Happiness is.....

Lots of little things! Don’t you agree?

An amazing photo that my hubby took (not edited in any way)!


Dandelion Wishes even encourages you to make a “Happy List”! Doesn’t that sound like fun?

I saw it on Ricki’s blog Art @ Home first!

She has a wonderful blog! Be sure and visit her!

Some of the little things making me very happy today.....


Getting a photo of my son, Douglas in the mail today!

Taking the little doll I bought at the Festival this weekend....

I just love the rose photo, I never edit my photos that I publish anywhere online, making collages doesn't count does it. Also how lovely to have a current photo of your son, I miss my girls. :(

Hi Diane! Your happy list is wonderful. What a handsome son you have! I think the happy list is a great idea. Have a wonderful day! Twyla

Ricki Treleaven said...

Your Happy List rocks! Thanks so much for mentioning my blog, Art@Home. The little dolls are having a party on your lanai. You'd better keep a close watch on them!

Have a Happy Week!

Hi Diane,
Your son looks a lot like you!How fun to have had boys to raise. I had two girls and had to wait for our first grandson...he is so sweet and such a joy to us (boys are so different from raising girls) LOL
I am thankful to be thankful for all Gods blessings...
Have a sweet day and big hugs, Elizabeth

Vee said...

March must be making us all a bit more cheerful. Your son looks so much like you! A very handsome fellow he is.

Hi! Seeing the refreshing pictures in your blog is one reason to make me happy. But above anything, being with my family, given the ability to write and blog are more than enough reasons for me to be happy. Thank you for the comment you left in blog too. Thank you for uttering a prayer for me and until now I am still praying for my silent wish ;-)

Thanks for the inspiring posts. Continue to make us happy always :-)!

A happy list, what a great idea. I have so many things in my life that makes me happy - my Honey will be home any minute for one!
I enjoyed your happy list!

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

The dolls are so sweet...you're very talented!!!

Tammy@Beatrice Banks said...

Love your list of happy things! It's great to read of your positive attitude and outlook on life. Today I am happy b/c my college aged daughter called me first. I also had a happy moment when I walked into the living room and saw a line of little army men on my coffee table left by my 5 year old. And I was happy last night to fall asleep to the sound of rain hitting my window.

Donna said...

Love you photos
