Health and Happiness – #CelebrateTheSmallThings – 15 May 2015


Last week was pretty rough around our house, and apparently around the town. TheBoy brought home his sickness and gave it to me. Then I, in turn, gave it to TheHubs. TheBoy was pretty much over it in a day. Oh to have that immune system! I think he gets that from TheHubs because he can get over the cold or the flu in a few days. There have been, however, several years in our marriage where he just couldn’t overcome it that quickly. This year is that type of year. So last week we were all sick and trying to get over it. Plus, TheHubs took a serious tumble off the porch, tore up his knee, and cranked his neck – which doesn’t help his chronic neck issues. On the positive side, we’re getting through it all! 🙂

So today, I am celebrating:

  1. Health. We are all getting over the ick.
  2. We celebrated another anniversary on the 12th. Our 25th Wedding Anniversary (married in the eyes of the Lord). We’ve been married 25 years, 4 months, and 20 days. We were married by the JOP in December (married in the eyes of the law), and in mid-January he deployed for a training exercise in Korea. It was only supposed to have been 45 days. It ended up being 4 months and some days. I was planning our church wedding the whole time he was away. I was starting to get nervous we would miss it but he made it -6 days before our wedding date.
  3. We went out to eat for our anniversary dinner and decided to share our happiness with the waiter and gave him a really nice tip. I doubt he saw it before we left. Oh to be a fly on the wall when he did finally see it. 🙂
  4. This morning, I made breakfast for everyone and we all sat at the table and ate it. This doesn’t happen very often at all. And I felt very blessed for it today.

I love my family so much! And I love making other people happy! But most of all, I am so blessed to be happy myself!

What are you celebrating this week? 

Thank you to our lovely host, Lexa Cain for taking over and continuing the Celebrate the Small Things blog hop. I would also like to thank her co-hosts, L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge and Katie @ TheCyborgMom – without them, I’m sure this would be a daunting task!

To be part of this blog hop, all you have to do is put your name on the linky list on Lexa’s Blog, and then post every Friday about something you’re grateful  for that week.  It can be about writing or family or school or general life.  This is the funnest and easiest blog hop ever! (Originated by VikLit)

    Happy Anniversary! It must have been nerve-wracking not to know if he’d make it home for the wedding, but he did and now you get to celebrate twice a year! I love the Voltaire quote in the beginning – it’s so true. Have a lovely weekend!

    Sorry I “unfollowed” you on Twitter. It froze my acct until I had more followers than I was following. Argh! But after 2 weeks, now I do, so I’m going to follow you again now! 🙂
