Truly Happy

I was thinking today, as I was running very mundane errands, and came to the conclusion I'm truly happy. It has been quite a while since I have felt this way. Things in my life haven't changed, my beasties are still goobery at times, money is still tight-as it probably always will be and I still need to loose the baby weight. But, life IS good. I know, you can laugh at my mushy-gushy mind wandering (Kit does, good thing I'm here to keep him entertained ;P ). You can blame it on my recent hair trim, maybe less weight to hold this air-head down, but I feel giggly and good. Even sunshiny. I have so many blessings withing my little sphere and they make me happy!

That's great that you are feeling happy. It is nice to finally get that feeling and be content with all the things life has handed you even though it isn't perfect.

I love days like that! I love moments like that-like when Lizzie will give me a super tight leg hug followed by lots of kisses. We need those days and moments to remind us what life is all about. In this case, it's good to be an "airhead".

I've felt happy for a long time, and I keep wondering, "What's the catch? When is something bad going to happen that's going to ruin all this?" For now, I'm enjoying the ride.

Good for you! So very few people are truly happy, always wanting more. Enjoy that feeling!

It makes me so happy that you are happy!!! You deserve it. You are a wonderful wife, mother, sister, daughter, sister-in-law....I could go on and on. It was great talking to you last night and I used your advise. Michael drank his milk from a sippy last night and this morning. He tries to use it like a bottle and he doesn't drink as much, but it is working and he will eventually figure it out. Thanks for being my sounding board!! Love ya!

Being happy truly makes everything else fall into place. Your all-around persective is better therefore, you are able to endure tantrums and messes with a smile (dare i say it) and perhaps alittle understanding??? yep. tis good to be happy.

ps okay maybe not a smile, more like clenched teeth, but the understanding part always helps me to bite my tongue. I am glad you are happy.

Oh sweet Liberty, how happy this blog makes me feel!! I know it's been a struggle but how blessed we all are (especially having you in our family) I've always been a "The sun will come out tomorrow" type of person and I'm so glad you feel that way to. As Jos would say I love you all the way to the moon and back!!

Thanks for posting this. It helps everyone remember that despite trials and things not being the way we want all the time, that we are really blessed in this life. I wish I had more of your attitude!

What a wonderful post! I am so happy that you are feeling good. It makes me happy that you are happy. :) Mmmm, I would love to hear about your trim, too... It's funny that you said that you are "sunshiny", cause the other day after I got off the phone w/ you I told Phillip that you were like sunshine. You truly are and you brighten up my life. I love you!

Andrea said...

Liberty, I agree with your sister Stephanie, you are like a burst of sunshine! It is always nice to have you around. I'm glad you feel about your life right now how we feel about you all the time! You are truly a blessing to our ward and I'm glad to know you!

Yay! for sunshiny days. I was having one of those days today too. It just makes everything seem better, doesn't it. I gotta agree w/Steph-life is just brighter after talking to you-even if we're both having bad days, it still lightens things to have someone to commiserate with.
