If You're Happy And You Know It

Day fourteen: 10 things that make you really happy! 
These three people make me happy. They support me, they encourage me and they love me. Maybe family is obligated to do and be all of these things but mine is extra, super-duper good at it and they are truly my best friends. 

This baby. Oh my goodness does she make my heart happy?! I have fallen completely in love with Baby M over the past 11 weeks. If you haven't read her story, you need to. Happy, happy, happy!

Maybe this one speaks for itself because who doesn't love that relaxing sound of the waves crashing onto the shore or looking out onto the never ending horizon. The ocean makes me feel small and reminds me how big God is. To me, it represents peace and refuge. It's my happy place.
Sweet, sweet summertime just puts a smile on my face. The sunshine, the warmth - It's right up there with ocean, just love it! In the South, we get some blazing weather this time of the year. Last summer, I was out of the country for close to three months and I missed all the great things I love about this season. This year, we are making up for lost time!

It is like God is giving permission for me to stay inside, cuddle up and just listen to the rain fall on the roof. I love a thunder storm and a summer rain is literally one of my favorite things, ever. I think rain is romantic and beautiful. LOVE!

Singing to the top of my lungs when I am really sad or really happy is the best. I like a variety of music - pretty much anything will fit the bill except some extreme stuff. No screaming, no whining. Luke Bryan fixes anything that ails my little heart.
Jamie Ivey tells some of the BEST adoption stories ever, not to mention her stories with her own children. Adoption is something very near and dear to my heart and someday I hope to make it part of my family. After all, we are adopted into the family/body of Christ and He gives us the ultimate example. Adoption is love in it's rawest form and reading about it or seeing it, oh my soul! 
Yes, it's true. When you people comment on my silly ramblings or thoughts, it makes me so very happy! There are so many nice people in this world and to know that you stopped by my little space of the world wide web and thought it was worthy of your time to make a comment it awesome! I love it!! Thank you, blog friends, for making me happy.
Maybe I am just really weird but I love doing the laundry, I love folding the laundry, putting it away. It's relaxing to me! The smell of clean laundry, ahhhhh so fresh and so clean. It's the simple things, my friends. 

Last but certainly not least, is spending time in the word or in prayer with my sweet Jesus. There is nothing else that brings me closer to my heavenly father than time together. It makes for a better start to my day, a better solution to my problems and a sweet release of my worries and fears. God is so good.
