It is Friday and as part of Jamie Ridler's Happy Book Mail Around time to reflect on the happy moments I experienced this week. I did take my sparkly butterfly to walk beside the river with me and that was fun. But I don't want to totally give up using this time to reflect on the past week. It has been such a special thing for me to do each week and has really helped me to see and be grateful for all of the people I love and the things I have been able to do and experience. This week when I was thinking of what made me happy I realized I was happy just because... I am happy just because I volunteered to work with a group that is developing a cultural arts center in our town. I am happy because it is fall and fall is my favorite season. I am happy because my four year old grandson is going to play soccer again and his first game is tomorrow. I am happy because I am going to visit my sister soon and we will have so much fun together. I am happy because my husband sold his first bracelet in the art gallery and although I always knew they would sell the first one is special. I am happy just because I choose to be happy. I think that last one is the most important. We all have choices to make each day and it is important to choose the things to do and the people to be with that make us happy. Have a wonderful week filled with happy moments.
