Half Full Friday...better late than never. :-)

"True happiness arises in the first place from enjoyment of oneself." ~Joseph Addition
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?
"Open your arms and welcome a happy day!"
For the next week, we challenge you to keep a list of at least one thing that brought you happiness each day.  After a busy, eventful week, I'm especially thankful for:
  • my son's scholarship to the Leadership Forum!
  • enjoying something everyday this week! 
  • antibiotics and feeling better!! :-)  
"When you finally allow yourself to trust joy and embrace it, you will find you dance with everything." ~Emanuel
Have a terrific weekend, Everyone!!
Blessings & Hugs,
