Sunshine on my shoulder makes me happy

It’s a gorgeous outside right now. I went outside to talk to my man and sip on my venti, iced, soy, white mocha. I closed my eyes and felt the warm sun shine on my pale skin. I miss that so much, sitting outside, soaking up the sun, it felt so good.
I listened to my husband talk, his voice soothed me. He reassured me everything is going to be ok. He’s so happy I’m working on getting better. He worries about me, but he doesn’t run away and hide. He’s right there, next to me, telling me it will be ok. He is a good man.
I could hear my children playing in the front yard. Their laughter made me smile. I remember those days when I was a kid and everything was so simple and fun. Not a care in the world, except who’s team I would be on when we played games or if Jimmy, the neighborhood hunk, would notice me that day, maybe even smile at me. I miss that childlike innocence.
It’s amazing how sometimes happiness is literally as close as your own backyard, but you just can’t see it because you’re too afraid to open the door and experiece it. Once you do, you can’t understand why you have been denying yourself that kind of joy.
The simple things in life, I forgot how important they really are.
I’m so glad I was reminded of them today.

    It sounds like a wonderful Saturday. I miss the sun. We have snow here today *insert crash internet curse words here* and it doesn’t look much better for tomorrow.
    But I get to spend the afternoon home alone which is a simple enough treat for me. I’m sure I can manage to get into some kind of mischief.
    Happy (early) Mother’s Day.
    Hugs.

    I am so happy that you are feeling better and more optomistic!!! Enjoy your day, and catch a few rays for me, here in Jersey it is overcast, dreary and getting ready to rain, so I am spending the day inside with a good book!!! Enjoy!!!
