Happiness Is...

...all the little things that make me smile....
  • Bikes of all sizes covering my yard (a sign that lots of boys are playing at my house).
  • The pitching mound in our yard where Ryan pitches to Pat as often as he can.
  • My boys smiling even after tournament losses in basketball knowing that they played their best game possible.
  • Hearing thank you.
  • Ryan's coach complimenting him on how he is focused and makes great eye contact.  "Very coachable."
  • Jonathon, my little cuttle bug, cuttling with me on the couch.
  • Collin getting more confident in his reading, "I can feel my brain learning!"
  • Little boys who fall asleep on the couch after a day of playing outside.
  • Dirty pant knees after a big game of pickle with 7 boys and 2 dads.
  • Marcel refusing to follow the letter of the alphabet for show 'n tell because he really wanted to bring in Batman even though the letter of the day was K.  He has his opinions...
  • Running four miles by myself when I never thought I'd be able to run an 1/8 of a mile.
  • Friends who love my cards and ask to buy them...
  • Family.

Lynn, I love this post and may just copy it. I love the expression of gratitude. I also love the cards you made for me. I bet more would buy them! Etsy? ...Stacey
