First I want to thank you for your hugs on my last post. One thing about driving so far to the vet is I have a ton of time to think. There really has been soooooooooo much sadness everywhere. It can suck you down into a pit like quick sand. I decided I need some happy! Like lots of happy! So moving forward, every Friday really is going to be Hoppy/Happy Friday.
I'm going list a few things from the week that made me happy and I am grateful for. I invite you to share what made you happy too. This always helps me to focus on the positive and remember that happiness really is a way of life.
So to start off this Friday, Hannah and I would like to thank Rene' for purchasing the mini quilt! Rene' and her husband have been taking care of rescue rabbits for 25 years. They currently have four who share their home. Plus, she is a quilter. Thank you! :)
Next, I am really happy I got to spend time and go see Captain's mom last weekend. I have been trying to visit since March. We went to a craft show while we were there. I haven't been to one in years and even though there are more and more "made in China" vendors, I was happy to see there were still a few vendors who made things by hand. I fell in love with this bunny tassel. Captain purchased it for me as a gift. Thank you Captain!
I think it looks perfect hanging there.
One thing I really love about this time of year is the sunlight in the late afternoon. The way it sparkles off the pond in my back yard always reminds me of my grammy who loved sparkly things. Seeing this felt like getting a hug from her that everything is going to be ok.
I also love the way the way this light floods my living room late in the day. It's soft and comforting.
Speaking of soft light, I love this little fella. His face is just so cute and makes me smile.
I love how he shines his light on all his friends.
My house is very open. Most people who visit, enter through the side door, aka, the friend door. This is the view they see. Of all the decorating schemes I have had over the years, this one is the real me and makes me feel truly at home. David really loves it too even if there are bunnies everywhere. ;)
David loves his job. He's been at it for over 23 years. Even though this year has been awful with the furloughs, insurance hikes, and no raise again in over 5 years, he is grateful to have a job. We are even more grateful for his job because you see David helps to keep these planes, the V22 Osprey, in the air. He is an aircraft examiner and makes sure the planes are safe for flying by our men and women in the military. These are the planes that have been bringing much needed supplies and help to the people in the Philipines.
Finally, even though it is super hard running a small business and making money as an artist is challenging, I love the freedom. I can work whatever hours I want, when I want. Most of the time I work 12-16 hours a day, but it's my passion, so it doesn't feel like work. Plus, it allows me the freedom to help others, like driving a friend to a cancer treatment yesterday.
So there is my happiness for this week. What made you happy?
