Happy for no reason....


Have you ever gotten lost in the internet? I mean, really lost.... you had plenty of things to do, pages to make, dishes to put away, clothes to fold, but you sat mindlessly clicking away??? I mean, if you are reading this blog, I bet you know what I am talking about! :) I try not to get lost.... I try to do what I need to do, read something on CNN (so I have SOME clue what is going on in the world) and check a few blogs (thanks to bloglines, this task is WAY more efficient because I only look at blogs I love that have been updated).... and then logout and get on with my night. Tonight, I was tired.... too tired to go get a glass of water (what the heck is my problem anyway??) and I was clicking away. I love how amazon tells me books I would enjoy (man, they are so smart because they are usually right). Well, I clicked on one tonight and ended up watching a video promo and going to the site direct Happy for No Reason - I have NO CLUE why I went there, but I fell in love with a quote I found.... I wanted to share it with anyone who might be reading this.....

May you be safe

May you be happy

May you be healthy

May you live with ease

I am not sure when, but I am totally going to make this into a page for the girls. It was so well said - so much about exactly what I wish for them. I wish all those things for them every day. I loved the idea of them "living with ease". Ahhhh, I wish kids would carry that ease of living with them forever that they have now. I have no clue how to give them that gift, but I am sure going to try. And, next time we have a little extra in the budget, I am totally buying this book! :)

And, since my good friend Shannon says a post without a photo is icky.... I included a shot of the WISHES page in my new Mellie journal that I just wrote this quote on (in case I never actually get off the internet to make that page I am dreaming about....) I figured why wait - put it into something for them TODAY! Enjoy your day and may you live with ease.... (I totally LOVE that concept)
