Happiness Is...

I don't usually struggle with my blog posts. But yesterday was a sad day for me. One of my very best friends found out that her cancer has returned. This made me very, very sad. I know that Susan is a strong woman with a strong faith, and she will handle this with the help of God, her family and friends. As her friend, I feel so helpless. I want to take this away from her--but I cannot. I will pray hard --and I am asking you to do so also please. Because of my sadness, I decided to do a blog post that would make me (and hopefully Susan) smile. I hope you smile also! Pictured above is one of my favorite roses, Veterans Honor. Happiness is seeing a gorgeous rose in our yard (as well as having it AND smelling it on our dining room table).

Happiness is seeing this little Chickadee (and all of my birds) come to my feeders.

Happiness is my GRANDCHILDREN..... (Yes-Yes-Yes!!!)

Happiness is being taken to a romantic cabin in the mountains for a surprise birthday trip--and allowing me to take a snooze!!!

Happiness is going to our favorite place (Mt. Nebo, Arkansas) and seeing a gorgeous sunset. (We're going back there next week to celebrate George's birthday! Yeah!)

Happiness is getting out in nature to do some hiking --and search for more waterfalls.

Happiness is seeing a new waterfall.. (This one is DeSota Falls near Fort Payne, Alabama.)

And my very BEST Happiness is my wonderful husband, George. "You are my life, Sweetheart. Thanks for letting me cry on your shoulder yesterday."

There are so many things in this life that make us happy. Today I just needed to share some of mine with you. Love you, Susan.
