What is Happiness?
Happiness does not depend on having more things, getting your own way or doing what you think it should. Happiness comes from knowing that while we cant make an unhappy person happy, we are constantly and inevitably affecting other peoples wellbeing. All our encounters with others lift their spirits or lower them. Taking this power seriously is a crucial way of growing into our highest potential. We need to shift our thinking from 'What will make me happy?' to 'How can I most positively affect the world around me?'. Being a source of happiness, support, interest, comfort and wellbeing for others will transform our own lives.

Scrapping Time

I have been in the right frame of mind for scrapping lately, so here are my lastest efforts
We went to the coast in January and Rennae's best friend Penny came too. We had lovely hot weather and lots of swims. Canberra is about two and a half hours drive to the coast.
This is Rennae and her sister Carly at Carly's home in the country
Rennae and her best friends at her sweet 16 birthday party, enjoying life in the city
This is Mickey and his friends, they are always getting together for play dates, usually Lucky and Odie come to our front door and bang with their paws to come in (they only live close by) then when they have played and are ready to leave they bang on the back fly wire door to go home. Its so cute.

Really beautiful ... nice work. What a treasure that will be one of these days, after the memories have faded. It'll bring everything back in such a wonderful way!

Very nice scrapbooking pictures, they look great. I live in Oregon 60 miles from the coast so you are just on the other side of the ocean from us! We love going to the coast. It is one our favorite family outings and sometimes we take our horses and ride on the beach and even camp there too.
