Today’s little happies

Things making me  happy today

1. a chubby, dimple-grinned angel throwing Goldfish crackers across the kitchen as soon as I look away

2. slightly warmer temperatures

3. early morning chat with an old, dearly missed friend

4. helping someone with their resume as they dare to dream of a different life

5. last night’s unexpected visit with someone whose friendship I cherish more than she knows

6. knowing that I have resuscitated my blog – finally!

7. thinking about getting started on my cookbook

8. answering to the name “Mama”

9. having a husband with a love-filled heart

10. being offered a pacifier from the aforementioned angel as if it’s my turn to take a hit

11. thinking about being only two days from seeing my long-lost friend who is coming for a visit – and I get to keep her and her beautiful daughter all weekend!


About Rebecca Mixon

If you attend my funeral, please wear red. Make sure my loved ones do not bury me in shoes, and make sure they don't let the undertaker make me look ridiculous. I want beautiful music and lots of storytelling. All that will be great once I'm gone from this Earth. But, while I'm here, give me my flowers while I live. It has come to my attention lately that we don't "give people their flowers" until it's too late for them to enjoy the beauty, the colors, the sentiment. I'm changing that. The people in my life will know how they are appreciated and loved, and they will smell the aroma of their flowers as often as I get the chance to tell them. This blog is about the blessings in my life. Mainly, it's about the people who keep my world spinning on a good axis and help me realize that work, bills and stress mean nothing. Family counts. The rest is just gravy.
