Choose Happiness

Success is not the key to happiness
Happiness is the key to success
If you love what you are doing,
you will be successful
Herman Cain

  39. Hi Saskia!
    I love your quote this week! It fits with everything we do... from being a good mother, sister, daughter, other work... whatever we do!

    I hope you are having a wonderful week! Work has been so busy for me! I have enjoyed my students very much this week, but I am busy with lots of other things. I've been responsible for planning a baby shower for the other reading teacher at work... and it's tomorrow!
    This Sunday I am hosting a family party for Jason. He is moving to Texas for a new job. Oh we will miss him soooo much. He is leaving in a few weeks... and every day will be special...
    This past Sunday night, we watched family movies from when the children were little... it made time seem very short...
    Enjoy your children, Saskia! Every day is special whatever their age!

  40. Being happy is the most important element in my life. If I am happy then all else falls into place. Happy to you...

  41. Hello and thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your kind message. Your blog is beautiful! I have now signed up to follow you. It will be wonderful to learn more about the Netherlands through your blog. My Grandfather migrated from Eindhoven to Australia in the early 1950's. Sadly I know very little about the culture.
    Kind Regards,
    Leah Grace de Vries (I love my Dutch surname!)

  42. Gegroet mijn lieve vriend! Dank u voor uw vriendelijke woorden over mijn Nederlands!Whew......that is a mouthful! ARE YOU HAVING A FUN DAY? I have had such a lovely week my sweet. Reading great stories, watching great movies, I drew yesterday and plan on more today. Ahhh, I am happy!!! Let's have another mint.......BISOUS! Anita

  43. That quote is sooo true, Saskia!!! Have a lovely day!

  51. Saskia, thank you for sharing this Herman Cain with us. True poem.

  52. Hi sweet friend...thank you for visiting me today..your notes always brighten my day. Can you believe it is Friday already??? dear me where does the time go? really!
    I am still nursing my silly back...just hope it is better my next week.

    What do you have on your Friday agenda my friend...would love to be with you enjoying a cup of tea and a sweet. Maybe one day.

    Hugs and love. xoxoxoxoxo

  53. I love the idea of CHOOSING happiness. :) :) :)
    Indeed, it is not always thrust upon us, we must seek it from the inside out. :)
    Have a wonderful weekend. BLESSINGS!!

  54. good, is beautiful,

  55. GOEDE MORGEN SWEET SASKIA! Thank you for coming to cheer me up! Oh, I am feeling a bit lonely! I am here, alone, with no one to "play" with! My entire time on break has been WONDERFUL and quiet and relaxing, but Blogland has been so quiet. I am hoping that summer time will mean that more bloggers will be around. I so enjoy the company of blogging friends. But it is back to school on Monday and I think I feel refreshed! I spent time drawing, although not much. I did some crafts in my workshop, and that has been fun, but the most fun has been reading and writing poetry. I will probably never share it, for it is just an exercise in a medium unknown to me, but worth the effort to practice. How are you dear one?

    IT IS FRIDAY and now that I am on the other end of the stick, I don't WANT the weekend to come yet! I don't know if I am ready to go back to the FAST PACE of school!


  56. Love your white daffodil sitting on the yellow polka dot cupcake liner. Congratulations to the winners. Your weekend will be so wonderful with your four generations all together. Make lots of Happy Memories my dear...

  57. You help my bluebird of happiness to sing loud and clear sweet Sass.
