coincidence? I was just about to say the same about you Brian.
I have two bunches of day lillies in a vase on my kitchen table. They are absolutely stunning and bring a smile to my face everytime I walk past them.
friends. especially when they know that i need a lift in spirit. they just know how to do it.
When I pick up the baby at day care and he sees me and instantly starts laughing and running to me, arms open wide...
listening to a great song
an early morning walk with my dog
the beach at any time of the day/night
spending time with my sons and daughter in law
sitting out by the pool and seeing a butterfly or lizard... once I looked up in the tree and saw a raccoon trying to stay cool. (pool area is caged)
light reflections on the water
a spritz of my favorite perfume
and so much more - many of the wonderful hubbers/hubs.
The smell of fresh coffee
Shower with good pressure!
A big fat greasy burger when Ive been eating healthy for 3 whole weeks...yummmm
Money ,oh little things that make you smile
Ok little bundles of money
being the first on the beach early in the morning with the sun just coming up.
Standing at the top of a mountain before breakfast, thinking my work for the day is done.
Having the top down on my convertable when its a lovely day.
8 days left until summer vacation! (Ok, that's kind of a big thing)
Yay! Yes it is HUGE ! Woo Hoo--school's almost out for you.
Boo Hoo--School is already out for J and he is home now ALL SUMMER ! ! But, now he tells me he wants to go to school all week while the other kids review just to hang out!!!! WEIRD!
Jumping into bed at night when I am really, really tired and getting cozy under the covers! Sweet Sleep
I hadn't seen HomeGirl's post before I decided to post here (honest); but something that first made me out-and-out laugh when I first heard it, and now is kind of making me smile, is a commercial I heard for the first time on TV about some gadget that takes pictures. Their "line" has something to do with adding yet more cats to the Internet. (That whole thing about cat pictures on the Internet just makes me smile/laugh - and I don't even have a cat these days. )
Coming home to dinner already made when you've had a long day at work.
Hugs and kisses from my children at the end of a long day....
Our dogs jumping in the air and wagging their tails ferociously because they're happy I'm home
My 10 month old grandson, Quinn, just cut his 5th tooth-asymmetrically cute!
watching a toddler discover something new and seeing the delight on his or her face
Did any of that food wind up going inside this cute toddler?
Very very little of it Its worth cleaning the mess for the picture though That's Lilith--my youngest, btw, I am saying this only to brag. My genes somehow made something that beautiful.
She sure is a cutie!
As a grandfather I can sit back and watch the inventive ways they put food in anything including stuffing it in their pockets and just enjoy it!
The older twin found a new way to show a plate empty of a vegetable she didn't like.
She stuffed them down her trousers stood up and said very politely. "Granpa may I be excused from the table?"
then went to the bathroom and emptied the vegies in the bin while pretending to need the toilet.
I just finished making breakfast for three little ones, so I am still smiling inwardly from the funny things they said.
Little people make me smile.
No doubt - little kids are among the biggest causes of smiles. Since they've been covered here, though; another smile-producer for me (and this one is really dumb, I know), is that "classic" - dogs sticking their heads out of car windows. I don't know why something as mundane (and common) still makes me smile, but it does.
That one always gets me smiling too, especially if the tongue is out.
(two thumbs up)
sitting on a beach with a breeze blowing and the sun on my face
A picture of myself holding my niece when she was a baby, taken a long time ago. My niece posted it in fb for my birthday. Brought back sweet memories and made me smile.
When I'm talking to someone who is very clearly miserable and something I say inadvertantly makes their face light up with life again.
This video makes me smile every time I go back and find it again. (and it's not anything I have any connection to, or that anyone I know has any connection to either, by the way - just in case anyone wonders ).
beautiful shoes. I love shoes... I smile whenever I see beautiful shoes.
