I also ahve to say spending time with my daughter makes me truly happy. Sitting in my favorite Lazy boy rocker with my cat and dog cuddling me covered with my favorite blanket is sheer heaven.

I also notice these happy moments that make my moods pure bliss turn my mind away from food and binging and all else in the world including stress.

1) Family gatherings

2) Listening to the kids in the neighborhood express themselves. Especially the ones under five. They have so much to say and much discovering to do. I can't wait to have grandkids!

3) Listening to Brad Paisley or Michael Buble

I love your quotes. My dogs always made me smile from deep down. Walking in the parks with them singing to them and myself and drinking in the sky, the trees and the varied birds I felt happy. Music still makes me feel joyful.

What really makes me happy is spending time with my husband and daughter and doing a fun family activity were no one gets mad.


Oh one more thing makes me happy, washing my cats. I love that they look like drown rats when they are all wet. I am so mean. LOL! THey hate it when I wash them, but they are so soft and pretty when they are dry.

Just one? Oh, too hard to limit to just one! I could easily list hundreds of things that bring me pure happiness; however I will list only three:

1) The sure knowledge that there is a sovereign Creator God & that I am one of His own!

2) The honor & joy of sharing my life with my much treasured husband – I call him “My MrV”!

3) Answering the telephone & hearing the voice of one of our cherished offspring or the sweet young voice of any one of our five Grandchildren!

I could go on & on & still have a lot more priceless gifts from God that give me unadulterated happiness.

Be blessed!

There are four things I can think of right now that make me happy:
1.)God
2.)Spending time with my son and my fiancee
3.)Spending time with my family
4.)Spending time with our two cats

I am SO glad someone posted this--because too often we do focus on all the negatives, one of those being this "obsession" with food and losing weight. Anyway, I was very excited to realize I have so much more than just ONE thing! YAY! Most of the time I just agonize over the food I eat and dread being in my home because I'm afraid I'll keep eating.

But for right now I'm going to concentrate on what makes me happy that ISN'T chocolate or loaded with sugar:
snuggling with my cats, seeing my daugther laugh or smile (which is very rare, and that much more treasured), being able to do a vigorous workout and not collapse afterward (due to CFIDS), watching the birds at my bird feeders, visiting my aunt on my grampa's old farm, Law and Order marathons on TNT!!!, finding a great non-fiction book to read so I feel like I'm enriching my mind, a rainy day so I don't feel guilty sitting around doing nothing, listening to my iPod "mellow music" playlist, seeing all the tomatoes growing on my little plant, watching the neighborhood kids play in our sprinkler.

I could go on, but I feel better already, and don't want to chow down on another donut. Wish I could wrap this up and keep it with me, open it whenever I need to....

Right now I live for my kids, but believe me they don't always make me happy. There is a lot of stress. But I do have great joy in are love.

But other than that its a good cup a coffee and getting out for a nice ten mile hike into the environment or camping. There are days when I feel I want to walk forever into the mountains, because not only is it beautiful peaceful it is also very relaxing even though it can be a strenuous hike straight up mountain. To bad right now my toe is broken. Also my dogs constant nudging of my arm upward to pet them or hug them. They love me and its unconditional all the way.

Sorry I keep adding. Heres another one. Shopping at thrift stores like American Way and Good will. I always find fun things.

To have one day of peace would make me happy, but for now, a song and a walk in God's beautiful world will do the trick!

"We will be known forever by the tracks we leave."

"When you were born you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice."

"Wolves, like the Indian, choose their mates wisely and do not part till death--making the two spiritually entwined."

+With me... no matter the weather... I have a favorite place to go here in Oregon. It's the partk at the River. Clackamas River where it meets the Willamette river. I can sit there and watch the sea Lions Bark and mate and play and swim and anger the fishermen in boats. I watch the ducks and the geese, eagles soaring and taking food to their babies in the nests, the pidgeons beg for food, squirrels stare me down at a close range. they have life so easy. At this spot that is MY spot there is nos tress no moods no hurt or tension. I'm happy and relaxed.

Have you noticed that when you’re feeling down, little annoyances of life that you would otherwise brush off easily, make you angrier, unhappier and much more frustrated? And vice versa – when you are in a good mood, tiny stuff like a cup of freshly brewed coffee, a fun song on the radio or a free parking spot right by the entrance is enough to make you burst with joy and happiness.
Obviously, our mood is related to our general perception of happiness. However, there are some things that always make us happy despite any mood, weather or work stress, be it seeing a toddler smile at us, drinking a cup of delicious hot chocolate or petting a pet we love so much.
