Happiness Journal

The skies opened up this week and it rained. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen rain so puddle jumping was in order.

This girl and her smiles make my heart happy!!!

I have been very inconsistent with writing in this space lately. I’m working out a plan (plans always are subject to change though) where I will write at least a couple times a month. Writing has fed my soul for just under 5 years and I need to find my way back.

Until then, enjoy what makes my heart happy!!!

This morning I asked Alice if she wanted to go on an adventure and she promptly responded, “go see mice!”

This morning we stood for a long time and watched as the mice went round and round, cuddled with their friends and tried to break out of their cage. It was a grand adventure and made Alice’s and my heart very happy.

Last night I woke up and couldn’t get back to sleep. I miss my girls.

I decided, after an hour of prayer, what I needed was something to hold on to. I reached under my pillow and pulled out Honey, Anna’s favorite blanket. I wrapped my arms around it tightly and held it to my face.

I fell back to sleep.

This morning Alice was playing as I was getting ready for our day. I could hear her talking with her sister’s babies. She is such a good little Aunt. I walked quietly into her room not to disturb her world and found her wrapping Baby Mary in Honey, just like Anna used to do.

She looked up and smiled.

“Say Cheese!”

That is what I said right before I took this photo.

Their relationship makes me happy today.

Life has been extremely busy for our family the past few months. Starting next week everything slows down and I am taking a break and regrouping for the rest of the summer (more on that in a later post).

Until then, we are making the final preparation for the Love Rocks Run, which is happening this Saturday, and making sure these two are loved and cared for.
