It's about love, it's about compassion, it's about kindness, and faith. It has nothing to do with luck. You get what you give…

So give good.

Friend Makin' Monday: What Makes You Happy?


This weeks theme at Friend Makin' Monday is "What Makes You Happy?"

First and foremost, this guy makes me happy:

It makes me happy when his gives me kisses before leaving for PT in the morning and how I can smell his shaving cream (it smells SO good!), when he tells me that I look pretty, making him laugh and when he makes me laugh (he's one funny guy), hearing him say "good dinner, baby" after a meal, when he surprises me with chocolate from the PX (he knows the way to my heart haha), and seeing him in uniform, especially those dress blues.

He makes me happy, too:

I know I'm extremely biased, but I think Buddy's so stinkin' cute that I could just eat him up with a spoon! It makes me happy that I make him happy-- he's such a mama's boy and is so happy to see me even if I've just been gone a few minutes. I just love seeing that tail wag....

What else....

♥ when I'm driving and a good song comes on the radio

♥ a wonderful new recipe

♥ reading magazines/ a genuinely good book

♥ a clean, well-decorated home

♥ getting things in the mail... except junk mail-- I hate that stuff

♥ fresh sheets that smell like fabric softener

♥ pretty things (I know this one is vague...)

♥ taking naps

* * * * *

E and I didn't do a thing all weekend-- that made me pretty happy too!
