A list of things that make me smile

(I felt my posts were a little too heavy as of late)

*a witty turn of phrase
*grand gestures from a neighboring car
*swerving to hit a puddle (carefully, of course)
*a tree full of new, little green buds
*a fresh cup of coffee
*seeing somebody rocking out on a guitar
*a poorly sung national anthem or Christmas carol
*an elderly couple holding hands
*a toddler riding atop her father's shoulders
*skipping through a parking lot
*the tentative wave of child just getting used to the concept
*the sound of a gospel choir
*a soft breeze hitting my face
*gentle rays of sunshine warming my neck
*a realization of something I am sure others know, but I learned without being told
*when a child sits on my lap and hands me a book without a word of explanation
*visiting a park in order to jog, but deciding to swing instead

Something you may have already heard: "When I look out at the people and they look at me and they're smiling, then I know that I'm loved. That is the time when I have no worries, no problems. " ~Etta James


  1. totally love driving through puddles

  2. I like the list!

    In my hometown there used to be this little old couple that walked past our high school everyday! They were always holding hands and wearing matching jackets! They had a variety of plaid ones!

    I found you through 20sb and am following along now!
