Today, I saw a billboard that said, "Happiness is an organized closet." It was for the Container Store. So as I drove and drove, I made a list in my head of what "happiness is..." to me. Don't know if I remembered them all. Here are some...
a clean house.
being caught up on a Friday at closing time.
no snot, drool, or tears.
a fresh diaper that I did not apply.
just a few more minutes of sleep.
fresh sheets on the bed.
reading a book (even for just a minute--I 've been reading the same book for months--I can't hlep it that I like 1000-pg books).
taking a perfect photo.
being with my boys.
baby hugs (even with drool, snot, and tears).
hearing "Mama" (even when he's not referring to me).
a good song on the radio that makes you want to roll the windows down.
not wishing you were somewhere else.
not thinking that there are a million things you should be doing.
when all the laundry is clean and put away.
having an idea that gets your adrenaline pumping.
being at work and not minding that you're at work.
not having to go to work.
not having work to do.
not feeling like you're letting life pass you by with all the hurry, the worry, and the rush.
just being satisfied.
a new baby.
going to new places (with a camera).
discovering a new neighborhood/route/road-less-travelled.
the smell of fresh cut grass/rain/dust.
a good conversation about all your dreams with the one you love.
knowing where you want to be.
Anyway, these are a few things I thought of. There are many more. So, leave me a comment and let me know what "Happiness is..." to you. The one with the best response will be "featured" on my blog--wouldn't you like to be famous????
