Mommy’s Happy List

happy happinessIt has been said from time to time that “we are in control of our own happiness,” but let me change that phrase just a bit to “Mommy makes her own happiness.”

In fact, Mommy does make her own happiness, and it all begins with the first moment you get to finally hold your baby in your arms. The happiness flows from the happiness of our children to our own hearts. As the days unfold, I can think of many happy moments that make my heart smile. My Mommy Happy List consists of many different moments that we may overlook, but when we sit and think about them, our hearts smile.
