21 Day Happiness Challenge – Day 3

21 Day Happiness Advantage Challenge - Day 3

Yay Day Thray!!!

I know it’s “three”. But three doesn’t rhyme with yay or day. Anyway, on with the good stuff.

3 New Things I Am Grateful For

1. I am grateful for a strong immediate family. So often you hear about broken families, and there’s no way I could relate to anyone who has that. I am extremely blessed to have an amazing family where my mom & dad are still together, and I am close to both of my sisters. I couldn’t image growing up without any one of them not in my life!

Cheers to Ma (Liz), Dad (Paul Sr.), Amy, and Renee!! Love you all!

2. I am grateful for my in-laws. That’s right, I said in-laws! So often you hear people complain about going to family events at in-laws and they just dread doing it. Not this guy. I love my in-laws! Momma (Kathy) is so great with us and Eston. She’d do anything for us. Rod is a father anyone would be proud to have. Beckie is like the sister you wish you had growing up. And that doesn’t even include all the uncles, aunts, and grandparents.

Thyr Family - In-Laws

The Thyr family is great! Couldn’t have asked for a better family to marry in to!

3. I am grateful for clean running water. Let’s not take for granted a nice hot shower! There’s lots of people in this world who don’t have access to this, so I’m grateful to have clean water for drinking, showering and…. *cough*

Grateful for Clean Water

Hey, I can’t put 3 mushy things into one post. Gotta mix it up!

1 Positive Experience in the Past 24 Hours

I got to chop wood for the first time in my life. Man ALIVE that’s a lot of work! But it’s actually a lot of fun. Nikki and I haven’t laughed so much in a while.

Eston Chopping Wood

It was definitely a positive experience for all of us! Eston even got in on the action.


Yeah, I’m going with my wood chopping today! Did I do it right?

Me Chopping Wood - First Time

I think so. I’ll throw some jumping jacks and push ups in before I go to bed too. Don’t worry.


Sorry meditation experts, but I’m going with the nap thing again today. Got a nice nap on the way home from the Thyr residence this evening again. I can’t imagine meditation being any better than a good nap. We’ll see once I start doing it correctly.

Random Act of Kindness

Can I use chopping wood a third time? I should cause we did it for Rod to be nice and helpful! He even said we didn’t have to. So yeah, I’m gonna go with chopping wood a third time.

Bonus act of kindness…I could have let him go the whole night without telling him that Nikki switched around all of his dresser drawers. But I was kind enough to let him know. You know, before he wake up at 5am and searches for socks and cannot find them.

One more family photo, just because:
