In junior high, Mr. Ray, my journalism teacher, wrote this is in my yearbook, "Strive to be happy."
The fact that I don't remember anything anyone else wrote tells you how much that statement has meant to me over the years.
So, this week, I thought I'd share some things that have brought me happiness.
The Sun. For a few days, the rain has abated and the sun is shining. As I write this, I hear a lawn mower in the distance, birds chirpping, and the light rustle of leaves on the trees. And it's supposed to be 75 today! What a good week to have Thursday off instead of Tuesday.
The Renaissance Faire is coming back to Oregon. I actually enjoy this more than the county fair--it's just a great atmosphere.
On Easter my sister baked a ham and there was enough leftovers for me to take home and make ham salad for sandwiches. I was so excited for lunch the next day that I actually thought, "Ham salad shouldn't make me this happy." But, why not?
The trailer for Me Before You. Yes, I saw it when it came out on the internet, but this week I saw it in the movie theater--and really, there is something to be said, about seeing things in the dark, on a huge screen, with lots of people around you. Ohhh--I loved the book and the movie looks amazing.
And finally, Disney Lego Minifigures. Seriously. I am so excited about these. There's not one in there that I don't want.
And lastly, because finally wasn't enough--I'm happy that I finally came up with a post to share with you all. And it'd make me even happier if you'd share what makes you happy.
