Little Things That Make Us Happy

Little things are responsible for our happiness. We call them little things because they happen to us every day and we tent to let them pass unnoticed. But there´s where the happy thoughts responsible for out happiness are coming from. When we smile or when someone smiles to us fills our hearts with happiness. It´s so easy to smile... and because of that we think it´s not so important. We came to think that only the things we strugle for are important. That´s soooo wrong. We are happy holding the loved one in our arms, we are happy when we feel the smell of rain or the smell of the forest, first snow makes us happy, chocolate, dinnner with family... Here´s where the happiness is. A new house takes time to become a home, a new house is new only untill it becomes a home... And the real happiness is not in the new house but in the home it becomes. A new house is a big step in our lives... but it´s an empty accomplishment as long as it doesn´t become a home, part from out legacy. Going home makes us happy, entering a new house no that much. The happiness is in the meaning of the things, not in the things themselves.

That is so true...I lost my Dad just a year ago....I haven't lived there for 13 years... but nothing brings me more piece "or happyness" that walking into that house. The little old farm house, that some say should just be torn down. That house will always be home...He made it home and filled it with so much love, and so many memories...kudo's for hitting the nail on the head.

This thought made me realize what does real happiness means...it only shows that real happiness can be foun if we just learn how to appreciate all simple things in life..also of having contentment on what we have..and i can say that i found it by having a happy family thats always there for me everytime i need them..:-)

Oh! Loved reading your blog! I found your site by googling my own... happythought42day! I love all the little things in life. Like antenna toppers and funny magnetic bumper stickers! My kids and I are well known for topping friends' cars with goofy decorations. Some friends tag us back. Some drive around for months with the goofy items displayed. Some friends "swap" toppers when they see our car. But they all make me laugh! I'm tagging this blog and adding it to my favorites and my blogroll! Thanks for the Happy Thoughts!!!!
