It’s a common phrase isn’t it?…
Bad things come in 3’s
or words similar to that!
So, let’s flip it (you know how I love to turn a negative into a positive!)
Let’s find 3 things to be happy and grateful for!
(or even more… I mean, why not?!)
In my new weekly feature, I will look back over my gratitude journal and bring to you my #HighlightsofHappy , which is great because it gives me the opportunity to look back and be grateful all over again 🙂
I will then round it off with one word that sums up my happy.
So, what am I happy and grateful for this week? I seem to have a bumper selection for you this week! There’s been plenty of happiness to go round 🙂
I am grateful that…
…that I found myself making jelly late one night because our daughter’s friend was coming the next day for a play after school. I had to leave the jelly to cool in the microwave overnight (away from the cats!) and I had to leave a note to remind myself to pop it in the fridge in the morning! It was very wibbly, wobbly like jelly should be, delicious and made our girl and her friend very happy.
…that we had an little adventure when we walked her friend home. She knew a short cut that we didn’t know about. It was a pretty little short cut and it was lovely to discover a little place, having moved house about a year ago!
…one night we had jacket potatoes for tea… melted butter and lovely, crispy skins. Mmmmm yes please!
…that I found our daughter’s Rapunzel doll. It was bedtime (of course!) and she decided it simply had to be found. So I declared that
we I would have one look and try again tomorrow. After the first rummage, the doll was found!
…a year after hubby had acute appendicitis, we’ve been reflecting on how it could have been so very different, the fact that it wasn’t and that we’re all here. Of course, we’ll be forever grateful for that!
…for the lovely rainbow picture on my instagram, as drawn by our daughter.
…and that she made rainbow cards for various people. So colourful and cheerful.
…for a daughter who tidied her bedroom without being asked to and with apparently no ulterior motive!
…that she is giving away her DVDs in her friends’ party bags. A kind gesture and great way to have a clear out!
…for laughing along while watching Tommy Cooper with hubby. “Just like that!’… and he wouldn’t have been able to laugh along a year ago due to his op!
So my happy word this week is ‘rainbows’ because they feature a lot this week and they describe my week so well on so many levels!
How about you? I’d love to hear about your ‘happy’ in the comments below or tweet me @AllSortsHere using #HighlightsofHappy
Go on, share your happy with me!
