TGI Saturdays # 54 – The Little Nuggets of Happiness!


Saturday, February  6th, 2016

Hi my friends,

I hope all is well today. Thanks for coming by for our 54th TGI Saturdays blog hop. What an achievement to be proud of. I love it when you come for a visit. Though I’d love it if you’d talk to me more (comment, why don’t ya). Thanks so much for taking the time to share your great posts with us.

The day I’m writing this post is actually January 23rd and the snow is falling outside. I’m writing this post so early because this is the first of 3 1/2 months of TGI Saturdays pre-scheduled posts. Why am I pre-scheduling so many post in advance. Well, the reason is because I’m soon going to have another baby, a new addition to our family of six. Soon we’ll have our own 7th Heaven -lol (did you watch that show?).

I’m calling these pre-scheduled post “Saturday Inspirations,” the purpose of these posts are to inspire, encourage and uplift. So I hope you enjoy, please feel free to comment during this time of pre-scheduled posts. I’ll be checking my comments as often as I can and it will be a way for us to still connect.

Nuggets of Happiness

I perceived that there is nothing better for them than to be joyful and to do good as long as they live; also that everyone should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil—this is God’s gift to man.

Ecclesiastes 3:12-13 (ESV)

Sometimes we have those “Ah” moments, those times in life when you feel a genuine surge of joy and happiness in your spirit.  For a small moment worries, concerns, challenges, obstacles;  their images all fade into a blurred background and all you see is beauty, color, radiance. You are reminded of why we live, why we fight, why we never give-up. We grab those moments and we hold on to them in our memories and keep them there to help keep the light shinning bright inside of us when we are having a rough season. Those little nuggets of happiness triggered by a sincere smile, the sound of laughter, heaven on your taste buds, music to your ears, an amazing sight, an awesome adventure, a favorite thing. Get my drift. It could be something big or something so small, but the joy it brings is not small at all. I wish you many of those little nuggets in your lifetime. I hope you enjoy my poem.

Little Nuggets of Happiness

At this moment I feel complete

At this moment I can hear my heart beat

At this moment I feel blessed

A little nugget of true happiness


Dear Lord, help me preserve

this feeling in my heart wherever I go

So when times are rough and times are tough

And I’m feeling a bit low


I can hold on to my nugget of happiness

And ignite my spiritual glow

Help me Lord to always remember to let this happiness show

And through my entire being let its essence flow

Written by L.J.G.B (me)


Peace, Love and Blessings to you.

    Latisha, best wishes as you enter this last phase of your pregnancy. The *home stretch* can be challenging, huh?! Prayers for your entire family as you anticipate and get ready for 7th Heaven (yup, I remember that show, though I didn’t watch it!)

    I really enjoyed your poem. Sometimes I find myself in a funk, kinda discouraged, and it’s hard to feel much joy during those times. But, so true, about taking with us a nugget of happiness! This winter it’s been very cold in our mountains, and having a fire in the fireplace is a necessity. I am surprised how many mornings there are still some embers glowing if you stir up the ashes. I thought about that when I read your poem. Yes, we need nuggets of happiness, a few glowing embers, to help us in the rough times.

      Hi Sharon,
      Thanks so much for your comment and sharing your thoughts. We had lots of snow yesterday and the power went off during the night and is still off. So our heater is not working. Thank God for our fireplace, comforters and sweaters to keep us warm. I do hope the power comes on soon. Blessings to you this winter season.

    Hey Latisha,
    I love the poem and the theme! I agree, holding tight to the moments of happiness, is so important. This week, my girls and I found joy at their schools Father, Daughter Dance. Rocking out with my kiddos, seeing their faces light up, and watching them have fun with their friends, is always makes me happy. Thank you for another great opportunity to share and connect in the link-up Wishing you and your family a blessed week!

    Latisha, congratulations! Wow, seven! I couldn’t handle more than two! My hat’s off to you…and yes, I watched the ORIGINAL shows with my kids. We all loved that show. And in answer to your question—what brings me joy? I look for joy every day, so that it is kind of like God’s mercies–new every morning. I never want my joy to become stale because joy afresh is the best kind of joy! Blessings to you, your family and your little nugget.
