Today's Happy Cone goes to my fur family. I had a rough day at work, especially at the end of the day. When I got home, I was greeted by three very hungry critters. I always enjoy meal times with them because enthusiastic eaters tend to be healthy felines.
After dinner (both mine and theirs), I curled up to watch the game. Each of the cats has taken a turn beside me. First Connie, whose style is to butt her head against my hand and then crawl into my lap for a cuddle. Then big old Joe rubbed up against the MacBook on my lap, just to make sure I was aware that he was aboard the futon, before curling up against the pillow. And now I'm being treated to the gentle vibration of Reynaldo's purr as he lays here patiently, knowing that every now and again I'll interrupt my typing to stroke his back.
I feel their love and I am happy.
What's that you say? What's the August Happiness Challenge?
Each day in August you are to post about something that makes *you* happy. Pretty simple. And, it doesn't even have to be every day if you don't want it to be. It's a great way to remind ourselves that there are positive things going on in our lives, our communities, and the world.
If you want to play along, just come back here (meaning to this blog, not this individual post) each day in August, looking for the happy chocolate cone. Every day I will try to have a post with the headline: August Happiness Challenge: Day [X]. Leave a comment and then post your own daily happiness, with August Happiness Challenge in the title to make it easy to find.
