Half Full Friday... on Saturday this week. :-)

“Happiness lies in those who cry, those who have been hurt, those who have searched and those who have tried. For only they can appreciate the importance of people who have touched their lives." ~ Unknown
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?
“It doesn't matter how long we may have been stuck in a sense of our limitations. If we go into a darkened room and turn on the light, it doesn't matter if the room has been dark for a day, a week, or ten thousand years -- we turn on the light and it is illuminated. Once we control our capacity for love and happiness, the light has been turned on." ~ Sharon Salzberg
For the next week, we challenge you to keep a list of at least one thing that brought you happiness each day.

I'm Happy and Thankful for many things every day... especially this week:
  • For finally closing on the house and for the perfect buyer! God's plan for sure!
  • For all the help I got moving into my new place!!  I appreciate everyone so much!!  
  • For loving my new Home!!  It may take a little getting used to the beautiful deer looking in my patio door... but it's awesome living by a forest!!

Have a Wonderful long weekend, everyone!!
Hugs and Much Love to you All,

  1. Hello, We are home from our wonderful trip... We loved it --but there's nothing like HOME.

    Congrats on the new home and for selling the other one... I'm so happy for you. Share photos of the new home for us... Living by the woods, huh??? How awesome is that!!!!

  2. What a wonderful idea! Having a deer outside my door would bring me joy too!

  3. So happy for you in your new home and selling the other one. I would love to live near the woods with deer, as long as they don't come inside, lol!

    God bless and have a great week-end!

  4. Thanks for keeping this going even though I didn't host it this week.

    Having a deer peer in my door might freak me out a bit but then I think it would make me happy too!
