When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us. Helen Keller






Things to be happy about:

Egg and cheese sandwiches
Much needed rain
Finding out my insurance covered my contacts. :)
My daughter getting a well deserved promotion at work
Spiral staircases
Rocktoberfest
Dryer sheets and freshly cleaned laundry
Funny road signs
Turtles on a log in the creek
The way my favorite 3 year old is amazed by shadows

Someday I'will wish upon a star and wake up where the clouds are far behind me. Where laughter falls like lemon drops, Away above the chimney tops. That's where you'll find me. Somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.~Unknown


Things to be happy/grateful for:

That my Sister and her family got to come home from across the country for a visit.
Family picnics.
Homemade flour tortillas. (found a quick and easy recipe on Cooks.com)
Sweet orange peppers.
A few eBay sales.
Antibiotics.
Warm, but slightly windy days.
The sound of falling chestnuts.
Getting three outfits for work for under $20.00 at the thrift stores.
People who tell funny stories.
