This question was posed to me not too long ago.
It was asked in a moment of ugliness… my own ugliness.
I think it was asked in a sincere way.
And I’ve been trying to answer it ever since.
In the moment, all I could answer was “a clean sink.”
But after further reflection, I think there are many things that make me happy.
Time spent with my family when there is nothing to “do” or “get done” and everyone is being nice.
Reading a good book.
Hugs from my husband. Seriously. The best.
Writing brings me joy. I picked up a new journal the other day to document some things going on in my life and spent some time writing in there. When I was done, I felt really good!
Laughing with my kids.
Lunch with a good friend.
We are almost to November, the month of giving thanks… which seems like a good time to count my blessings and see how many other things there are to be thankful for… which are usually the things that make me happy!
