Think Happy, Be Happy | A Link-Up

"Happiness is letting go of what you think your life is supposed to look like and celebrating it for everything that it is." -Mandy Hale 

Hello friends! This link party was created as a way to create some inspiration and happiness as we begin our week. It can be hard to find the happiness in our day to day, and I believe it truly does help to take a second to find the positive. Please take a second to visit all of my wonderful co-hosts who will be sharing this link party as well!
I am so excited to be joining in with some of my favorite bloggers again today, for this weekly link party.  I am a huge believer that making an effort to think positively, and then spreading that joy and happiness to others, truly helps all of us to focus on what really matters in life.

It is so easy sometimes, to get caught up in negative thoughts and feelings we have, and to focus on what is going wrong in our own lives and in the world around us, but when you take the time to think about the things you have to be thankful for, for what you've been blessed with, both you and the people around you can truly reap the benefits...

So, what am I feeling truly thankful for and happy about this Monday???

I know it might sound cliche, but today I am feeling particularly thankful for my family's health.

Last week, Max caught a nasty cough and was fighting off a fever.  As much as I love the extra snuggles that I seem to get from my kids when they are not feeling well, I hate to see them suffer.  It's always so sad.

Thankfully, at this point, Ella seems to be feeling well, and even though I have caught a little bit of this yucky cough, overall, I'm feeling pretty good... which is important, since I have a baby to give birth to at any moment!

I am also thankful for the timing of this illness.  I was really feeling anxious last week, that if the new baby came, M&E would not be able to come visit us in the hospital, because they are particularly strict on the maternity floor about people who are ill being around the babies, and because naturally, that would be a concern for me as well.

Now if our little guy decides to join us this week we'll all be able to celebrate in good health!

What are you feeling thankful for or happy about today!  Feel free to join in and link up with us!
