The things that makes us happy is this week’s theme.
There is so much that makes me happy that I had a hard time choosing some examples. Aside from my family and friends, there are a few things that stand out for me.
- Travel – I love to travel, especially when there is a coast involved. One of my favourite destinations so far are the Greek Islands. I first traveled there backpacking with my husband many many years ago, and that trip started a life long love affair with the islands. We hope to one day perhaps to be able to find ourselves an island to settle down on.
- Flowers – It is fair to say that I love flowers; I am actually a trained florist, which should give some indication as to how much I love flowers. Just seeing a nice flower makes me happy and nothing more so when they are grown in our garden.
- Sunrises and Sunsets – I mean, who doesn’t love these? They remind me daily that I am alive and that I should cherish every moment.
- A trip home – Going home to Hannover in Germany always makes me happy (not when it is for funerals though). There is nothing quite like going home where you grew up.
