Hello 2015....You have to make your own happy!!

Lately I've been thinking about what makes me happy....and it was a revelation that I have everything I need in life to make me happy but sometimes its the lack of awareness to appreciate it.

This New Year I want to enjoy every minute of living.

The most wonderful gifts from God, are my six children and without their awareness they have given me the greatest gift.....Their Love....Their Contentment....Their smiles....Their laughter.

They have taught me to recognize moments of happiness that are only mine.

Ava, our youngest grandchild has taught me about appreciating all the little magical things in life, she has taught me about being truly happy!

She has taught me that when her needs are met she is content. She brings a smile to my face and contentment in my heart.

I'm sure you've have heard the song, "Standing knee-deep in a River" (Dying of Thirst) well, I don't want to be that person, I want to "quench" my thirst for "the good life," and acknowledge the good that is already exciting in my own life. Taking the time to appreciate friends and family in my life. I want to have a grateful heart delight in laughter, reading stories to my grandchildren, making a new cookie recipe, or a new healthy soup and salad for dinner for my family, to drink the best coffee with a friend or try out a new tea sitting in my kitchen as the sun come through windows....I want to embrace all these little things that make me truly happy.

My wish for you this New Year is to find what makes you truly happy. Discover what delights you, and makes you smile....recognize it, embrace the moments of happiness that are yours and yours alone.

 I can promise you there will abundance in your life.

 Abundance in 2015

Glad, oxo
