Come On, Get Happy

I'm coming across a lot of things this morning that are making me happy, and I thought I'd spread the love...

1. Paying it forward - Moved by the outpouring of support they got after 9/11, NY firefighters volunteer to help others around the country suffering from disasters, and a movement begins to form.

2. Quotes:

"Everyone has been made for some particular work, & the desire for that work has been put in every heart." (Rumi)

Yes, yes, yes! I couldn't agree more.

"I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being." (Hafiz)

I wish this for each of you...

3. And, on a lighter note: Design your own Chucks!

Other things making me happy this morning:

The yellow button earrings that my brother-in-law and his girlfriend gave me as an early birthday present. The paprika-colored down comforter covering me up as I write this. A week feeling surrounded by love as we visit DC and see so many dear friends and our families.

This DC trip, by the way, is the reason for the radio silence here on the blog as of late... I've just been swept up in visiting with people and near-constant activity. But life (and blogging) will return to normal when I'm back in New York next week!

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone. :)
