I am so sorry the blog has been a little unattended.  My computer went to computer hospital to have surgery and I was not smart enough to write down all my log ins before it went away.  I couldn't access anything !!  Here is another great blog from Amy Gill.

A Hundred Hits of Happiness

“When you realise how perfect everything is you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky. “ ~Buddha

As a sequel to my 365 Grateful Project I decided to start something new – A Hundred Hits of Happiness. The aim was to take a photo a day for a 100 days of something that makes me HAPPY.

This didn’t quite work out as planned… I currently have about 249 photos!

Seems I can’t stop!!!

So I thought today I would share with you some of the things that make me HAPPY…
