Happiness is…

Happiness Is...

  Happiness is…

  I’ve played along with this only once before {you can find it here}and I really enjoyed it. I think we sometimes get to wallowed down in the day to day things that can make us utterly miserable and cranky. We forget the small things…the good things…and thrive on the bad. I’m guilty of it. I’ve been especially guilty of it in these past 6 months or so with my husband gone.

  But today I’m going to embrace the happy.

We are getting closer and closer and closer to the day. You know. The one that I’ve been anticipating for the past 6 months. Graduation. The end of A-School. The return of some sort of normalcy. Hubby will be coming home. Happiness is watching the little countdown ticker I’ve got set up on my phone [yeah, I’m a nerd like that] tick down day after day after day. Today, we are at 63 days until I see him again [a few more till graduation-but I’m more eager for the other]. I was somewhat bummed a few weeks ago when we found out that Little Man and I weren’t going to be able to fly out there to visit him at the end of this month like we had planned. But, now I’m over it. Because I’m reminding myself of how much better it will be to see him and know that when we leave, he’ll be leaving with me. Coming home again to our family and that we’ll be getting ready to head to wherever we will be stationed and resume a relatively normal existence.

My little boy…my sweet, tiny, seems like he was born yesterday little boy will be turning TWO in exactly two weeks. Where on EARTH has the time gone?! Happiness is being able to share this birthday with our family, knowing that he probably won’t have many more with so many relatives around. Happiness is knowing that even though his daddy won’t be here in person to celebrate with us, that we are blessed enough to live in a tech savy world which will allow for a birthday party via Skype.

Happiness is seeing him grow and develop and knowing that I have a hand in that. That God blessed me with this beautiful little boy because he knew that I was going to be the best mother for him. Happiness is knowing that God also put a wonderful man in my sons life-a man that he will be lucky to call “daddy” and a man that I am beyond blessed to have as my best friend, partner and husband.

Happiness is what I find behind my lens and behind this computer. The joy I find in turning something like this:

Day24-28 114 
Into this:

Day28 
is vast and completely unexplainable to someone who just doesn’t get it. Some people can’t comprehend the feeling and the surge of emotion that comes into play when you turn something dull and ordinary into something exquisite and beautiful. And that’s ok. It’s not there for everyone to understand. And to some, what I consider beauty, may not be anything close to beauty in their eyes. But in mine…the detail, the simplicity, the ordinary turned extraordinary is part of my happiness.

Reading your comments and resonating with so many of you in different areas and aspects of life, is what happiness is about. I’ve found a voice through blogging, like so many of you out there have. And by finding my voice, I have learned more and more about who I was and opened myself up to an abundance of friendships and relationships that wouldn’t have been possible otherwise.

Happiness is…

Choosing your life. Letting God guide you into your destiny…and sharing the journey with people who matter most.

Happiness is choosing to see life in whatever light you wish-
