When I was much younger, my mother was the musical director of the play, “You’re Good Man, Charlie Brown!” at East Texas State University. I remember going with her to a few of the rehearsals and one of my favorite songs to hear them rehearse was Happiness Is…
I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately. What is happiness? What brings me happiness?
This morning it’s this cup of hot cocoa and mint in one the Christmasy mugs I found in my cupboard. I seldom let myself indulge in this but I should do it more often. It brought me joy just to pour the mix into the cup! Hot Chocolate is one of the only places I actually like whipped cream but alas we are out. Spraying that Reddi Whip into this cup would have brought a lot of happiness too.

Time with my kids – as my kids get older I appreciate every second with them, whether in person, in a text, over the phone, Instagram or Snapchat. Every single glimpse I get or word I read or hear brings me joy.
Alone time with my hubby – He travels A LOT and so when he’s home and I get a few minutes here and there alone with him, will that is Happiness.
Hallmark movies!! I know they are sappy, and all the same but they can make a sad day, a hard day, a tiring day sooooo much better. Yes, I roll my eyes often but they always make me smile!
Music! Music is my favorite. Uplifting lyrics make it even better. I love all kinds of music.
This list makes me happy. I think maybe I’ll work on this a little every week. Trying to find out of the ordinary things that make me happy.
