Making every day life as a mom just a little bit sweeter.

May Moving Madness~Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy! May 12, 2010

You remember that, don’t you?  C’mon….admit it!  Whether you were a fan or not, everyone remembers the Wren and Stimpy Happy Happy Joy Joy song!  I hear you!!!  You’re singing it now, aren’t you?  Hee hee!  Well, I was never a huge fan, but I certainly remember that song.  That was it!  The WHOLE song!  Just Happy Happy, Joy Joy!  Simple, huh?  Here is a list of my simple Happy Happy Joy Joy thoughts:

Happy – Having a God who knows and loves me enough to put up with me..forever.

If I thought it would help, I’d pray for Him.

Happy – Having a husband who has loved me enough over the past 14 years to really find out what makes me smile, and doing it…with a smile.

Joy – Watching my three daughters laugh and joke around like the best of friends…

even after a full day of home-schooling together, doing chores, packing boxes, and going to the dentist.

Joy – Knowing that no matter what, we can live with the glass full, not just half-full.  That’s something to celebrate…that’s living a life of total happiness…total Grace.


This is the particular glass that I have full this morning.

Well, paper cup, anyway…

Life is good…life is happy. 

What’s your Happy Happy Joy Joy this morning?

    I only have one daughter now, but I can certainly see how joyous it is to have children who grow up together and who’re bound to each other not just by blood but by a deep friendship that runs down the marrow of their bone.

    Your happy happy joy joy seem absolutely wonderful to me. Here’s to happiness!

  5. Starbucks makes everything more fun!! 🙂

  6. Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy…shock! I am thinking that my two 2 yr/old boys are going to be potty trained very soon. ONLY 3 days so far, but they are already saying that they have to go potty, in underwear, and NO accidents so far! I am one HAPPY Momma!

    Happiness means sitting in silence with a hot cup of coffee on a cool morning.

    We must be on the same wavelength today…I posted about what made my heart happy. It was totally inspired by your recent post about “what you can’t see” I loved that you wrote it made your heart happy…so last night when I couldn’t sleep, I thought about what truly made MY heart happy.
    Wonderful post, I love it.
