A few of my favorite things...

Wednesday, August 17, 2011
I just read an article about some of the best feelings in the world or things that just make you happy. It inspired me to make a list of some of mine (in no particular order):
* My son has a thing that he does when he's really tired - He climbs up on my lap, puts his face up against mine and lays on me. He makes this noise when he does it that lets you know he's completely content. It makes me feel like the most special person in the world!
* Freshly washed sheets. It's lovely to climb into bed with sheets fresh out of the laundry. Combined with my down pillows and my husband to curl up with - it makes me never want to get out of bed!
* When the cat chooses my lap to sleep on apposed to the couch or a bed.
* Finding the perfect gift.
* The sound of my son's laughter.
* When my husband walks over and hugs me for no reason at all.
* That just after sex, completely satisfied and falling asleep happy feeling.
* Sunbathing on vacation - the feeling of my toes in the sand, the sound of the sea near by, the hot sun beating down on me, a drink next to me, and not having a care in the world.
* The feeling I when I was pregnant and felt the baby move.
* Doing something for someone you know touches them or makes their day.
* Kissing. I love kissing.
* The feeling of accomplishment I get when I achieve a goal I've set for myself.
* Uncontrollable laughter - the kind of laughter that makes me snort
* Falling asleep in my the arms of someone who loves you.
* The feeling I get when people laugh at my jokes. It's really great to make people laugh or smile.
* Cooking a great meal.
* Getting caught in a rain storm on a day that's so hot, you just wish it would rain (not in England though - the rain here is always so damned cold)!
* Watching someone open a gift I bought for them & seeing their face light up when they see what it is.
* Standing in the falling snow late at night (when the air doesn't feel too cold). It's a beautiful peaceful feeling standing there in the silence of the snow falling around you.
* How I feel when I hang out with my best friend - knowing that I can just be me and the comfort that gives.
* The feeling of pride I get when I see my son accomplish something new & how proud he is to have done it.
* Having a connection with someone and knowing it the minute you meet them.
* The feeling I get when my son or husband say they love me out of the blue for no particular reason.
* Being surrounded by friends.
* My son's spontaneous singing or dancing.
* Finding out you made a difference in someone's life.

I could probably go on and on, but I'll stop there. Feel free to share yours...
