Happy New Year: Happiness Is Something We Create

Tonight as I quickly ran to the store to pick up a Duraflame log and some matches, I heard a line from a country song that struck me like a bolt of lightening. Instantly I knew what my New Year's blog entry would be!

The line was "Happiness is something we create." This is so very true! God gives us this one life, full of opportunities. It's up to us to make it a good and meaningful one!!! Even in the middle of my own personal tsunami, I CHOOSE to create happiness, even if it only lasts a few seconds!!! Nina has blessed me with this realization and I hope and pray that she blesses everyone reading these words with the same gift!!! Happy 2011!!! May it be filled with love, blessings, gratitude, health, and may we all choose to create happiness in our own lives!!!

Rib dinner with Teddy, Silas, and Becchio Boys! Yum!!

After Dinner Siesta!


Newfound Energy!!! Thank You Smores!

Happy 2011 From Teddy & Silas!
