Happiness is Fragile

When you are healthy, it's easier to be happy. You look around you and think that you will be able to pull yourself up my your bootstraps when things go wrong but it's not that easy.


 In fact...it's downright HARD!!!

I splurged when Bath and Body had a 'buy one get one free' deal AND free shipping and got a nice supply of bubble bath. I love the Eucalyptus Spearmint and Lavender Vanilla scents best. 


What's your favorite bath scent?


My husband is feeling much better and I feel good too. Thank you ALL so much for your prayers. What a difference they've made. I am humbled by your friendship and love.


I’m joining Thankful Thursdays.

Great news! Onward!.....

I am so glad to hear that. My mom and I were talking about quickly life can change. She fell a few years ago and while she recovered quickly, she has not quite been the same. We should not take one moment of good health for granted. That is why I love seeing your nature walk pictures. It is a reminder to get out there myself and enjoy the simple pleasures!

Arlene Grimm said...

So glad you and your sweet husband are feeling better. I love all Bath and Body works products but I am not familiar with that product. I do need to go to the mall and pick up my spring/s summer scents in soap. I still have SNOW in my guest bath!!lol

Jeanie said...

This is indeed good news. The prayers and love don't stop just because the news is better! I'm glad you have a mini-spa in which to relax and smell very good indeed!

Tanya Breese said...

i am so happy to hear he is doing better! i am sure the scents you chose would be my favorites too!

Sweet Diane, You said it...happiness is fragile. Our health plays a huge part in our happiness. When I say my prayers, I ask that God will let my families be happy and healthy. The older I get the more aware I become of having good health. Even at that there are times when out of the blue...issues can arise. Everyday day is a gift. Hugs to you and your hubby. Blessings always, xoxo, Susie

That is the right kind of attitude to have, Diane! Thank goodness that your hubby is getting better and that you now know what caused his illness....AND that he is once again able to do some hiking! We never know what life will bring from day to day but it sure is good to have some answers. I received a package from someone a while back and it was packed in a box like that. Now I know the box was from Bath & Body Works....I just love the blue checks! Take good care and I wish you a blessed Easter weekend!♥

Linda @ A La Carte said...

So happy you are both back to feeling better. I don't take baths much any more, too hard to get up and down. Sending hugs!

I'm glad your husband is doing better. I've never heard of PMR but I'm glad they found out and are treating it.

Tom said...

...staying healthy is the plan...be thankful for each day you are given.

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

It's been a long time since I've taken a luxurious bath - I can imagine that I would like the soothing scents that include lavender. I'm glad to hear that you and your husband are feeling better. I agree that it's more difficult to feel happy when you're not feeling well. I suspect that if I had a chronic illness that I would not be one of those inspiring people who face difficulty well...

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Wonderful to hear! A good soak always lifts the spirits! Hugs xo Karen

Mildred said...

Hi Diane, So very thankful you both are feeling better. We continue to remember you in our prayers. I love the B&BW's lemon dishwashing liquid but have not tried these. They sound delightful. God bless your Easter weekend.

Hello, so glad you're both feeling better! Well, you are so right about Happiness is fragile, we had a little sign that said Life is Fragile handle with Prayer!
I do enjoy a nice scented body wash and when I do soak it's in Epsom salts... Medicinal LOL
Hubby always says our health is our wealth!
Have a wonderful Easter Season!
Always, Roxy xo

Inger said...

I was just thinking of your husband today. After I read a few of your recent posts, I thought he must be feeling better. I'm so glad he is.

Gina said...

Diane, I don't think I've ever bought anything there before but those soaps look tempting! Do you think you can use them as a shower body wash? xo

PS So glad your husband is feeling better!

eileeninmd said...

Hello, Diane! So true. I am glad you are both feeling better now! That is a relief! I like the lavender vanilla scent. Take care and enjoy your walks. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

Happy Easter to you and your hubby!

Great to hear that your husband is feeling better now.
Not a bath person myself, prefer showers.

Lorrie said...

Yes, life can change so quickly. I'm glad a diagnosis was found for your husband and that you are able to enjoy life in the way you used to. I rarely take baths, but I love using L'Occitane peony scented lotion after my shower.

Michelle said...

I LOVE Lavender! I would have stocked up too! Thanks for linking up today and have a great weekend!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I also love lavender! I grow a lot of it in my garden as the deer don't eat it and I love its scent. Happy Easter, Diane (( hugs)))

Rose said...

I did not get to visit yesterday, but as I was praying for you last night I wondered if your husband was still feeling better. It is hard to deal with things when you feel bad.

Cherie K said...

I love the scent of roses. A bath filled with rose scented bubbles is my idea of heaven.

Cherdecor said...

I am so thankful also that you are both getting stronger as each day goes by. There may be bumps in the road, but better days are ahead.
Happy Easter to you and your family.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I'm glad you two were able to "send back' those unhappy days and that you're experiencing joy again. It would be lovely if life could imitate BB&B and guarantee happiness.... but it's good to have it almost every day! Happy Easter!

Cloudia said...

You write a good post!

Jenn Jilks said...

Glad to hear you are out and about. I love lavender!

It's nice to treat ourselves once in awhile, and your bubble baths sound delightful. I'm so glad to hear your husband is feeling better, Diane. God is good. : )
