I would say that I am generally a happy person.  Although I am not one of those people who jump right out of bed in the morning with a huge smile on their face and say, “I’m ready to start the day!”  I try, I do.  But I have to work at being happy.  Don’t get me wrong, I am so blessed to have what I have in my life.  I have three beautiful children, a wonderful, supportive husband and great friends and family.  But sometimes life can get in the way of that enduring happiness.  That is what I need to work at every day.  The daily grind of so-called life, where your child misses the bus, the dog had an accident on the carpet and your toddler is having a meltdown because the dog ate her toast, all before 8:30 am.  That’s where I need to take a step back, take a breath and realize that all will be OK!  That is my daily intent to bring a little happiness into my life.  I have it all around me.  No matter if I’m chopping vegetables for dinner or watching Elmo with my little one.  I need to stop, breathe and take in the moment.  That will be my little handful of happiness.  How do you find happiness?
