Saturday Happy: Good friends

I got some great friends, guys. I do. I am so blessed its just crazy! I was feeling bad today. Like REAL bad. Things aren't going real great for me today, and I just felt super tired on top of it. I went to bed, and I woke up 4 hours later to the sound of a ripping box. Tyler was sitting next to me on the bed and he shoves an open box under my nose. I cant see real well when I wake up but I could definitely see the bright colors inside the box. I sit up and start going thru it and I find the two awesome bracelets Maylee helped me model at the top, and the awesome earrings too!

There was also the awesomest rainbow knitted scarf I have ever laid eyes on. How Elicia knew I had been dying for a rainbow scarf for at least 8 months now I have no idea...she is psychic I am sure of it! I want to give a huge thanks to you Elicia, you made me feel SOOO much better today. I feel loved!

The cool headband I am wearing was also a gift not too long ago from my secret twin Kelli of Kellibeans fame. She sent Maylee the cutest little bean with wings...I need to get a picture of him, he is adorable. Kelli makes some adorable stuffies check her out!

I am always getting a lot of love from my good friends online. I don't have pictures of everything but the shops I am about to list give you a good idea of the quality of love I have got recently.

Papillion Jewelry Sent me these awesome crocheted earrings for my birthday. She was SO sweet to do that! They are VERY comfortable to wear, and I just sit and look at them wondering how tiny her hands must be to crochet those itty bitty stitches on them! THANK YOU! I enjoyed the cool packaging too! They were wrapped in a map of Vietnam. That made me feel like I was getting such a treasure from an exotic country. I very much enjoyed the effect. You are so kind to send something so nice to a stranger. I wish I could hug you!

CreativeEyeStudio Kim is my best buddy. She helps me run the Street Team, and she busts her butt for us every day. She is as passionate about global domination as I am, and I love her for it. She recently sent me these awesome GLOW IN THE DARK hippie bus earrings. These have real sterling silver wires guys, this is NICE stuff! Thanks so much Kim! BIG HUGZ and many blessings to you!

ChristinasHandmades Christina is a great hippie mama friend.She makes some really awesome natural gemstone jewelry .I have known her for ages online and recently I was so blessed to meet her in person. She brought me bunches of cool gifts, one of which was the AWESOME handmade visor I am wearing in this picture. I LOVE THIS THING! I wear it a LOT and I cant go nowhere in it without someone complimenting me. Thanks Christina! You rock!

There are so many more people I need to thank from over the years of sending me goodies. I wish I could hug each and every one of you for being so kind to me. I always try to send out the positive energy back into the universe by doing plenty of my own RAOK's I do enjoy keeping the love going around and around. I love seeing it come to be and I love sending it back out. Love is a beautiful thing, and I love all my great friends online you guys are another happy in my life.

Happy week Friday BIG happy

I didnt plan on being able to post again today but it seems life is slowing down and getting calm...this makes me VERY happy! For today my happy is this:

My Tyler. No he isnt drinking a beer but it sure looks like it huh? They put root beer in interesting bottles LOL My Tyler started himself up yet ANOTHER business last night cutting grass...he has been talking about it for a while and last night he printed out his flyers he made and he hit the streets with his lawn mower going door to door.

Tyler was gone about an hour or two and he come home with a 20 dollar bill in his pocket. I am proud! He has been wanting a cell phone, and I kept telling him no cause its an expense we dont need, and a cell phone to us is pretty useless anyways. But he made the money to pay for every penny of a cheapo pre paid cell phone so he went over to Staples and picked one up. I cant tell him no on that one, its his money!

I knew when he left the house with the lawn mower he would come home loaded. And to make it better he has yards lined up for the weekend so he will be making even more money! I am gonna make him save it for a 4 wheeler cause thats what he REALLY wants bad.

Tyler makes me happy. He can be the best son a mom ever wanted. He helped me when I was pregnant with Maylee, he pushed my wheelchair when we went shopping (he liked trying to scare me so I would go into labor and have her) He even helped when she was born. He held her and helped out while Noor was helping me. Tyler would ALWAYS bag the groceries when we went to the grocery store, and he would put them in the car and carry them in the house. I never had to touch anything at the grocery store. He did it ALL and I never had to ask him to do it. He just knew I needed help and he did it.

This is my other happy for today:

My Justin. This picture is so cool. He likes it too. Justin is now 16! His birthday is 2 days before mine. he was due on my birthday but the doctor induced labor so here he is 16 years later. Justin is quite the flirt and has been peeking over my shoulder while I am on facebook at my friends. All my friends are women, so of course Justin is all over it. He seems to love my friend Elicia a lot. He says she is hot, and he wants to meet her husband...probably to beat him down so he can take his woman. Justin is cute.

Justin has cerebral palsy, he was diagnosed when he was about 3 or 4. He functions very well and I have been told that he can most likely live a pretty normal life and have kids and stuff...I almost fell out of my chair thinking about my Justin having kids...maybe when he is 50 or something...not anytime soon!

Some of my greatest life lessons are from Justin. He has such a kind loving heart and is so giving and so free with the hugz when we go out places. Everyone loves him cause he is so good and so kind. Its easy to see the love in his heart. He has been a huge blessing to me. I sometimes feel bad because he has a disability and feel like he got "cheated" out of so much, but then again I see where his life path is a special one. He has been a shining example of pure innocent love for me to go by all these years, and he has brought so much into my life and the lives of everyone he meets, I feel like his soul is very strong to pick a life path such as this one to follow. I am proud he is my son.

My children are my biggest happy. ALL of them, not just that sweet baby. There are such great and wonderful things about all my babies, and each one of them is different in their own way, and I love each of them for who they are and the adults they will become.

Tyler looks like he will be my crafty business man, Maylee my little helper baby, my sweet baby who looks like she may be crafty too, and my Justin, who teaches me the lessons of the soul with his heart of gold. I am a blessed mama. And I am happy!

Happy Week - What makes me happy

Curious Girl wanted everyone to participate in Happy week. Cause she is obviously not turning 35 this to be a good sport I dug down deep in my soul to think of what makes me reeeallly happy, and I realized I didnt have to dig too deep to find this:

She makes me happy. Like super duper almost cry all the time kinda happy. She has such a sweet way about her. I love the way she says,"Kisses" and licks my face to wake me up in the mornings. I love her cute little baby snores at night when she sleeps, and the way she ninja kicks me in the throat when she is turning over....I just love her!

Another thing I really like is this:
Kool Aid makes me happy. Along with this:

Yoo hoo...Mmmm...wish I had that big container right now full of ice cold YOO HOOOOO!

Its the little things in life. A surprise in the mail from a friend, Candy tucked in my fragrance oil order from my supplier, realizing I dont have to look for my scissors for 15 minutes, they are right here...little things make me very happy, sometimes TOO happy.

I have been known to squeal with delight upon finding new flavors of Kool Aid or jell-o pudding...the day I found Orange Cream Jell-O pudding...Tyler went to another aisle, he couldnt take it. His face was red and he asked me why I am his mom...I cant answer that son, just go with it, be happy too! It was ORANGE CREAM PUDDING!!! OMG! Why isnt everyone dancing in the aisles, seriously!

So thats my happy. Its easy to make me happy. I learned a long time ago that we wake up every morning with a choice before us we can see the positive things in the events of the day or we can dwell on negative. I choose positive most days....MOST days LOL
