my friday happy...

joey makes my day just about every day. he has such an awesome personality. he loves his toys and he loves to cuddle. and as I write this he apparently also has an affection for toilet paper. JOEEEEEEEYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!

my thursday happy...

I took a trip back to the past and made some paper. I used to love to make handmade paper and even sold it in stores and at craft sales. I forgot how relaxing it could be to dip the deckle in the water and feel the slurry between your hands. moments later you have a beautiful piece of handmade paper. fun!

my wednesday happy...

can I have two? first I braved the elements along with a couple of my crazy peeps and one beautiful dog. it truly was beautiful running in the cold. not the cold, but the company and the view. gotta love our river valley!
the other happy was our running group after christmas luncheon. this time we ended up at skinny legs and cowgirls. beautiful company and yummy eats! I love seeing us all together. we have been meeting every wednesday morning for years and their gift of friendship and support is such a treasure.

my tuesday happy...

a friend of mine who I hadn't talked to in quite a while called up asking if I wanted some broken marble to play around with. maybe make some magnificent art piece out of. and so began our chat and we both ended up in tears as she listened to me tell the story of my mom and her tell me that her mom had the same disorder. the calm that came over me after our conversation was unbelievable. I FINALLY had a real person who has lived through it to talk to about so many of my fears and ask questions to and get some real answers. what a blessing! I truly think that the marble bookend falling and breaking into pieces was no accident.

my monday happy...
dan had us over for supper. salmon steaks and rice pilaf with homemade beer. it was delicious! he has had some hurdles to jump lately, but he has done it with grace and maturity beyond his years and man can he cook! so proud of him.

and there ya have it. not just one moment of happy, but several this week. good week. very good week! so thankful for all the happy moments and the people who contributed to my happy.

wanna share your happy with us? head over to the happy book.

What a great bunch of stories for the week. Love the fact that you've gotten together with the same group of women for support and friendship for such a long time. What a terrific support that is! And the story about your friend who is able to share your situation in ways that others might not be able to. And your darling little dog. have a great week!

It sounds and looks like you had a wonderful week. You had so many different and great connections with people you care about and who care about you. Have a wonderful week filled with many more happy moments.

Yay, the happy book has arrived, and you definitely seem to be zoning in on happy moments in your life Nadia ~ good on you! And seeing as I'm the 23rd person in our Glee circle, I'm breathing a sigh of relief and excitement that our group journey to sharing our "happies" is beginning! Thx for posting...

Peace & Glee,
