Embarrassment
~ Embarrassment is an emotional state experienced upon having a socially or professionally unacceptable act or condition witnessed by or revealed to others.

At the beginning of this project I was too embarrassed to put a lot of self portraits on my blog.
I must have come a long way because this week I am in every photo!

We just love this little girl so much.
She is the light in our lives and our hope for the future.

Cry/crying
~ The term crying most commonly refers to the act of shedding tears as a response to an emotional state in humans
Sometimes I feel like crying but then I remember all that I have to be happy about.

Crying is something I usually do in solitude unless of course I am watching a soppy film
And then I can sniff for England!!

Anger, angry
~ Anger is an emotional state that may range from minor irritation to intense rage.

I try not to get angry or show anger, however when I do, watch out!!!

Laughter/laughing
~ Laughter is an audible expression, or appearance of merriment or happiness, or an inward feeling of joy and pleasure.

With apologies to my family BUT I thought this one might make you laugh

Sad/Sadness
~ Sadness is an emotion characterized by feelings of disadvantage, loss, and helplessness. When sad, people often become quiet, less energetic, and withdrawn. Sadness is considered to be the opposite of happiness.

Sadness flies away on the wings of time.

We are on the home stretch now, with only a few weeks left, before our year long project is completed.
This week we are going to look at our emotions.
Happiness/Happy
~ Happiness is an emotion associated with feelings ranging from contentment and satisfaction to bliss and intense joy

A very content me.
***
Gratefulness is the key to a happy life that we hold in our hands, because if we are not grateful, then no matter how much we have we will not be happy -- because we will always want to have something else or something more.
