Half Full Friday is a series of weekly posts that Eye Girl originally started in June 2009. Now the it is hosted by Sprinkles at Wyldechylde. We believe that a lot of our happiness is determined by our attitude about the things that happen to us. So by participating, we are deciding to see the glass as half full, instead of half empty. We are choosing to concentrate on the positives, instead of dwelling on the negatives. Our Half Full Friday posts are a way to do just that. They are a list of the things in our life that have brought us happiness over the past week. We are determined to find the something good in every day. Are you?"Realize that true happiness lies within you. Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside. Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. Love. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself." ~Og Mandino
- For honestly being very hopeful and happy every day!
- For 'trusting' each day things will work out in my life!
- For seeing old friends and classmates soon!

My question: When my sons were younger it seemed easier to show them how much I love them. Hugs, doing things with them, daily conversations and saying 'I love you' everyday."The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved -- loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves." ~Victor Hugo
How do you show Love to older children who have started their own lives and moved far away?
Although I wanted them to start their own lives and am very proud of them, it's still hard having them so far away. However knowing my sons love me and that they know how much I love them back, makes it so much easier!
"To love and be loved is the greatest happiness of existence." ~unknownHave a beautiful weekend full of Love!!
