I saw this on justrandi's blog some time ago and told her I was going to steal it. (I used Wordle.) These are the things that make me happy. I'm so grateful for all that I have in my life. Yes, there are challenges, but I choose to be happy in spite of them.

So, how about you--WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY???

Lots of things, that I often forget to think about! My kids of course, although they also frustrate me. My husband, friends, Christmas Music and much more.

What a great list. I think I need to look at what makes me happy more often. My husband, children, our families, music, friends, church, temple,...there are so many things that make me happy. It is easy sometimes to get overcome and forget about the little things that make us happy. Thank you for this post.

I LOVE it! You did a great job!

(and how did I not get The Biggest Loser on my list?)

That is quite the Wordle! I love it! Today, the thing that is making me happy is my super STEAL I got from Target! So excited to put it to use. I am going to post pictures... but I'm thinking about painting them first :)

Connie said...

That Wordle is cool! You have lots of good things to be thankful for. There are lots of things I'm thankful for too. I'd be here all night if I wrote them all down.
(aren't we supposed to be thankful for our trials too?)
Have a good day.

very fun word art...

I did a tiny bit of this on my own I couldn't get wordle to work... and frankly I didn't try that hard. Just created my own.

What makes me happy?
My hubby, kids, sisters, friends, grand-girls, loved ones in heaven looking out for me, chats on the phone, special moments, blogging, journaling, photography, singing, dancing, raindrops... that start a downpour, and I guess there are too many to list here. Being alive and having the experiences life offers... the best!

heffalump: It's great to think about the things that make us happy, eh? Yes, sometimes they can be frustrating too--like chocolate, I love it but it also frustrates me ; )

chantel: You're welcome. Yes it is easy to forget about the little things ; )

justrandi: Wasn't Biggest Loser incredible?

Thanks--I may use wordle again--it was fun.

melissa: Congrats on that steal--good job. Those kinds of things always make us happy, eh? Can't wait to see them.

connie: I don't always feel grateful for a trial until I'm through it ; )

sheila: Great list. Being alive--definitely great.

jess: Thanks, jess. Do it on your blog--I'd love to see your list.

tori: Can't wait to see what you post. Thanks.

Great friends and neighbors!

annie said...

A clean house. Good reports from the kids. Seeing Amanda since she is gone now most of the time.

Love your cute word thingie :)

Nancy Face said...

Many, many things make me happy...and the most important ones revolve around my family and the blessings of the gospel. :)

I love that I can look at your collection of happy words and know it's YOU by the names of your loved ones in the larger sizes! :)
