How To Mix Our Happiness Into Our Day

Author:

Taking What We Do

Mixing it with what we already know

Like making our own hit song

We all know the words

When we arrange them in a certain order

They speak louder than before

They talk to us

As if the song was written for us

In reality, many people feel the same way

We like to think it is a personal experience

It can be also a shared moment in time

Where so many have been

Now we can all love it again and again

I love when my wife and I are off from work

We make the most of our day

Doing all the regular things that have to get done

Food shopping and car appointments

Then there is part of the day

That gives us real joy

A feeling of togetherness

Bonding on a beautiful level

Finding so much joy

In seeing each other laugh

Not just hoping

But finding ways of creating that fun

Racing out of the brutal hot heat

Turning up the air conditioner full blast

Drinking water that we forgot to keep out of the heat of the sun

Warm and telling each other

We won't do that again

Even though we have done it

So many times in the past

Playing with our cat Charlotte

Patting her when she loves it the most

Talking about our day

Fixing meals when we get hungry

Each helping the other

Letting all the joy from one moment blend into the next

When this day is done

We know we did all we can

To make our life special

Like a river that flows far and wide

It always goes in one direction

Even though it can go from side to side

Chrish Canosa I am thrilled you are doing just fine. The important thing is to keep a level head when you have troubles that get you down. Working on one problem at a time may be slow but it keeps us from losing our minds. You are always a breath of fresh air. Anytime you have a spare moment it is nice to see you drop by. Power hugs received and are coming back at you tenfold. I stayed home because of a storm and I was planning on spending more time with Charlotte. She got up and left me. She headed to a back room. She definitely has a mind of her own. Thank you for reading and sharing. The possibilities are limitless. Keep trying to do your best. You have my wife, me and Charlotte all cheering you on. Have a fun day.

Peggy Woods To most people we may seem unnoticeable and almost invisible. With a trained eye. I spy. I dig into the nuts and bolts and see how and why it works. I am still searching for answers. I may not know many things about science and in any different specialized fields of expertise. I know the feeling of passion. The love comes connected. Joined unknowingly from the start. I am not sure what came first. I find it a challenge. Like taking a beautiful egg. Crack it open and try putting the pieces back together. They never fit just right. Maybe we are supposed to spend our lives trying. Bringing love together from every direction instead of just one. All I know is I feel great. I believe my wife feels the same way or better. Then we have to be doing something right. It is fun and also hard to share the most intimate part of our lives. With practice, we can find a respectful way. There are so many books telling us what is wrong with our day and our life. All trying to tell us to do this instead of that. I like to see one book that says if you don't get it right keep trying and if you are both happy don't stop. Maybe one day. Thank you for reading and bringing joy to my heart and my mind. My love goes deeper than the page that I print on. It goes on and on and on. It is a hard thing to put into words. I believe it can be done. With practice and over time. Did I ever tell you that you have a very pretty profile picture that tells me you are pretty happy. I am glad to see happiness spread all over the world. It all starts one picture at a time. Seven days ago you posted this comment. I have read it over a few times. Waiting for the right moment when words just pop. Now was the time. Happy morning to you. Make it a wonderful day.

Chrish Canosa I am so happy to hear from you. I will check my spam box. I thought I looked and didn't see anything. I will check again. At my age, things start to get a little foggy. Not to worry it was only the weather this time. All your power hugs are well received and appreciated. Especially from our cat Charlotte. Lately, she has been kind of self-centered and stuck up. I think she is a little into herself. Maybe she is just moody. Whenever you get a chance keep the happiness flying off the shelf. That is one thing the world needs. A love and a loving heart that expands more each day. I hope you are doing well. Taking care of yourself and don't forget your family. Life is short. We can make it the best it can be. So one day we can all be happy. Thank you for commenting and sharing. For eight days this comment has been on my light blue screen. I have read it over and over again. Today is the day. I post a return. I love it so much. No stamp is needed.

John Hansen We take one day at a time. One day I hope it will all rhyme. Some days are just hours that fade into our past. Then there are times if I was born in the 1930's I would strike up the band and probably play all night. Fun can be created at any time. If we both are willing and able. It is not always where you go or how much you have. I think life is so much more than that. I think it is who you are with and how you learn to make the day shine even if it is hot, humid, and raining outside. Wishing you and your family a world of happiness. My wife deserves most of the credit. I also have done my fair share. She has learned to see me deep in thought. Then she finds a way to pull those thoughts out and crazy as it seems makes them dance and shout. The funniest part of all is I can't dance. Thank you for reading and sharing. Eight days ago you left this comment. That is a week I had to dive into my unconscious. Then in the end see what the cat dragged in. Happy morning to you.

I liked reading about the things that you and your wife experience on a daily basis. It is the small things that can matter most in life.
