BC Bloggers Meme: Things That Make You Happy

     Congratulations Mommy Sanna of woman scribbles for getting the most number of votes for the topic: Things That Make You Happy. I used to be unaware of what blogging is and I got this frown on my face when I read about "Meme" and wondered how to do it. I'm glad that through BC Bloggers I learn about new things. Blogging also encourages me to write more. In a writing workshop I attended which I wrote about in my other blog My Romance Novels a writer said that -- to be a serious writer, one must make writing a habit. I have to devote myself to "a writing time" everyday to make the words flow in my mind. If you want to experience the joy of blogging and meeting new people, click this link: mommy diary.

Here are the: Things That Make Me Happy:
#1. My family
with my hubby
My Kids, Allen and Ian
also my parents, my only brother Kuya Gboy and his wife Ate Thelma (they said: "No pictures please...")
    
     Spending time with the family calms me and makes my heart feel so healthy. Hearing my kids' laughter and my hubby's "bolero" power lines make me feel younger. My mother's cooking is the best and my father is the kindest person I know. My Kuya's combined intelligence and down to earth attitude makes me proud to be his sister and of course his success is made possible from the inspiration he saw in Ate. Thank you to my family for making me feel happy and loved.

#2. Reading the Parent Communication Notebook and meeting with my kids' teachers. Joining my kids in their Educational tour and school activities is a great bonding experience.

#3. My Friends, Co-Specialist and former office mates I meet from time to time. I am not blessed with enough time and resources to post all their pictures here. I'd mention their names, instead:
Trichelle (her other nickname: Pat) please visit her very informative blog: baonkobento
Janette, Florence, Joseph, Randy and Abby
Che, Ma'am Edith, Ate Myra, Meo, Dennis and Gil
Fam, Arvie, Joy, Res, Faith, She, Ariane and Juvy

     I seldom mention this but bumping into former classmates in elementary, high school and college makes me happy too!

#4. Having a few minutes to stay in a place surrounded by people (often times a food court or fast food!) and scribble something on my notebook that I could use in my novel.

#5. Now, here are the small things that I guess this world has to make a person like me happy:
*Ice cream -- I am a frequent customer of Dairy Queen but I just love ice cream even if it's a Selecta Cornetto or a Soft Serve ice cream in a convenient store, eating ice cream puts a smile on my face
*Cakes --I hope I could have another Conti's Cake-after-Cake Dinner... Birthdays are not complete without a cake! In my case, even if it isn't any one's birthday I buy cakes when I want to. :)
*Cheesecakes at Cheesecakes, etc., Mc Cafe and Dome Cafe
* Milk Tea-- make that Wintermelon Milk Tea
*Iced Coffee and Frap
*Yummy cheeseburgers, onion rings and and ice cold rootbeer 
*Cold Triple Chocolate Champorado
*Halo-halo-- at Razon's and Kabigting's
*Pizza, pasta and super cold beer
 
     Whew! That was quite a list...of food! Aside from food, I also feel happy when I finish reading a romance novel. I like it when I hear cheesy lines and love quotes. Well, there's so much to be happy about. Thank you to our Almighty Father for all of our gifts. Happiness is a choice!

I love #4. I used to that when I was single. Pag medyo malaki na si baby, i might be able to do it again.

If I had joined the MEME, same as on your list, I'd list down my family as number 1 too. Nothing beats the joy around our loved ones. :-)

IT's better to count happy moments than counting the not so happy ones, that would be so stressful.

Dominique's Desk said...

My family and food too are among the things which make me happy.

Rochelle O. said...

I love milk tea too! Such simple joys means great to me :) You got a nice list here! Happy Blogging.

kath said...

your no. 5 is love!! :D

Allan said...

sometimes there are small things that are often neglected and comsidered simple but it really makes a person happy.

Vera said...

Family time is precious time indeed :)

Milk tea is also one of the things that make me happy and I share the love for milk tea with my boyfriend :)

Oliver Ramos said...

The #5 is really my favorite part of your list because i can relate unto it. Enjoying the halo-halo or even ice cream from dairy queen or just an ordinary ice cream from Mamang Sorbetero will do. And also the joy of having your family with you that is also an amazing part of this post.

I also heart the last part of your post wherein you thank our Lord for your happiness thanks for sharing this

Mae Codizal said...

Ganun talaga when there's something you want to be good at e no? Just do it over and over and over. No successful person ever got to where they are without "practicing". Good luck to your writing hobby! I have a hobby that I want to master too ;-)

Taylor Gilmore said...

Love your list. Eating ice cream always puts a smile on my face too!

miekee_18 said...

Nice set of list:) If I will tally what will be the number 1 in the things that makes us happy for us, bloggers who joined this "MEME" The number 1 will be the family:)of course always!

Lady Spring said...

I wish I could have the same state of mind as you have with #4. I don't know, I find it stressful to be around a public space with so many people while I'm alone. It's like they're pressing in on me with their conversations etc., :/

I generally gravitate towards quiet spaces.

Just having the people that matter most in our life - family and friends - can surely bring in the happiness in our lives. Have a blessed day.
