A Big Yay for my sweet friend Natasha for starting this Happy List Saturday. I know that looking at what all makes you happy can give you just that extra boost. So I'm writing down what has made me happy this past week.
This post is sorta different not my normal HAPPY post. I have been a little down. I lost a wonderful friend from back home in Ohio. I found out last Monday and of course I just wanted to be there. The phone and computer just didn't get it. I had to deal the best I could with it. I have known this man for a long time. He watched me grow up , when I got old enough to work my first factory job , he worked there too. His children and our family all went to school together. Last year about this time his son called me to tell me he had stage 4 lung cancer. He was a fighter and not giving up. Well last week he said goodbye. A year later gone.
Then last week I ran across this quote. I loved it.
Anyone can make you smile, many people can make you cry, but it takes someone really special to make you smile with tears in your eyes.
So even as I have been sad this past week , I could smile through the tears and remember those Happy moments we shared. As also my daily life in this journey of grief I can smile through the tears in knowing I'm Happy I know God and there is the promise of Heaven forever.
I'm a wife to a very special man ~ Paul , who is just Awesome. I'm a Mommy to four wonderful , amazing children on Earth Ridge , Thaniqua , Jennifer and our Little Rainbow Baby Carly. I have four children in Heaven Riley , Little Muffin & Sweet Pea , Rosebud who I miss but know that One day we will be together. Also I have three step-children which are all in there 20's.
