Needing some pink -- 10 reasons to be happy

I drove to the art store today looking for a bright pink to add
touches of colour to one of my paintings, and they were almost
out of the colour -- very popular now.  Don't tell my friend who
hates pink Shh. 

The news in the world is grim. We need to work at happiness.

Because I not only talk to a friend at the art store, plus they had a jar of
the pink paint, I thought about 10 reasons to be happy.

10 Reasons to be happy

1. My art store had a jar of the pink I needed.

2. I had a beautiful walk through our winter landscape (snow
has been rare this winter so far) with a dear friend.

3. I got to talk to a former wonderful boss, who is planning 
some fabulous possible work for the spring with our wonderful team.

4. I had a great conversation with a friend from Instagram, who
is beyond creative.

5. I have more than one super book to read, and (hint) one is Awesome.

6.  Our dinner was delicious.

7. I worked on a couple of paintings today, and had fun. They aren't
ready for public view.

8. I have a sweet husband who loves me.

9. I'm planning my art shows for this year, and feel so excited (yes I'll
wear a mask.

10. It's time to go and watch a delightful TV show with our animal
family (two cats and a dog.)

Crazy happy. See it works!

Have a loving your life day.
