Motherhood = going crazy one day at a time!

Happiness

Be like the bird, who
Halting in his flight
On limb too slight
Feels it give way beneath him,
Yet sings
Knowing he hath wings.



By Victor Hugo



My mate, Sarah Nelson, posted this poem on her blog and it made me start thinking about things. Things that I'm grateful for and things that make me happy and also blessings I have in my life.

Then my other mate, Kayla, decided to post some things she loves, which was really entertaining and made me think.

So I'm going to join in and write a few things that I love.



*I love being in another room and hearing both my children laughing really loudly.

*I love it when I tickle Dru and he screams like a little girl (sorry Dru had to do it)

*I love the feeling I have when I've done a huge work out and have eaten really well all day.

*I love hearing about funny and successful stories of other people.

*I love lying all snuggly in bed while listening to the rain pouring outside.

*I love the smell of fresh cut grass after I've finished sweating for half an hour mowing it!

*I love the satisfaction of making something for my family and them all wanting second helpings!

*I love the feeling of watching someone open a present I've brought them, knowing they're going to love it.

*I love the 'a-ha' moments I get whilst reading a really good book.

*I love it when I make a really good point and Dru has to agree with me! (This is only because he is uaually right!)

Thanks for the inspiration Sarah and Kayla!!

Great post Melissa! I feel the same way about just about everything you mentioned...all really good things. Fun to think about.

Dru giggles like a girl?! That's going to go down with "You don't cry when you're tired!" LOL!!!
