Happiness & gratitude for the small things

Happiness & gratitude for the small things

happiness

When I started counting my blessings my whole life turned around
~ Willie Nelson

Sometimes we make things harder than we have to, we look for complicated ways to get the things we want, even happiness. Maybe if we just paid attention to the little things, the good things that happen to us each day, we might find we have all we need to make us happy.

Just a few of the things that made me smile today:

* Seeing a post I missed with my little niece in her Halloween costume
* Having a Ministry of Happiness post go viral
* Having a few people tell me that my leaving my job is a loss for my school
* Potstickers
* A pleasant walk on a surprisingly warn November day
* Packing for a mini vacation I’m taking for the next few days

Take a few minutes and make your own list and have a happy day my friends ~ Rev Kane
