Happiness Week, Day:1

For the next 7 days {barring anything big} I want to write down at least three things a day that make me happy or fills me with gratitude.
Life can become monotonous and feel filled with frustrations so for the next week I will be intentionally looking for the beautiful.
Join me!

1. The other day I fell down the rabbit hole that is the internets and found myself watching Youtube videos of Mr. Rogers Neighborhood.
Mr. Rogers was an important part of my childhood, I have very vibrant memories of watching that show and really feeling special.
My girls heard his voice on my phone as I was watching it and were instantly sucked in.
My 10 and 5 year olds loved the show today as much as I did when I was a kiddo.
I admit to tearing up while watching it and then while watching an interview with Mr. Rogers.

2. Having moms that I can go to for questions or discussions while parenting.
I think it's so important to find other moms, whether online, in real life or even better BOTH.
To be able to share experiences {the good and the bad} and to ask for wisdom and prayer.

3. Salted Caramel Shakes.
I mentioned to K that I heard of them and they sounded good and without me asking he went out and got me one.
Let me tell ya, it did not disappoint. 
I love the combination of salty and sweet.
K is an awesome husband, he knows my sweet tooth doesn't hit often but when it does he delivers.

What is making you happy today?


  1. I love this idea! I joined in! :)

  2. I am happy because my uncle has returned to church after my aunt's death.
    My husband has a job that he likes and doesn't mind going to everyday. (I cried everyday going to mine.)
    I've been praying that God will fill my heart with love for Him. Over the last week or so, He's been revealing to me HOW MUCH HE LOVES ME. I love when He answers prayer and shows Himself that way.
    I've been praying that Dave will have favor with his boss and his boss's boss at work. His boss's boss gave him a handwritten thank-you card with a gift cert. to a restaurant for all of his hard work he's put in since their company changed from being co-owned by two companies to being solely owned by one of them. God answering prayer.
