Be Happy!

I like to think that I am a happy person.  I have so many blessings in my life it's hard to think of a reason not to be happy... 

That being said, I do get frustrated sometimes.  

Like when Griffin is crying and Ammon asks me what I did to him.  Like I wanted my baby to cry so I dropped him or put hot sauce on his tongue...  

No.  

Sometimes babies cry and they'll keep crying til you figure out what it is they want.  

I know he doesn't mean anything by it.  He's just joking with me but, it gets me really frustrated. 

 -or- 

When I'm driving behind a slow person.  Not a "slow person" but a slow driver.  I hate that...

-or-

Having to get up 4 or 5 times per night with the baby.  I swear I haven't slept in 7 months.

You get the point.

This week, I am choosing to be happy.  

Happy about life's ups and downs.  

Happy about the differences between Ammon and I.  

Happy about slowing down to see the beauty around me.  

And even happy about the fact that my baby depends on me and loves me so much.

It should be a great week and I'm excited to live it with my loves.

Join me.  Be Happy!
