Five Pieces of Happy

 

... Here we are, third day in a row for blogging. Yippie! I've decided to combine my needing to spill my thoughts here on the blog with my art. Up until now it's just been art mostly. I just feel the need to write. So here we go.

   I'm thinking, after a lot of the comments I have gotten on my last few posts , that a lot of you are in the same place as me lately. A bit of needing to just find a little happy in your day. It's there. I know it is. You just have to know where to look for it and how to find it. So, as you go through your day there will be obvious signs of Happy and those will bring a smile to your face immediately.... others you might just overlook as just a normal happy and still others you may overlook all together and later in the day, those thoughts come back as amazing happy things❤️

   So here I go. I may not always share but today, I will. It was a bummer of a day but at the end... I had some happy things come into my mind. 

1. The amazing deep blue sky and huge white puffy clouds in the sky
2. Chocolate milkshakes and cheetos
3. My new fabric lines were launched today at the St Louis Quilt Market. 6 sunshine girls styles!!!
4. I get five days in a row off starting now!
5. Doing art as therapy❤️
    ... like below. Art heals - Jenny Doh says that. And I believe in art more than anything else! So 

 So... this is what I propose. That you find five things that made you happy in a day. Or five thoughts that make you happy. Write them down. Take photos of them. Draw them. Or just jot them in a piece of paper. Soon you'll have ten happys in a day and then soon... your day will be filled with happy.

Sound good? Ok, who's with me?

today my happies are...it's not supposed to snow, which means my electricity should be fine, which means the pump for my well will run, which means we have water for flushing toilets.
