeing my home – it makes me happy to know that after I have been out I get to turn into the driveway and see the home that my husband and I work so hard for. It makes me so proud and happy.

* Spending time with family and friends – we all get so busy and it is often hard to catch up, but when we can spend time together it puts a smile on my face.

* Eating chocolate – what can I say….YUMMY

* Completing my daily To Do List it makes me happy to know that I have achieved what I set out to do.

* Watching my dog running around and playing with her toys – our dog Shelby is so funny (especially when she cannot see you). She never fails to make me happy.

* Sunday brunch – our very own little tradition on Sundays. My hubby makes bacon and eggs for brunch. So yummy and precious time together makes me happy.

* Looking at photos – what a fantastic way to relive our glory days, to see how far we have come and to spend time with people we miss. Cherish them, they will put a smile on your face.

* Receiving mail from our World Vision Sponsor Child – getting mail that isn’t bills is always nice. However nothing makes me happier than receiving mail from or about our sponsor child. It makes me happy to see how she is growing and learning.

The Big C

Today I wanted to share with you one of my favourite televisions shows ever.

The Big C.

In short The Big C follows the life of reserved, suburban wife and mother, Cathy Jamison, in the wake of he terminal cancer diagnosis. Cathy vows to dramatically shake up her life, and face her diagnosis while trying to find humour and happiness.

The characters became like friends to me. I laughed with them, I cried with them, and I was inspired by them.

Cathy Jamison is one incredible person, who inspired me so much with her wonderful words of wisdom.

Here are a few of my favourite words….

I Love Books: Plain Truth by Jodi Picoult

Plain Truth by Jodi Picoult

Moving seemlessly from psycholigical drama to courtroom suspense, Plain Truth is a triumph of contemporary storytelling Jodi Picoult preesents a fascinating portrait of Amish life rarely witnessed by those outside the faith – and discovers a place wheree circumstances are not always what they seem, where love meets falsehood, and where relationships grow atrong enought to transcend death.

When Ellie Hathaway decides to defend an unmarried Amish woman against the charge of the murder of her own child, the urban-savvy defence attorney finds herself caught in a clash of cultures with a peopel whose channels of justice are markedly different from he own. Plain Truth is the extraordinary story of two unforgettable women – and what happens when their disparate worlds collide.

Today I Embrace….

Today I embrace doing one little thing that I have never done before.

Today I got to hang a Christmas stocking up in our home for a child.

This is our first Christmas as Foster Carers, and we are so excited. We are very honoured and proud that the baby boy who has been in our family for three months will be sharing Christmas with us.

Today I embrace one little thing that means so much….


Organised in the Car


I am addicted to been organised. 

Not only do I have diaries, planners and notes all around.

I have baskets for everything, from my hobbies, to my things to do.

Now thanks to my latest purchase, I can now be organised in the car.

I finally have a better place to store the things I need to do when I am out and about. The front seat just wasn’t doing the job and everything used to end up on the floor. 

Lets hope this changes now.
