If I could just lose these 20 pounds!
If we could afford to give more to others,
If I could just be more organized by installing closet organizers,
Happiness isn't in the distant future, it's today.
It's in the smile of a sleepy 2 year old,
The laughter of a joke that's only shared between parents,
It's the beauty of a blooming spring, happening right out my front window,
It's in feeling that connection to Our Lord during Holy Communion,
It's the bonding of mothers who share a common goal,
It's the thrill of going downhill after a seemingly difficult uphill bike ride,
It's in the acknowledgement of opening a thank you note,
It's in the wonder of a nighttime full of stars,
The comfort from a genuine hug,
It's holding a sleeping bundle of a new baby,
The joy of a family gathering,
It's the breath of a new morning,
The discovery of truth,
And it's in realizing that happiness doesn't just happen to us, we must be aware that it is happening right here, right now....and no purchase necessary!
