Embracing a Healthy Family: What are the little ways you share happiness with those around you?

What are the little ways you share happiness with those around you?

The ever loving smile that is generated from happiness is priceless.  It's blissful to say the least.  I have three little ones running around and see it so many times a day.  I'm so thankful for the happiness they give me and can't explain the love of a smile or laughter from a child.  Happiness is such as easy gesture to share that just a smile can change a person's day.  These little things we do is like a process for change as if you ever noticed how a good sales person can make or break your day.  I know if I'm a little cranky, having a genuine nice person to wait on me really impacts my mood which makes me smile which just might make someone else smile.  It's addicting!

I cannot count the many times in a day that I smile or how many times I can generate a smile or happiness with such small things as a hug, a proclamation of love, a quick tweet, a message or just giving a compliment.  When SocialMoms and Hershey's Drops provided this great opportunity to share, I couldn't resist.  With my children, they keep me hopping mostly because my three and seven year olds have chronic medical conditions.  The simplest cold can mean life or death with my three year old and with the epilepsy my seven year old has, life is always a challenge.  We don't let that stop us though as we move forward generating more happiness to others.  My seven year old started a non-profit to give back to children with epilepsy.  We try to deliver bags around four times a year that has toys, things to do, snacks and well wishes for children in the hospital.  Last Christmas, we put little Christmas trees that plugged in and one of the nurses wrote and told us about a mom who teared up once it was plugged in.

Those tears were not of sorrow but of happiness that someone thought about her and her child.  These little tokens of love bring smiles to so many faces.  It just doesn't stop there as her family is so proud of her and that makes them glow with love.  The fun part also is picking up more people to join us in this endeavor.  Just like smiling is contagious, good deeds are as well.

There are so many things that generate happiness and anything from giving a wonderful piece of chocolate to your friend or loved one to a bag full of goodies to remind someone you are thinking of them, makes all the difference in the world.  It just takes a second in some instances but the joy brought to that unexpected person is worth all the chocolate in the world .... just as my kids who LOVE Hersheys!
