You know what makes me happy?
Everyone doing everything I ask them, and to do it in the way I want them to do it!
Nah, not really.
That’s ridiculous cos you can never make anyone do anything they a) don’t wanna do, and b) they could never do it to my standards anyway.
(OK, yes, really, it would make me very happy. Very happy indeed.)
Simpler things, however, have a way of putting a smile on my face without my even being aware of it.
My children doing the most incredibly stupid stuff and my laughing at their expense.
Yellow ones, like Sunshine Lilies from FreshFlowers, and gerberas in particular, are my favourite. They look … I don’t know … sunny and happy
Like a big, happy, smile.
My spirits are subconsciously lifted when I have a blooming yellowness on my kitchen bench.
Unfortunately, they don’t grace my kitchen area anywhere near often enough, because it’s not something I think to buy for myself.
I am also not naïve enough to expect others to buy them for me, although after fifteen years together, my husband finally realised that they do make me happy.
He never likes to buy flowers, but only because he spent ten years running a wedding reception venue, spent hundreds of dollars each week on flowers, and the thought just made him twitch – I get it, it’s not a complaint.
But he did surprise me late last year with a delightful bunch of ALL the yellowness.
Maybe I do need to do those little things that take bugger all time, but do make a difference to my day, even though I don’t realise it … hook up with someone who’ll deliver flowers to me on a regular basis.
Yeah, that’d be nice.
Of course, it’s always nice to simply have some smiles and happiness delivered to someone else’s door.
When’s the last time happiness bloomed in your house?
And when did you last send some happy someone else’s way?
What did you do?
