My DD reads for pleasure. <img alt="joy.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/joy.gif"> This has been my absolute hope for her. She is 7 y.o. and lounges about reading chapter books. It makes me so proud!<br><br>
How about you? Why are you happy?

<p>That's awesome! I am happy my DD [who's 3] loves books with a passion, and I'm happy we can spend a chunk of our day reading them together. I am such a book freak so instilling the love is important.</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm also happy for a delicious hot coffee with some raw honey, and a sleeping babe</p>

<p>I'm happy for snuggle time with DS while DD is sleeping. I'm happy the snow has melted on the back porch enough for me to clean the rat's cage (poor dears :(). I'm happy for a marriage that seems to be going better and better these days. I'm happy that therapy is working and my anxiety is not ruling my life anymore and I can cope with it when it comes up. I'm happy that my mom and I are getting better at communicating.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My life is going really well right now.</p>

<p>I'm really happy because I just finished decorating the last tree.  All my holiday decorating is done and all the stuff is put away and I get to sit here and relax with a sleepy puppy next to me.</p>

<p>I love this thread!  Thank you for the smiles, everyone!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am happy because for a limited time I get to enjoy cranberry sauce and peppermint ice cream as much as I want!  I may be Jewish, but I love me that Christmas food!!!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Every day, I look at my children and I think about how much possibility lies ahead for them.  I so look forward to watching them become exactly who they are meant to be.  True happiness!!!</p>

<p>I am happy that my siblings are living close to my parents so I didn't have to go out when my mom fell down the stairs (low vision issue).</p>
<p>I am happy that my sister married a carpenter who is installing banisters, gates and grab bars in my parents' house so that it's safer for my mom. (Can I be glad that he's also unemployed/semi-retired so that he has time to do this? It's a blessing in disguise, really.)</p>
<p>I am happy that my mom is getting good care and that the social worker and my sisters are willing to talk about tough issues with my parents (like mom, it's time for you to learn to put in your own eye drops, and yes, Dad needs more help around the house).</p>

<p>bejeweled, the very same thing makes me happy.  My 7-year-old dd lounges around reading chapter books too!  Sometimes I even catch her up at night (like 2 am!), with her headlight on, reading her books.</p>
