I know I don't.
Instead, let's talk about positive awesomeness. I'm going to write about what is making me gloriously happy in this moment. Because I am. Gloriously happy. In this moment. I truly believe, as I have learned many times, that happiness is not found in a constant state of being --happiness is found in the fleeting moments. Indeed, that is where joy is found. Peace can be found constantly, but joy? It jumps and skips. But hey, at least it's around, eh?
I am gloriously happy in this moment because:
*The baby is starting to smile! Is there anything more joyful than an infant smiling?
*The sun is shining and I can see the green grass pushing out the yellow.
*General Conference is in two days! I <3 General Conference. To listen to living, breathing, authority-given Prophets and Apostles?? Yes, please!
*My body is pretty much completely recovered from childbirth.
*My walls are full of photos of my beautiful family; my husband, my kids, my nieces, nephews, brothers, sisters, parents. And nearby are paintings of Jesus Christ, the Temple, my children praying, a beautiful cottage in a lavender field...
*The memory of last night at #2's soccer game, talking with a friend I haven't seen for a while, and hearing her thank me, very emotionally, for writing what I do on this blog about Depression. Not because she has suffered from it (still does, like me), but because I felt honored and humbled to have helped her.
*My two year old laughing and laughing and laughing...
*Looking at these photos.
*I actually finished writing thank you cards for everyone who helped me this month with the new baby and my kids --only two left to deliver!
*The scent of lavender, lemon, peppermint, and eucalyptus is in the air...
What is making you gloriously happy in this moment? Think of at least one thing and share...
