Happiness Journal

Our mornings usually start right here. Her favorite rainbow blanket, a small bagel, and Linus waiting for the moment her guard is down so he can steal what he thinks is his breakfast.

These two make 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.

No words tonight just this photo of two best friends sharing a toy.*

*Actually, Alice was showing Linus her toy trying to get him to grab it so she could scream that he took her toy.

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.

Halloween 2017 ~ Somewhere Over the Rainbow ❤

Our little Dorothy, her rainbow shoes (she has ruby reds but refused to put them on), our not-so cowardly lion and, of course, the Tin Man make my heart incredibly happy.
