What makes me happy? It is a simple enough question yet I was a bit challenged. I think too much! However when I put the task aside my happy staples were pretty much staring me in the face saying “hello, we’re right here”. So I’m sharing them with you! What makes you happy?
Mothers are amazing. OK, some have the potential. That is to say, mine is. See, she is the greatest Dream Keeper. She gave me this necklace. I was over the moon when I received it.
