Life Is Looking Up

Happiness is that moment when dusk...

turns to night...

...and everything is still around me as I sit under the moon, look up, and watch the world change.

It is the most magical moment of the day. 
The time when thoughts held deep within the soul can be whispered aloud.

In that moment, there is a simplicity of spirit...and that makes me happy.

What is making you happy today?


  1. My happy time is at night, too. When the girls are in bed and I climb into mine with my laptop and veg. :)

    I could never write something as lovely as this about it, but it's still my favorite time of the day!

  2. I'm glad that life is looking up for you, Tracie. You're a beautiful and talented woman and a great mom...You deserve every happiness.

  3. This is beautiful. It's wonderful when we stop to appreciate the finer moments in life :)

  4. Beautiful! Hearing my son laugh brings me joy. I also enjoy the time when he goes to bed and hubby and I can snuggle on the sofa.

  5. I agree. One of my favorite times of day.


  6. Very true. I find it very hard to photograph the moon. You did a great job!

  7. I love your words. The night is when things slow down here and I can sort through my day.

  8. This makes me very happy!

  9. Beautiful!

    Reading the blogs of wonderful people, getting to know them through the thoughts they express, and being more because of my time spent in their worlds -- that's what is making me happy today.

  10. Beautiful post...your words are just right. Thanks for the visit.


  11. What's making me happy today is the knowledge that I have Friday and Monday off. Yea!!!

  12. That's true.
    Wonderful photos and great post!

  13. "Simplicity of spirit" I like that.

  14. Long before the world knew Stephanie Meyer, Twilight was my favorite time of the day. In that quiet between night and day, I reflect on life and feel my family most acutely.

    Your post made me happy. Sitting outside with my dog, two kids, and hubby while FINALLY finishing a book made me very happy.

    Happy Days to you, my friend!


  15. Beautiful! I love your heart, Tracie!
