Happiness

20140404-213354.jpg

As we headed west towards the coast in the compact rental car my husband asked me, ” are you happy with your life?” and I said “yes, I love my life” and I asked him the same and he answered with an emphatic “YES!, how can I not be happy” as he took my hand and kissed the top of it.
I can truly say I have found the secret to true happiness. It took almost 50 yrs but it has arrived. Happiness can be so many things and for me it’s contentment. Now you may think contentment is lukewarm. But being content means no drama. It’s knowing you are right where you belong. It’s knowing that Gods plan and His timing may not be our plan or timing but it’s the best. Contentment is loving going home at the end of the day. It’s being silent and being ok with that. It’s making eye contact with your beautiful little boy with autism. It’s waking up and being strong and feeling healthy.
Now that my firstborn has become a mother, it’s that circle of life. That adds to my big box of decorations I hang on my happy tree.
We definitely create our own happiness by what and whom we surround ourselves with. My happy place isn’t perfect but it’s perfect for me.
I’m grateful that I am able to recognize that I am so blessed.
I’m nostalgic as I close out the first half of a century of my life. I’m also looking forward to the next 50 years.
