If you are Happy and you know it!!!!

Postby TNK* » Wed Sep 10, 2014 3:53 pm

Come on folks, lets cheer this place up a little bit, I know we are all aching and knackered, but we are all still here, and there must be one thing you are happy for, it might be some flowers in the garden or something your kids have said that has made you laugh...

Ive got a few things today, but if you only have one or 2 just write them down, just makes a little welcome change from the usual "my feet are hurting" or "DWP are being idiots"

here goes

1... My daughter is happy today as her fiance is coming home from Afghanistan after completing his tour, so even though after this bit of R&R he will be back in Germany, at least he isnt over there anymore....if my daughter is happy then I am happy

2...Today would have been my dads birthday, he died just over 5 years ago, I am happy as me and hubby have been out for a little light lunch to mark the occasion, but also, i am slowly feeling like I am "getting over it" I miss him terribly and sob quite often, but this is the first year I havent bought him a birthday card, and i dont feel bad.

3...DD2 is settling into high school really well

4...been out for a bit of shopping with hubby, treated one of the dogs to a new collar, had a walk round and didnt feel like i needed to sit or take it easy....being nearly a month post op and feeling pretty good!

I haven't had to cook dinner tonight :-D While I was out being walked by the doglet, DS donned the frilly pinny of Domestic Goddessing and became Head Chef. Certainly made things taste even better with them being done by someone else B-)

I am a happy gal because........

I called my youngest granddaughter this morning, she turned 4. I sang happy birthday to her and she laughed. Little pudding gets on a school bus by herself for a 35 minute ride to school. Little legs on 3 yr old can hardly reach the steps.

My hubby calls me every day at 12:04. We chatt before he eats lunch.

I know my children and grandchildren are happy.

I am alive!!!! Even with this dreaded illness, I am alive. In the past 18 months I have lost 2 close friends to cancer. One right across the street and the other 4 doors down. I look out every day and see Eilene's beloved garden. Then every night hubby and I walk by Pams house and for a brief moment see her standing on her porch. They were both in their 50's. There have been 7 of us out of the 15 houses here that have developed a cancer within the last 4 years. 3 have lost. So far, I am a lucky one.

TNK great idea.
I am happy because my garden is coming on slowly and it will hopefully be easier to manage next year. :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:

Have almost arranged a cleaner for my elderly mum. :chicken-dance: :chicken-dance:

That despite being sore, tired, forgetful etc etc etc there are still a lot of things I can do. :facepalm: :facepalm:

Did a Skywire (zipwire) when on holiday at it was FAB. :f1-car: :f1-car: ( that's how fast I went) :teddy-bear:

The depression of the last week or so has lifted quite a lot and the blue skies and refreshing breeze has done wonders.

I have also crafted for the first time in a fortnight, :-P :-P I can judge my mental state from whether I want to be creative or not, so it's all good there.

LASTLY I have just been sent some videos of my dog swimming, horse riding and playing. As I can no longer take him out, this was a real tret as I love to watch him on the horse and playing with a Rottweiler puppy. :-D I'm not sure :-D who thinks they're a Rottweiler, my JR or the puppy itself.

This is such a good idea. Don't cringe but I used to write down 3 things I was grateful for every day. I got the idea from watching Oprah :oops: :oops: It's helped no end, I got bogged down and stopped. (Mind relentlessly cheerful people want to make me punch their lights out sometimes.) Positive thought is always a good way to go, so thanks.

Todays' crafty session, my friends' rescue cats. A bit rough and ready, but it really helps pass the time.

Tally...I know someone who writes a note, a small one, LOL, on her calendar every day. She has well over 50 years of calendars saved.

That's just so beautiful x We lost my father in law nearly a year ago to dementia and my dad has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. We have to be so thankful that although we have this condition, we can learn to live with it. They cant. Its so much more tougher. God bless everyone x
