haPpY saTuRdaY...

well soccer is over and i can now sit down and think. i decided {and i think i might even have it sunk in} that we make our own happiness. if we choose to get up and be grumpy or have a bad day we chose that. if we crawl out of bed and put a smile on our face and say... today is gonna be a good day, it WILL. so i guess i just need to keep reminding myself this. this is a hard one for me. another one that i have to remind myself on. for some it comes easy, for others... seeing my kids play today put a smile on my face. seeing my parents watch their grand kids, put a smile on my face. talking to friends...a SMILE!! see it's a choice. what did you choose? what WILL you choose? i am now on day 11 of my {21} day challenge. the group is on day 8. i did fall off the bandwagon a couple of days, but like i said earlier i am doing many. it's ok to fall, we just have to remember to pick ourselves up, dust off and try again. this quote was for day 7 on rhonna's blog. is this not so true? "change your thoughts & YOU change YOUR world". think about it for a minute. little ol' me could change mY world. anything is possible, if we try. continue to try this weekend. i know i will. have a wonderful saturday!! {think of me as i finish laying my daughters flooring.} *hugs* connie


ps.. today is tracy's birthday. the one we are doing the fundraiser for. please take a couple of minutes and wish him a wonderful one. i know it will truly lift his spirits.

I am so proud of you Connie as I see you growing right before my eyes in your blog. I think again of one of my favorites and it is so fitting of you: "Be the change you wish to see in the world." Ghandi & MOM. True Happiness could be described as follows: "Seeing my child, watch her children play soccer as she rushes each child from one game to another on a windy, fall Saturday with a smile on her face and encouragement in her voice." You, Connie were happy to see your parents watch your children play and I, as a parent was happy to watch you. Happiness IS a choice and thank you for sharing it with us today. ReMemEmbeR... "THE SECRET" I love you, baby!

I know that I forget, on many occasions, that I am in control of my mood. Thank you for the amazing reminder! It's great how kids and friends can give you a perma-grin. Let it happen, I say.
