… My daughter jumping into MY arms instead of husband’s after her first sleepover.
That’s right, I am gushing over kiddo choosing me to run to instead of husband. It was a moment I do not get often, so I relished in it.
… An adult conversation between two people who do not always agree, but respect and love each other enough to carry on a fantastic discussion.
Husband and I went on our first date in about a year, and we had a great conversation at dinner. I miss those conversations. You know, the kind where it’s about a serious topic dealing with society, and neither usually agree, but it was wonderful anyway. On top of that, we actually agreed!
… Sleeping in.
I do not think this needs an explanation.
… The moment you realize you actually feel like yourself, even if it’s a more tired version.
I had that moment this weekend, yesterday actually. I’m tired, and always seem to be, but I realized I felt normal again. I was walking into the kitchen to get something to drink, and something lit up in my head. This is what I am supposed to feel like! I still have moments where I’m sad and angry, but it’s not as often anymore. I have some things I need to work on, like the laziness I have developed over the last four years, but I feel good. I haven’t been able to say that in a long time.
What is happiness for you?
