When I was a little kid my brother and I had Charlie Brown bed sheets that had pictures of Peanuts characters all over them with "Happiness Is..." phrases with each picture. One was "Happiness is waking up to find you have another hour to sleep." I loved those sheets.
Today.... Happiness Is...
Happiness is... a pretty girl wearing a red scarf.
Happiness is... a sweet baby wearing an adorable hat.
Happiness is... the view of a beautiful winter day from my kitchen window.
Happiness is... pink?
Pink fingernails on a little girl.
Cupcakes with pink frosting. And sprinkles.
At the grocery store... (or, "A lesson in why small children should ride in the grocery cart")
Emeline: (holding up box of cake mix) Mommy, need this.
Mommy: We do?
Emeline: Yes, need this.
Mommy: What is it, Emeline?
Emeline: (looks at box) Honey Cakes!
Who could resist that?
There are several projects I "should" be working on but at the moment the mindless work of unraveling a cashmere sweater is the best I can muster. It's a good time to ponder and prioritize future projects. :)
