Hope and Happiness

I've been trying to decide what to write about ALL day today! Finally I was reading through some quotes and found this one (I think it's part of a toast from a wedding or something, I couldn't find who specifically said it):

"May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, and enough hope to make you happy."

With this I started to think about what brings happiness into my life... so here are three things that bring me happiness and help me keep hoping for something better:

1.  My husband, the greatest man ever who works harder than anyone could ever imagine was possible. He can always make me laugh, even when I feel the deepest of sorrow. I find great joy in thinking of spending all of eternity with such a wonderful man!

2.  My boys (at least when they aren't driving me crazy) I think I needed to write about happiness because my toddler was driving me crazy earlier! I have so much hope for the future of my boys and our family. I hope the above quote is true for us that we will have just enough trials to make us strong!

3.  My religion, this is where I find the majority of my hope. I like the idea of there being more to life than just the years we are here on earth.

What are three things that bring you happiness... or keep you hoping for something better?
