Happiness comes in many different shapes and forms.
There are many things that make me happy including the simple pleasures in life like a beautifully set Shabbat table, time well spent with family and friends creating everlasting memories and sitting in the garden on a breezy day under a beam of warm sun , not to mention eating a bowl of mint chocolate chip ice cream.
One of the happiest days of my life was the day I became a mother.
I remember so well the moment 21 years ago that Hashem blessed us with a beautiful bundle of joy. As a first time mother I made sure my brand new joyful wonder was being well taken care of. Clean, bathed and fed.
I was excited to make sure his room was properly outfitted with all the necessities. A brand new crib with soft sheets and a matching comforter in pastel colors. A padded change table stocked with diapers, wipes, creams and a change of clothes organized neatly in baskets. His closet was organized with hanging space for his adorable outfits. We added a tall dresser for his cute pajamas, underwear and socks. A rocking chair helped make nursing a comfortable, relaxing and bonding experience.
The walls were painted in a pastel green, which I matched to one of the colors of the comforter. We adorned the room with framed pictures and keepsakes.
A plush area rug contributing warmth and comfort to the room and providing a cushioned area for playtime. Window coverings which complement the room décor adds softness and texture.
Baruch Hashem our happiness was renewed a few times over and we were blessed to realize a lot of use from our baby furniture.
