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.

 It's The Little Things



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….

LIFE - Love Inspiring Friends Everywhere

It ‘s amazing what a year can do….

A Year

I came across this quote some time ago and never thought much of it.

It wasn’t until I saw it again after visiting a dear friend that I really thought about it.

The friend I was visiting has only been in my life for a little over a year now and I don’t know what I would do without her. Not only has she been a wonderful support to me, we always have a great time together chatting and laughing over a cup of coffee.

I am very lucky to have her in my life.

It also got me thinking about a friend who was a huge part of my life and now I hardly ever see. While I am sad, I understand we both have different lives now.

I will always be grateful for our times together.

It’s amazing what a year can do.

I Know

I Know

I am so sad

and I don’t know why.

It seems that whatever I do

I just want to cry.

I don’t know why

I feel this way.

I realise that you

just could not stay.

I loved you so much

you know it’s true.

But forever I will

be missing you.

And every time that

I shed a tear.

I do know why

because you are not here.
