{Finding your happy heart}

if you pursue happiness....it will elude you
but
if you focus on your family....friends...
the needs of others...
the ability to see good things in unexpected places
....happiness will find you
~
Hope you can find your happy heart today!

Please don't tell me that your Hydrangas are still that wonderful, still that pink, still full of such happiness. Once again a stunning picture from your arsenal of photos. What a happy way to start my day. Inspiration to wander out in the world of color and find the simple things.

Smiling from ear to ear,
Kate

Auntie Bliss said...

Dear One,
"It's my happy heart I hear, singing loud and singing clear and it's all because your near"~~ Love this old Andy Williams song~~ You are so right. You find what you are looking for...always!

you are so wise for such a young thing. joy comes
so unexpectedly, when we are not looking for it.

it also can come right on the heels of heartache.

love those blue shoes!

You always have such wonderful words of wisdom here ... and the best feet/leg shots! Hard as I try, mine never turn out as cute. (Maybe it's because the legs and feet in my photos aren't skinny with adorable shoes!)

Suz said...

Thanks, Koralee,I usually have my "happy heart" and that is exactly how I find it. Today I am not feeling good physically and I it is eluding me. I think the key is just what you have said...time to done something for others. I have three friends who I am making Halloween boxes for. Time to get busy with those. I know it will make my happy heart come back!
Big hugs and thanks!
Suz
