#100HappyDays - Week 5


The Challenge

is to take a picture of something that makes you happy each day for 100 days and post it on facebook or twitter or google plus, etc.

I have chosen to put it on Facebook each day but also each Saturday I will do an update for the week on my blog.

This week again had a variety of things that I picked as my happy moments of the day, some were events and involved going somewhere others involved memories and a couple involved food.

On quite a few of the days this week it was hard to choose what to pick as there were different things during the day that qualified and I sort of thought it wasn't fair that I had to choose between them.  Maybe I should have just gone ahead and posted more some days.

The main common thread this week I think was that most of them involved other people, not that I need others to be happy but it is lovely when others are involved in our happy times and hopefully those become their happy times as well.  Helping to make someone else happy is definitely something worth being involved in.


I was happy to be able to make a gift for a friend for church


Fred took me to Downpatrick to see the St. Patrick's Day Parade there.  
This was the first ST. Patrick's Day Parade we had ever been to.  
It was great to see a parade float praising God.


I spoke at the assembly in a Primary School today and took these three items in with me as visual aids.  They led to the country our daughter is living in (Korea) and then I spoke about God being everywhere.


Happy memories of the many butterflies which gathered around the Buddlea Bush at our home in Tervuren, Belgium.


One of the graphics I had created was featured in an online magazine (see the bottom of the magazine page.


So happy that there was one Mr Frostie ice pop left in the box because I don't like the Mrs Frosties


Celebrating Fred's birthday with Daniel & Suzie, our son and daughter-in-law.

Who was involved in helping to make you happy this week?

Or more importantly who were you helping to be happy this week?


  1. What a fun challenge to take pictures of the things that bring a smile to your face. I like the three items you took as visuals aids; I love anything has to do with the Asian culture. They are a beautiful nation; so full of honor and determination. Hopping over from the Thought Provoking Thursday link-up party :)

    1. This three items were all due to having been over to visit our daughter teaching in South Korea

  2. What fun! Beautiful butterflies on your plants!

  3. Lovely photos and what a beautiful idea to catalogue them like this. Your cake is so sweet and the butterflies...gorgeous!

  4. Love this challenge! SO fun! Thanks for sharing on Whatever Wednesday! See you again next week!

  5. Lots of lovely moments, Happy Birthday Fred.
