Happiness Is... (Part 2)

Happiness is...

...brand new Easter dresses.

...Daddy's girls.

...hugs and kisses.

...little kids coloring.

...not-so-little kids coloring.

(You should've seen the look on mom's face when she asked me to make an example on Saturday night and I handed that back to her five minutes later.)

Happiness is...

...a room full of children who can tell you all about how "sometimes we do bad things and it's called sin, but Jesus was perfect and never sinned and God sent Him to earth and He died on the cross and rose again so we could live with Him in Heaven one day."

...a little girl who never fails to color a picture for you every week & then gets so excited when you're home from college and she can actually give them to you.

...two girls who crawled around in the church nursery together nearly 21 years ago.

Happiness is...

...more birthday wishes and celebrations.

...didicars and hardwood floors.

...finding money in an Easter card from Grandma & Grandpa.

(Please check out that progression. Boy was thrilled.)

Happiness is...

discovering that I spent a portion of my Easter weekend the same way Kelle Hampton did.

(if you want a good laugh, read Kelle's Easter post.)

(I promise Sophia is crawling out of the giant inflatable hamster ball, not falling...)

...love that only gets stronger with time.

(my grandparents, who have been married for almost 47 years)

Happiness is...

...sugar and spice and everything nice...

...and snips and snails and puppy dog tails.

...once again, the feeling that comes along with taking a really darn good picture.

Happiness is also opening my mailbox to see a graduation announcement from Hannah Guisewite, with a super sweet note enclosed! Congratulations, precious girl! I'm so proud of you :)

Once again, what are some of YOUR current happinesses?
