I just picked my first garden tomato of the season and ate it with some cottage cheese. I love to eat tomatoes on my scrambled eggs, cheese toast, tacos, sandwiches, cottage cheese, salads and pizza. I plan on basically eating tomatoes every day from now until October. And I am excited to can spaghetti sauce for my 3rd year in a row. In short, happiness is garden tomatoes.
15 years ago I never would have thought a simple tomato would be happiness. I am pretty sure I thought happiness had to do with lots of money, good looks, amazing talent, or a hot guy. But now I know, happiness is about much smaller things.
To me, at this time of my life, Happiness Is…
Knowing what’s for dinner before 5:00pm
Chad/Dad walking through the front door
Having fresh vegetables in the crisper
Leaving for vacation with the house clean, the floors vacuumed, and trash emptied
Snuggles and kisses and hugs
A hot bath
The perfect paint color
Working with my hubby in the yard
A good TV show
The last load of laundry
It is interesting to me how (besides family and friends) happiness changes over the years as our place in life changes. And happiness is different for everyone.
What Is your Happiness?
