Daily Happy

Once of my friends has a Facebook page on which she posts pictures of her "Daily Happys." Each day she takes a picture of one thing that made her happy that day. Sometime they're big things: the keys to a new car or Mickey Mouse at Disney World.  But more often they're smaller, everyday things: a sandcastle, a chocolate milkshake, even an empty in-box.

I think her Daily Happys are a really nice exercise--they force her to find some good in every day, even the particularly bad ones.

Well, here's MY Daily Happy for today: My beloved camellia bushes in my front yard are blooming!  The bushes, in various shades of pink, were planted shortly after I moved into my house a few years ago, and I've watched them bloom and grow every spring since them.  I just love the delicate pink flowers and the glossy green leaves.  But I was pretty sure they hadn't survived the February storms.  So when I saw them budding earlier this month, I got a bit hopeful.  And when I saw the flowers today, I was ecstatic.  Even if the blooms are less robust this year on account of snow damage, I am optimistic that they will continue to flourish for years.

Daily Happy.  Wonder what tomorrow will bring.
