August 19 – Hat

DSC00725Hi and Happy Wednesday!  Today’s Photo A Day Challenge is Hat.  This photo is one that a friend took several years ago of Ian and me sitting on the porch of the beach house.

It is one of my favorite pictures, even though you can’t see very much of our faces.  It was a special moment when we were sitting together and looking at toys and other items on the porch.

Ian has always loved to learn and I think this was one of those fun yet teachable moments.  I just can’t remember what we were looking at.  It was something interesting though, I am sure.

I love to wear hats and wish they would come back in style.  I wear them regularly and often get compliments when I do.  That is always nice to hear.  Do you enjoy wearing hats?  I would love to hear from you!

Today I am thankful for:

  • Times when Ian still sits on my lap
  • Reading a favorite book each night with Ian
  • Wearing a hat that I picked at the beach
  • My family and friends
  • Friends at Ian’s school
  • The start of a great school year
  • A trip to the library after school
  • Lunch out with my hubby

I wonder what other hats we will find to wear?  I can’t wait to look and will enjoy them.

H Is For… Hats, Hugs, and Happiness

POD_Sept.25_H.is.for.HatsHi and Happy Hump Day.  Today’s photo challenge is H Is For…  I decided to use this photo of Ian and me sitting together looking at something on the ground.  Aren’t our hats fun?

I love hats and wear them regularly.  At my previous job, I was called the hat lady, something I had mentioned in a previous blog.

I just wish they would come back in style.  Back in the 1940s, nearly everyone wore them.  Then again, maybe part of the fun is being different and unique.

H is also for Hugs, which my family loves to give.  We usually greet one another with a hug and then give then when we leave and go our separate ways.

Hugs are a nice and easy way to let someone know you love them.

H is also for Happiness.  You can’t really see our mouths in this picture, but I think you can tell we were having fun and are happy.

I usually am a happy person and so are my spouse and son.  We love to laugh, smile, and spend time together.

We are very blessed and I thank the Lord each day for these blessings.  I hope that you too are happy.

A few quotes about happiness:

  • “The Constitution only guarantees the American people the right to pursue happiness.  You have to catch it yourself.”  ~Author unknown, commonly attributed to Benjamin Franklin
  • “If you want to be happy, be.”  ~Leo Tolstoy
  • “Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.”  ~Abraham Lincoln
  • “Happiness is a form of courage.”  ~Holbrook Jackson

I wonder if my day will be filled with happiness and hugs?  I sure hope so.  And, I don’t want to forget my hat since I am wearing one today.   Hope your day is wonderful.
