Too happy to....

When's the last time you were too happy to do something?

Last night around dinner time the little guy wanted to blow Halloween bubbles. Don't know what Halloween bubbles are? They are a teeny tiny black container of bubbles at the bottom of the candy bag. Go check your kids' haul. Yep, that's the one - right there at the bottom.

Anyway, back to the story. I am sure little guy was shocked when I agreed to go blow the bubbles with him - right now. After all, it was dinner time. We were heading out front to blow bubbles in the dark when the lightbulb went off over my head. We went into the garage instead (it's lighter in there), and since one car was gone we were able to use that space to blow bubbles. It took me about 5 min and much muttering and a broken nail to get the lid popped open. When I handed the bubbles to LG, he had the biggest grin on his face and said, trying to blow,

"I can't, I'm too happy!"

Wow. I was floored. I couldn't think of the last time I was too happy to be able to do something, if ever. How about you? When's the last time you were too happy?

That's a great way to be - too happy to do anything but just be in that moment.

Sometimes I feel like I'm in too good of a mood to be at work. Does that count?

It makes me so happy that he felt that way!
Too happy - what an amazing fantastic feeling!

Let's see I was too happy, (and still am), when your brother proposed, our wedding/honeymoon and so many other days after and I am sure so many more to come!

Of course I call him my dh, you call him dear brother and the rest of you may know him as anonymous poster #1 who is cracking himself up on his sister's blog! :-)

btw Jen he still says you were the trouble maker! ;-)

Big hugs to our nephews and niece!

oops. sorry.

I've got to agree that it's impossible to blow bubbles when you're grinning! But how great to be that happy!

I've laughed so much that I couldn't knit but being too happy? Nope. Can't remember!
