Join us for a month of writing!
Sunday was just a gray, cold, rainy, windy day.
It was also my birthday. And there was a little sunshine.
My parents left to return home after a weeklong visit,
I found my happy in all the new memories made.
After a weekend of celebrating with my family,
I found my happy in a nap on the couch.
My husband went grocery shopping this afternoon,
I found my happy in only having to put the food away.
We ordered in Chinese food for my birthday dinner,
I found my happy in the delicious crab rangoon.
I watched a half an hour "birthday" circus show presented by my two girls,
I found my happy in the singing and dancing of "Happy Birthday" on the high wire.
After an enjoyable but busy nine days home with my girls,
I found my happy in transitioning back to our routine ... and early to bed.
As we return to our schedule, think about the next birthdays to come,
I will continue to look for the sunshine and my happy in every day.
Thank you Stacey and Kim for the "find your happy" slice inspiration! Some days we need to dig deep and find our happy ... to celebrate, write a list, even if it's the little things. Even on a gray yucky day that happens to be your birthday, there is so much to be happy about!
Early to bed preparing for a new week
