Grateful 365 # 36- My Happy Box

happybox4

I’m something of a sentimental squirrel in that I like to gather and hide things that make me smile. Over the years I’ve had dozens of chests, bags, and boxes in which I’ve stored my treasures, but recent events have made making my happy hoardings a little more portable.

Thus we have the Happy Box 2013-14 edition! A stylish something or other box (I don’t remember what it began as) coated in reflective tape and emblazoned with rainbows.
Inside we find holiday cards, small gifts, drawings from children, printed prayers, letters from loved ones, ticket stubs, pictures, and assorted other things that remind me of someone or something awesome!

It’s a silly little thing, and truth be told, I open it at home more often than I do when I take it out with me. I know most of the things I’ve put inside it by heart…I just like having them nearby. There’s an energy in positivity, optimism, and love– and everything in my happy box are just brimming with them.

It’s comforting. It’s supporting. It’s a reminder of what’s really important in life- the people and times that fill it.
So I’m grateful for my happy box, but even more gratefulererer (hee) for the people who have allowed me to keep such a thing filled year after year!
