There are things in this life that make me happy, and there are people in my life that bring me such joy.
It’s not the monumental events and grandiose gestures that mean the most though… it’s the little things.
Like when Wee One puts her arms around me and says “You’re so beautiful, Mom”, even when I’m still wiping sleep from my eyes in the darkness of early morning and know her idea of beauty will be changing in due time.
Getting a genuine smile and sharing a joke with the Teen… and when she unexpectedly puts her arms around me and her head on my shoulder. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, all is right with the world.
It’s things like Sadie putting her head on my knee and gazing up into my eyes, her stub of a tail flickering gently, and expecting nothing more than some love in return.
A lingering touch from the Hubby.
Sharing evenings with the best friends I’ve ever had, knowing that they love me every bit as much as I love them. Their laughter shining in their eyes, and their solid, comforting arms…
Our voices blending together, making such wonderful music…
ShaMoo and J-B, who began haiku-ing (and then blogging with me!) simply to make me happy? It does, you guys. You have no idea.
And this blog… and all of you. Whatever this is… all of this is what makes me happy. I’m a very lucky woman, and I know it.
