So here goes – thanks to Wendy Brilliance Within for nominating me to complete this ‘happiness tag’ the rules are easy. Write about 5 things that make me happy, 5 songs that make me happy and nominate 5 ‘happy’ bloggers to complete the tag too if they are willing to share a bit of happiness..
5 Things that make me happy:
No1: Is my husband. We have been together for 30 years. All those years ago he ask me to, “come grow old with me as the best is yet to be.” I accepted and he was right. The amazing journey of our life continued to get better and better with each passing year. My kids have 4 legs and are fur babies. They give unconditional love. They never ask for money or wreck the car. They are not the best at picking up their toys but they will we are working on that.
No2: My family. I am blessed to have amazing parents who instilled into my siblings and me that we could do anything we wanted to do. Plus they supported each and every one of our endeavors. They are supporting my niece right now by traveling over 2 states to cheer her on as she competes in gymnastics. We all support each other and when we do get together it is a grand time. We have made the most of every bit of time we are together. We camped for over 50 years with extended family and those memories are things we still talk about to this day. Sandra, I’m sorry about the strawberry Sunday. How was I to know it would fly back in and go all over you.
No3: Great friends. In 2010 we moved half way across the US to Arizona. We knew no one here. That soon changed and we have made great friends from all over. Plus we retain our friends from Oklahoma. Anytime we are together is a grand time with lots of laughter and food. (Eating makes me happy too.)
No4: Nature – We live in an amazing state that is incredibly diverse. I can be in the mountains in 2 hours or at the sea in 5. We can play golf almost every day. Many think the desert is empty but they would be wrong. Birds winter here. Year round we have hummingbirds, doves, quail, roadrunners the list goes on and on. I enjoy seeing mountains from my back yard and watching the birds. Plus our sunsets are fabulous. Then our night sky, oh my don’t get me started. But until you have watched meteor dart across the crystal clear night from your back yard in December in your PJ’s you haven’t lived.
No5: Reading – I believe if you can read you can go anywhere. I read all the time.
5 songs that make me happy right now:
No1: Pharrell Williams “Happy”
No2: Bobby McFerrin’s “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”
No3: DNCE Cake by the Ocean – If you have not seen the Kai sing this on Ellen you should look it up.- Adorable now every time I hear this song I see this adorable little boy and smile.
No4: Justin Timberlake “Can’t stop the feeling”
No5: Megan Trainor “All about that Bass
I nominate the following because they make me happy. – I hope you don’t mind but I’d love to read your Happiness Tag’s..
P.S. Meeting new friends by reading your blogs is another thing that makes me happy.
