Do you know WHY I do a Happy List each week?
I believe that what you pay attention to grows. Bask in the HAPPY and more HAPPY will find you.
Optimism can be learned, did you know that?
Check out the Parenting for Possibilities Fishful Thinking website.
You will thank me for this...and your kids will thank YOU!
Now on to MY Happy List!
This quote was sent to me by a dear friend:
"When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the
most us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much
advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and
touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand. The friend who can be
silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with
us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing,
not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our
powerlessness, that is a friend who cares." -Henri Nouwen
She wrote me a beautiful letter full of love, support and encouragement.
It was EXACTLY what I needed at EXACTLY the right time. HAPPY
I am so deeply grateful for her friendship.
