According to Webster Dictionary: “Happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being defined by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy. A variety of biological, psychological, religious and philosophical approaches have striven to define happiness and identify its sources.”
Lately, my time for happiness has been limited to a few things… Between work and the general craziness of life’s everyday dilemmas and decisions I’m surprised I haven’t, let alone more parents on a daily basis haven’t, had a mental break down. Or at least walked into on coming traffic wearing breathing into a paper bag.
Craziness and Happiness are like the ying and yang of life, of relationships and of parenting. I feel like you’re either one or the other… Sometimes you slide one way only to slide right back from where you came from.
Then all of a sudden, through the fogginess of a crazy, long day you appear! You seem to be my reason for living. I’m sure lots of people tell you that!!
I always knew that you would be part of my life… I didn’t know who you were or who you might be, but I never would guess that someone so tiny could fill up my heart the way you do. Since the first time I held you in my arms you simply captivated me, the same you still do all this time later.
It’s true that every great gift comes with its difficulties; there have been plenty. Having someone new to figure out in your life can make anyone go nuts.
It’s just… no matter my frame of mind at that particular time… From when you laugh, to when you’re upset and look at me that certain way you do… those are the things that I hang on to. Those are the ways you show me you love me…
“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also” is how the saying goes. You are the most amazing person I have ever laid eyes on, I’m sorry if I may be preoccupied with all the craziness lately… But I wanted to write this to you for one reason… To thank you for being my little person.
