Half Full & Aloha Friday Question!

"The more we express our gratitude to God for our blessings, the more he will bring to our mind.. other blessings.  The more we are aware of to be grateful for, ther happier we become." !Ezra Taft Benson  
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?
“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.”  ~G.K. Chesterton
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 a very nice Thanksgiving!  
  • For beautiful weather!
  • For so much to be thankful for! 
  • For not having to go shopping today!!
  • For making Christmas plans.
  • For hearing from all my sons!  
  • For the deer that entertain us daily!! 
  • For listening to my intuition.
  • For nice maintenance staff. 
"To be happy with simple pleasures, is no simple matter." ~Anonymous
It's also "ALOHA FRIDAY" Everyone!!  If you want to join in the fun? Post your own question on your blog and leave your link at the Aloha Friday post at An Island Life. Then you can visit the other participants if you wish...It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends or see what people are thinking about this week and join in a conversation or two if you like.
"If you have just a little fun today, it's a sign that maybe the future will hold even more fun for you.  Fun isn't just fun ~ it's Hope." ~Linda Richman   
My question:  What kind of fun do you have during the holidays?

My answer:  We play active video games; and other games during the holidays and family gatherings.   
"The more fun you have, the greater your value to yourself and to your society.  The more fun you share with others, the more fun you have." ~unknown
Have a safe Black Friday!!
Hugs and Many Blessings,

  4. Just catching up with the grandkids and watching them interact with each other is a huge blessing to us!!
