Things to be Happy About

A million years ago I was a high school teacher. I thought I would be the coolest teacher in the world- which did not happen- and best decorator in the school- again, not me- and have the most fun in the classroom- possibly- but not the students...

I had a weekly list of “5 Things to be Happy About” on the chalkboard created each Monday morning with the help of 14,000 Things to be Happy About, a book by Barbara Ann Kipfer.

I tell you all of this to lead into the following list, possibly a new weekly item for the Paper Girl:

Ten Things to be Happy About:
1. Hula-hoops
2. sunglasses
3. drawstring pants
4. cut flowers
5. secondhand books
6. plastic colored Easter eggs
7. seedlings
8. organizing your goals
9. cake stands
10. cakes baked in animal shapes

I am certain you have your own things to be happy about this week, please do share…

I am thankful for our children's bedtime -- especially the part when they fall asleep.
