My happy place

I have had a rough week filled with stress, tantrums, and tears (and don't even get me started on my boys!). Seriously, I need to transform myself sometimes and go to my "happy place." That could be anything from envisioning a relaxing moment to just taking deep breaths and evaluating how big a deal the current crisis is. As I tell Peanut, we need to decide if it's a big problem, a medium problem, or a little problem.

When I saw this Random Picture Challenge on Brittany's blog, I decided to check it out. The directions are to go to your November 2007 photo folder and choose the 44th picture. I have checked out my photo folders for her past challenges, but none of my shots were really blog-worthy. But this time? Jackpot. Lucky for me, I apparently downloaded several months of pictures back in November 2007. And here is the 44th photo:



Ahhhhhhhhh. There's my happy place.

That is Pumpkin and my wonderful dad at the beach in August 2007. I took several pictures of this in a row, and this is the only one with the kite flying in the background. I just adore this picture. Almost as much as I adore my father and my adorable son in the picture. Now that is a bonafide happy place.

Maybe I'll keep reading this post over and over again. I hear another tantrum brewing downstairs....

Oooh, that is an amazing shot. Makes me remember those happy places with my Dad and me, and with his grandsons. Keep going there as often as you need to!

This picture is so wonderful that it truly brought a tear to my eye. What a happy place that is. I know it is also a wonderful and happy place for your Dad too.

Sorry it was a rough week. Hope you have relaxed some this weekend. There have been lots of fits and tantrums at my house. I don't think many have been by me, though.

Woops...forgot to tell you this is a cute picture (not that you don't already know it). It reminds you how big your boys are now. Your Dad looks young.
