Good Morning, Happy!

Good morning, Happy!

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!  😉

    I bet you have a lot of joy in your kitchen (and house), Janie!

  3. So true. I’m enjoying my morning by watching our kitten attack the computer screen while I type this. So funny! Her momma did the same thing when she was a kitten. Now it’s time to move the mouse (ha – mouse, kitten, get it?) around so she can chase the cursor. It truly is the little things.
