Having my husband and children around the dinner table.
A big pot of ham and bean soup, and fresh, hot homemade bread.
Pets that snuggle up with me when the winter nights get cold.
Children who climb into the attic all by themselves to retrieve the Christmas decorations.
Children who decorate, and clean up after they're done.
Children who climb back up to the attic with all of the empty boxes.
( I know, I'm spoiled!)
Freshly fallen snow beckoning the children out to play.
Hot chocolate and marshmallows to warm cold fingers and noses.
Bright eyes and big smiles.
An ironing pile that is almost depleted.
A list of cookies waiting to be baked.
Dim rooms illuminated by Christmas trees.
Candles on the dinner table.
What's making you happy?
