|Did I mention she's smitten?|
Rachel's new baby Roane (okay, she's really like 7 months old now, but, still, that's pretty new, right?) was there, too, and Flannery was just smitten. She got to "hold" Roane a few times, and was so attentive and gentle with her. It was sweet to see a glimpse of how Flanna would be with a little one around. She wants more than anything to have a little brother or sister.
Agh, the things that pull at my heart.
Annnyway. The thing is, that walk, that un-rushed time strolling to and from the park--brought me exponential amounts of happiness. Maybe it's that it combined so many things that bring me happiness: my family, experiencing nature, chatting with those I love, visiting with dear friends. But really, it sort of surprised me that such a simple thing brought me such a happiness boost.
So, if you wanna get happy, just take a walk.
Even better, take a walk with folks you love.
Even better, take a walk with folks you love to go visit other folks you love. Seriously, if you do that, you just might enter the death spiral of gladness.
