So many things could go here...obviously family, spouse, children, grandchildren, and all the people who are in my 'family by choice.' And then there's stuff like my Mac, the brick driveway, the smell of peaches ripening in the house etc etc
But right now, what would make me happy is the same thing that had lightened my eyes and my heart before.
A phone call from my son saying....Hi Mom. I'm home.
And then I will know, once again, that he is back with his wife and children, and no longer doing his job ....out there, 'in harm's way'.
Lots more happiness links can be found on over at Angela's blog. Thanks go to One Little Acorn's Jacinta for this week's theme.
footnote: I am expecting that call to come somewhere in mid-late August. Trying not to count the days.
