Let’s have some appreciation today!

The five things that make me happy today are:

  1. Coffee. Need I say more?
  2. Knowing supper is already cooked and I can hang out with my kids this afternoon at the pool without having to rush them to get home in order to cook supper. (I put up a Jambalaya in the crockpot this morning before 8 am).
  3. Knowing that two of my friends met randomly today and recognized each other thru knowing me.
  4. Seeing my fridge and pantry well stocked.
  5. Hearing that they make poutine in Teaneck and that I don’t have to trek to Montreal to feed my habit!

What are your five?

    Should this list be a list of things that made us happy today only or that make us happy every day?

    BTW, where do they sell poutine in Teaneck? I need to get some for me and my hubby. He loves fries and gravy and I love fries and cheese.

    1. I am thankful to G-d every day that I wake up and open my eyes and I can see, that I am healthy, and that I can walk.
    2. I am thankful that I have a wonderful husband who I am always in awe of.
    3. I am thankful that G-d blessed us with children that I love so much.
    4. I am thankful for the great friends I have who are always there for me.
    5. I am thankful that I can go grocery shopping and can pay the bill.
    I write all this with a big bli ayin horah!

  4. 1. Coffee – after all it is the sweet elixer of life.
    2. I woke up to dear Hubby holding my hand
    3. The little guy took his nap without a fuss
    4. Hubby has the day off tomorrow so he and I might actually get alone time

    & I am happy to know that I am the cause of 2 out of the 5 things above for which you are grateful Hadassah ;)!

    & BH there are many things in my life that I am grateful for on a daily basis & I only hope that the good things in my life will continue for many years to come with G-d’s help! I think that when we stop to count our blessings it takes away the focus on the less than perfect things in our lives that we all (or most of us at least) have to do deal with b/c that’s all part of life-the good & the not-so-good but it’s always helpful to look at the “cup of life” as being half full rather than half empty!
