What Makes YOU Happy

What makes You happy ??

Wow that's a tough question sometimes .............

Yesterday I was on Facebook & one of my friends was having a rough day. I added a comment & so we chatted for a little. Later on after all the kids & Dad went to bed I get my what I call my Mommy time w/out all the chatter & someone always wanting something , LOL. I wanted to write something on my blog but was just to tired. I ended up staying up like usual until midnite. My little Jennifer was coughing so I ended up putting her on the couch & gave her medicine. I usually watch General Hospital on Soapnet at 10pm & then play on the computer. Anyway I got thinking about the chat from the afternoon , What makes you happy ????

Well when I was a Kid it was candy & toys & staying w/my grandparents in the summertime. You know when you were young it didn't take much.

When I was in High school it was going to the mall or hanging out w/friends, parties etc..........

Well now that I have grown up it seems like the things I thought really made me happy don't matter that much anymore like shopping & always doing something I loved. Now I'm a wife & a Mom & just being w/family makes me happy. I would have to also say that GOD makes me happy. I thought of a couple verses from the Bible too.

I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances Philippians 4 : 11

He who heeds the word wisely will find good, And whoever trusts in the LORD happy is he. Proverbs 16 : 20

You know whatever the day brings I try to be happy cause everything comes from the LORD. So just knowing the LORD & being thankful for all he has blessed my life with makes me happy. Yes I have had my share of sad times but I know that happiness is just a journey not a destination.

Hoping you have a great day . HUGS :)

I agree, just being with my family makes me happy. Knowing I've pleased the Lord makes me happy too. :)
