Today is National Happiness Happens Day! Ironically, lately I’ve been thinking about what makes me happy. We’ve been traveling a lot this summer, actually we travel a lot every summer. I am so fortunate to have a job that I can make my own hours and work remotely which allows me to travel as much or as little as I want.
Right now we are visiting my family in Michigan. I have 3 older brothers that still live there and my dad is there for summers. Each year my boys and I spend a few weeks enjoying lake living and it gives my boys and family members to get to know one another. It’s so important to me that my boys have an opportunity to know “my family” because living so far away from them we don’t have daily, weekly or monthly chances to connect.
Our first night at the lake house, I took the boys down to watch the sunset. As I sit there watching them play around on the sand I had this overwhelming feeling of happiness. Being able to give my children these opportunities in life gives me pure joy. When giving children experiences that they will carry with them throughout their lives is so much better then giving them material things…don’t you think?
So, now I’ve told you what is making me happy these days….now it’s your turn! What is making you happy? My friends over at Happy Family will be sharing what makes them happy starting today and throughout the rest of the month. Join the fun and share with Happy Family what is making you happy and you could win some fabulous prizes.
