As I studied the calendar for March I learned that Sunday, March 3 is, “I Want You To Be Happy Day”. Isn’t that everyday? Smiles always beat frowns. Tears from laughter are better than tears of sadness. So what is it that makes us happy? What is it that we can do today that will not only make those around us happy, but also ourselves? It’s a good thing that money doesn’t buy happiness, because I don’t have much of that.
Anyway, I’ve been thinking about what 1 thing I can to do to make each family member happy, and so far everything I’ve come up with is pretty simple. I have decided that I will take the dish turn for B14, not ask A21 to take out the trash, or E17 to babysit. I will play a game of chess, cards, or whatever Z7 wants to play immediately upon his request. I’m not sure yet what I’ll be doing to add a little happiness to A22’s day, but I know it will involve cheese and pineapple (homemade pizza?). J9 is easy, extended laptop and tv turns for him. My husband will be happy if I can keep from sending him on some errand and just let him have a day to stay home.
We all know that saying, “Nobody’s happy unless Momma’s happy”, perhaps a Sunday afternoon NAP will take care of that. Wishing you happiness , betty jo (ps: lots of views and comments on the blog would make me very happy, too)
