Giving Happiness Contest

Sitting on my front steps, listening to the gentle breeze,the sounds of a woodpecker and a chipmunk playing in the woods. With all this beauty and peacefulness around me,I ponder my purpose for this day.Asking myself why its so hard to be at home with myself as naturally as nature is..Listening to the woodpecker it reminds me of most of our days, pecking away at life..trying to crave out a space for ourselves in this hectic busy world. Really don't know much about woodpeckers , but do know that they have a purpose to their pecking away...the big question is .."What is my purpose for pecking away?" Hmmmmmmmmmm?
That is a Big question , one that will take some soul seaching and more time to spend on then the morning allows. so for the moment I am going to give my worries to the gentle breeze and pretend I'm like the little Chipmunk and scurry on in to get ready for a Wonderful Day ..and gather up all the Happiness there is out there waiting for me....!! Wishing you all a wonderful day !!

Good Morning, wonderful post. I too am sitting outside with a cup of coffee, watching the wonders of nature and the chickens peck the ground. Not sure why, my post from last nite is not there. Will be back to repost. Have a wonderful day!

I really dislike doing taxes, gathering the information and the whole routine. I know that my husband does not like the task either. We have put them off and put them off.
Today, I decided to pull everything together. Do all the necessary calculations and dropped it off at the accountants. It felt good knowing how happy Norm would be when he learns he will not have to handle that task this year.

On a typical day, I spend most of my day doing about a million different things all at once. I go through the motions of day to day life not taking time to "stop and smell the roses." Today, my goal was to take time to breath during the course of my day and slow down...mainly for me but also for my husband who always says I never have time for him! Tonight I came home and gave him a hug while he was working in the garage, grease or not...it will come out of my work clothes! And if not, I'm about due for some shopping! Walking around the "big loop" because he wants to and because it will make me feel much better! Feels good to make hubby happy!

Reading all the wonderful things that everyone is doing, I thought I would share my "happiness" adventure. I came home from work thinking I really needed to go shopping to buy myself something... You know, to just feel better. As I sat in my living room trying to figure out what I needed or wanted, I had an idea: so, I called my mom and asked her what she was doing. She responded nothing getting the tax stuff together and getting really frustrated. I replied, get yourself cleaned up I am going to take you shopping and buy you a new outfit. She started crying and said why... I stated because I love you and because I want to.... It felt good to brighten up someone else's day. I really didn't need anything new and I knew she needed a little pick me up.

i failed to post my comment last night, because yesterday evening gary and i were getting stressed over stupid details for the wedding, and we were both over tired from a long day and ready to start throwing punches, so instead of spending lots of time on the computer last night (which he hates and could have easily started an argument), i spent it with him starting our wheatgrass, watching a movie that he wanted to watch, and helping him around the house with things he wanted to get done.
