Prose for Thought – Happiness

So today Phil and I have handed the baton for Shoulder to Shoulder to Day over to Suzanne at 3 Children and It.  However, I intend to continue linking up happy posts for Emma and try my best to support every single host. Prose for Thought today is no exception.

Yesterday afternoon I was sitting in Costa Coffee working on my laptop when I found out that I am in the final of the BiBs for the Video Category. It got me thinking how much my life has turned around over the last couple of years and how truly happy I really am. Properly. Really properly for the first time in my life. We also found out our house move is a definite yesterday too. Everything seems to be coming together! It deserved a poem and the result is below.  Before you delve in, I just wanted to say thank you once again to the faithful band of Prose for Thought linkers – you are all amazingly talented people and I feel honoured to be in your company.



A great big grin from ear to ear

I really am so full of cheer

I’m happy that my life’s is great

That I’ve got no one I need to hate

People there cause I want them to be

I’m surrounded by ones that matter to me

They bring me joy and treat me well

My heart with great pride does swell

I love my daughter, love my man

Love my family as best I can

You all mean the world to me

On and on through eternity

    Lovely happy poem! I’m afraid my poem isn’t too happy, more observational! But I am working on a happy post for Emma. Thank you for hosting such a lovely link xx
