I’ve felt a little sad of late with several contributing factors adding to my melancholy mood. This morning, I stumbled to the kitchen at 5:40 a.m., defiantly not getting up at 5:30. (I’ll show that mean ol’ alarm clock…)
Horrors! To my dismay, the timer on the coffee pot had not been turned on the night before! I grumbled my way into the shower. Feeling slightly less miffed after a hot shower, I walked back to the kitchen, smelling the fresh brew the whole way. I filled my ‘Life Is Good’ coffee mug and as I passed through the family room, I noticed the beautiful, morning sky. I grabbed the camera and stepped outside and said, “Good morning, Happy!” to our donkey.
I smiled as I thought, Now, how many people get to walk outside and greet Happy each day? Even if I’m not feelin’ it … it’s hard to be grouchy when you are saying, Hi Happy! I am blessed to have my little 5 acres.
Think about what you surround yourself with. Even subconsciously, those items may be affecting you; hopefully, in a positive way. It reminds me why I use Joy dishwashing detergent. I figure I need all the help I can get with having joy while washing the dishes! 😉
