I'm Happy Today

It's amazing how much the sunshine affects me.  We haven't seen the sunshine very much this past month but I didn't even really notice until now when I looked outside and realized it.  I was so busy over the holidays that I didn't even notice the sun was gone.

Today, I'm happy....

Over the past couple of months I've dodge both bullets when my family became sick and I didn't.  I'm soooooo going to regret even typing that cuz Karma is going to rear its ugly head and horn me in the butt.  When I get stressed, I tend to take a lot of deep breaths.  So many deep breaths that my stomach will start to hurt and my chest will feel like a golf ball is stuck inside.  I've had that feeling for weeks and I was so certain that I was going to be sick over the holidays.  Today, I realized that stuck-ball-in-my-chest feeling is gone.  I have no idea when it stopped...

Stress = SICK 
Lack of sleep = SICK

I didn't set my alarm for two weeks when the kids were out of school.  I slept in as long as the kids and the dog allowed me to. I snuck in my daily devotions whenever I could and I believe those were the two keys of not getting sick.  Oh, and the fact that I don't have time to be sick.  For a few days now I've set my alarm early and got my devotions in before someone woke up.  I forgot how nice the house is when I'm the only one awake.


I'm happy today because my girls are getting along.  They haven't fought, they've kept to themselves and my best friend came over to visit.  I was able to catch up with her with minimal distractions because her kids and my kids were getting along.

Today, I'm happy.

I was on the phone with the Apple store today for an hour and learned how I can copy music cd's to our Apple products.  I don't have to pay for music through iTunes because I can copy my own CD's.  I learned how to use iTunes and I saved money today.

The sun is still shining... I'm happy today.  

I pray some of my happiness rubs off on me and through this post to you as you read it.  Smile for no reason and think of at least one good thing that's happened today.... and keep going from there.
