30 Days of Love - Day 27: Happiness

Day 27 is dedicated to happiness.

Finding happiness can be a challenge at time.  Each person has their own idea of happiness and therefore have different ways of finding happiness.  Some people say that happiness comes from within.  However, that happiness tends to get covered up by emotions and  thoughts.  We lose sight of happiness. 

Happiness can be found in every day life.  For me, coming home from work each day to my dog, Shelby...is happiness.  Shelby is always happy to see me and gives me kisses.  She brightens my day and makes me feel happy again.

I also find happiness in helping my husband.  He has some medical issues and recently had a below the knee leg amputation.  Supporting him, taking care of him and being by his side makes me happy.  Him being happy makes me happy.

I see happiness in my children, brother, my in-laws, nieces, nephews, family and friends...and that makes me happy.

Each day I find at least one positive thing that made me happy and I do my best to focus on that happiness.  It may be something as simple as a smile but sometimes that is all it takes.

What makes you happy?
