August Happiness Challenge - Day One



I've found out from Southern Girl that this is the month for the August Happiness Challenge. In honor of the month, I created the happy button above. Feel free to snatch it, if you like, and join in the challenge: to write about something that makes you happy every day in the month of August.

And, with this being day one, I have to tell you what makes me happiest is my family.

Bob and I truly enjoy each other's company.. and it's a good thing, since we work together. :-)



I have the best family in the world and I'm very proud of all our kids. They are great and it's wonderful to have them in my life.

What about you? Why don't you join me for the August Happiness Challenge?

Well, it seems I'm a day late to the party, but I'd like to take you up on this challenge...sounds like a fun one (I'll post two things today, how's that?!)

BIG problem with that second picture. You (or someone, maybe it wasn't you) cut the two in the back off! And I am 99% sure that the two in the back are you and Bob. Nice looking family, though. :) You have reason to be proud.

Awww, what a great post, and thanks for coming out to say hi at MM! When I update my sidebar, I'll add your blog! Thanks again!

I only posted so far, things that I've had issues over. But, I know a ton of happy things that are also keeping me through each day.

I'll definitely give it a try, if not everyday.. at least once a week.

I am going to join in!! I think it's funny that no one seems to really know where this originated!! :)

But it's a great idea!

I love August because it means that September will soon be here. I detest hot weather....

But, my garden is overflowing and soon I will be canning and freezing and then be all set for the winter winds....now THAT is comforting and happy.

I'm glad that your family is the very first thing you wrote about! You all look so happy together!

My family's what makes me happiest in the world too. Also feeding the ducks at our local duck pond with my daughter, seeing sunlight through tree leaves in the park and walking by the river. Today we are off to visit husband at his work at lunchtime, thus allowing us to combine all my great loves - family and outdoors, since we'll all be together and his work place is in the countryside - close to lots of nature. My cup runneth over!

Thank you so much for your uplifting comment on my blog about packing up my house to move! =) The journal idea was wonderful and my famiy and I intend to use it!

I would love to be part of the August Happiness Challenge - even though I'm starting on Day 6, so i think I may "snatch" your button and get started! =)

You have a lovely family - love the pictures. I'll be sure to look at your other Happiness posts, too! =) My husband and family are also my greatest, most important "happiness" here on earth!
