Happiness is...much more

Happiness is Azalea's blooming in January
 Happiness is… blogging
Donkey’s braying, kittens playing
People praying, I’m just saying…
Dogs that dance and Dogs that preach,
Cat politicians that have a long reach.
Ranches with whistling ducks,
Where the skunks don’t have much luck.
Happiness is…….Blogging
Chickens, pigs, dogs and cats
And once in a while a couple of rats.
Goats a jumping
With music bumping.
Frogs in ponds,
Fairies with wands.
Canines, Felines, humans galore
Touch my heart just more and more..
Happiness is……… Blogging


Grand Kids, Grand dogs
Cats in rockers 
and turtles on logs.
Happiness is.....blogging

Happiness is World Wide Watching On the Web
Making friends in so many countries it boggles my head.
Happiness is...blogging

I really enjoyed reading this listing of what happiness is!! It's terrific.

But the donkey braying made me remember a white house speech of the Democratic party...all in fun of course...

Beautiful azaleas! My only azaleas are a very pale pink. I like yours better! Might have to make a run for the nursery! Thanks for sharing!

Montanagirl said...

LOVED this post! And your beautiful pink blooms are a great start to my morning!

Betsy Adams said...

Gorgeous blooms today. I love seeing flowers this time of year when it's so drab up here.

Happiness is definitely BLOGGING, Facebook, Birds, Fires in the Fireplace, but NEVER politicians --human or furry!!!!! ha ha

Hugs,
Betsy

George said...

I like your 'Happiness is Blogging' comment, but I'm seriously envious of your azalea blossoms.

Gail said...

Fantastic!!! And so true.

DawnTreader said...

Wonderful colour... I was just thinking earlier today that I must get some colourful new plants for my windows, while waiting for spring. I just threw out a couple of wilted 'Christmas' ones.

Madi and Mom said...

What pretty azaleas are gorgeous.
I love you list too!! We all need to stop every so often...smell the flowers and be thankful for what we have and what really is good in our lives
Hugs Cecilia

Sandra it was so good to see your happiness today. We have have the weather from heck here in GA. I have Kelly and Andy home - it took them 3 hours to go about 5 miles. It's snowing and I bet there have been thousands of accidents already. Rick is stuck on the closed expressway. So I needed some happiness. sandie

Blogging certainly does add to my happiness.

Ann said...

You're a poet, I hope you know it.
I always love to blog, so long as I'm not in a fog.
Now see what you started?.....lol
Pretty azalea's. It'll be a while before I'll be seeing any of them around here

Amy Burzese said...

Thanks for flowers to warm up our temps in the teens!

Dee said...

Happiness is seeing Azalea's blooming somwhere ...anywhere...in this arctic January Winter. Happiness is the wit and humor of a blog called Mad Snapper.

LC said...

Way to go Sandra with words and with the Formosa azaleas. It is the same old-time variety that blooms early spring in our neck of the woods. I wonder, though, if my azaleas will survive low 20s temperatures today!

A Quiet Corner said...

PERFECT...absolutely PERFECT!!!...:)JP

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Love the azaleas. We didn't remove our tomato plant after summer but just cut it down to the ground. I now have two tomatoes growing!

Rose said...

Did you write this!!!! It is wonderful...the words captured me so I have to go back to look at the pics...

SquirrelQueen said...

Oh wow, those azaleas are gorgeous. It's going to be several months before I see there blooms here. Love all the things that make you happy.

Deb said...

You are just too, too much Sandra.
What a tremendous poem.
I agree..Happiness is all the things one gets from blogging.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Happiness comes in so many forms, Sandra, as you have posted. The secret is to find it in everyday things as you always do. Thanks for sharing your joys. Your blog makes me happy too.

Blackberry Lane said...

I love this, Sandra!

Susannah said...
