smile

Jamie of Chasenkids stopped and took a look at the small things in life that brings a smile to her face. So I thought that I would look at my life and see what brings a smile to my face.

Things that make me smile

  • Brook sleeping on the couch
  • Thinking of Pat
  • that first drink from a cup of warm, creamy cappuccino
  • a beautiful sunset
  • a beautiful sunrise
  • horses running across the field
  • the smell of coffee brewing(even though I drink tea)
  • the little notes that say I love you Mamaw
  • holding hands with Pat
  • hearing Connie's voice when I answer the phone
  • "Hello skinny!" from Pat
  • when small kittens learn to rub on your ankles
  • seeing birth
  • remembering my parents
  • hearing Amazing Grace
  • seeing Sebastian look at Pat
  • watching Brook and Pat together
  • a hug from Brook
  • Buddy curling up with me
  • The birds flying around the room
  • curling up in Pat's arm
The more I think the more I can find. When people talk about the finer things in life they are talking about things that you can buy. As I look back over my list I see that there was nothing there that cost money. The finer things in life are not what you buy or pay somebody for. They are things that are dear to your heart, things that make you smile. Each and everything on my list made me smile once again just thinking of them and writing them down. What makes you smile?

    This was excellent!  Thanks for sharing the list with us, but thanks for sharing the thought even more.  If we all stop and count our blessings, we'd realize we are so better off than we might thave thought.  There really are things in life that create happiness that money can't buy.  I'm so glad you reminded us.
