I’m happy today because:

– My wonderful parents watch my son every day while I’m at work and I know they’re just having the best time with him, and vice versa!

– My son is obsessed with our Christmas tree and I love seeing his face light up when I turn it on every day

– My husband is doing well at his new job <3

– My back feels better (I have herniated discs and was worried it would be feeling bad for a while)

– Coffee exists and is readily available!

I’m happy as it’s 4pm on Friday!! Work finishes for the year in 2 weeks and and I have a summer break 😍. 

The sun is shining outside. I’m super excited for a Christmas bbq tomorrow and then a road trip on Sunday with my husband to the beach.

I have a family that loves me. I’m healthy and I’m making positive changes to my fitness lately.  

Yay 😍😍😍😍😍

  • We have had our puppy for a week and he’s doing remarkably well! 
  • Our puppy has brought my husband and I even closer than we were before. It sounds sappy but we feel more like a family-even though he is not a human infant. 
  • We’re going to up our Christmas tree tomorrow. 
  • My brother is spending the day with us tomorrow. He’s my favorite sibling. 
  • It’s the weekend!

I’m happy because I’m home this weekend after travelling a lot, and have no plans except relaxing with my dog and husband and being a couch potato. I’m also happy because the sun is shining and it’s gloriously warm.

I’m happy because even though I have a horribly painful and heavy period, I’m snuggled up in bed with a cup of tea and Darling Husband just brought me scrambled eggs for breakfast and we’re gonna have a lazy day together. Plus it’s grey outside so don’t need to feel guilty for staying in!

I’m happy today because

This is the first year that we are hosting Christmas Eve dinner in our house.

We are expecting our first bundle of joy and everything is going well.

We are finished Christmas shopping and all I have left to do is wrap up two gifts.

I am happy today because I spent the day with my daughter, getting our hair done and shopping. 

I am grateful my eldest son is having a great first year at college.

I am delighted my 16 year old is still excited about Christmas.

And I am excited that there are only nine more school days until Winter Break!

Thank you for starting a positive thread! I try to see the positive effects n all things, but especially in my own life and outlook on things. I’ve read all of the comments and everyone had such wonderful things to say. And congrats on your PhD! 

I’m thankful for:

-my fiance. We are the happiest we have ever been, which is saying a lot, so we have had a wonderful 11 years together thus far. 

-my unicorn dog. He is perfect and such a special spirit. I’m so very thankful for him

-im thankful for such a warm home and a good job that I enjoy

-a car that is reliable

-christmas time is my very favorite, I’m so thankful to be newly engaged during this season that is full of love

-that my life is virtually stress free from any major stressors. 

-im actually thankful for wedding planning. It has been such a joy and an experience that I will only get to experience once, and I am enjoying every minute of it. I am also thankful that we do not have to stress too much about it as it is so far exactly how we would want it

-so much more
