I am sure this question is going to generate very interesting information. There are thousands of small things that may make one happy. List may stretch too far and that's why attempting to list few. 1. People get happy when they receive small gifts matching their interest 2. A toy, instrument or an apparatus non-functional for a long period gets repaired and start working 3. Any sort of appreciation from elders or authorities 4. Someone very close becomes happy due to your efforts 5. An advise help a person to sort out problems 6. Anything gifted to a needy person etc. etc..
The beauty of flowers make me happy. I am taken by their delicacy and majesty. The authentic colors so pure dress the flowers in regal colors ranging from reds, purple, orange to pastel yellows and pinks. If the flower has a sweet fragrance I am even happier.
"It's the little things that make you smile" is something I always say...for me that can mean so many things.,,hearing a bird, seeing a butterfly, finding a quarter on the sidewalk, having a friend call when I'm down, hearing my favorite song when I turn the car ignition on :-)
The answer to that question is so simple that it is complicated.
In my life, the little things are turning on the computer only to hear gun shots blasting from a speaker (thank you son), seeing the happy in the eyes of child, my puppy falling asleep with my thumb in his mouth, big green fields, blue skys with fluffy white clouds, unbuttoned pants from the effects of a homecooked meal.
Sleep and I mean a complete 8 hours of deep sleep. I seldom get it specially when I'm flying. Nothing feels like it when I'm in my own bed. Now a days, this little simple thing in life is kind of hard to get and when I get it, I am the happiest.
I think it is really very important to enjoy all the little things in life -- from the smell of the air to the green of the lawn, from the kiss of the sun to the joy in living, and from the smiling faces around you to thinking positive and believing, knowing that you are blessed with every breath you take and each adventure you partake.
Time with my family, Summer wind chimes, flowers, gardening, when pain goes away, grandchildren, the ocean, finding the perfect shell on the beach , the sound of the ocean, smell or the air after a summer storm.
What makes me happy is when I can get out of bed with no aches and pain. I get happy when I write and perform my poetry. I get happy when I walk around in my 3 bed and 4bath house. I use to live in my car so a lot of things makes me happy.
All the little things that this wonderful planet has to offer me - the trees and the flowers, the chirping of the birds, the sounds of laughter of small children, the smell of wet earth, the rivers, and the beaches and the oceans - and above all the human intelligence, to appreciate what one is blessed with.
A "mom, I love you and your the best mommy in the world" from my daughter. Family huddle hugs between my husband, daughter and myself and of course our lil fat chihuahua, lol...exchanging words of " I love you, everyday on a daily basis. I have lost many friends and family due to my illnesses, but that doesn't matter to me anymore that little thing called "love" between my immediate family, makes up for everything else I have lost.

The smiles of my beautiful little girls :-) Getting into a comfortable bed at the end of each day. Laughing with friends,family or colleagues. Sitting on the deck in my garden on a still, starry evening or on a weekend day right after i've mowed the grass and it all looks so neat and tidy. Driving home from work on a bright evening. Sitting down on my couch right after we've gotten the kids to bed :-) Having a good workout or hitting a PB in the gym.
Quite a lot come to think of it,I'm sure i could easily add a few more.It's good to remember the little things.Thanks for reminding me today :-)
A child's smile, a lover's kiss, blue sky. Restless waves, smell of coffee, the first lick of chocolate, a soothing hand on my face, a kind look, a generous comment, an answered prayer, a mothers touch, a dads approval, a friends reassurance, a simple meal when hungry... A beautiful question like this that sets off a cascade of memories.. Thanks.
These are the Little Things that bring me happiness: a clear conscience, peaceful times with friends and family, reading a good book, hugs from people I love, helping in some way, my sweet husband of 42 years, my cuddly little mutt of a dog, being blessed to live where I do (on peaceful & verdant Vancouver Island with no mosquitoes or flies), finally publishing a hub, feedback on my writing, a certain cotton skirt I just purchased, sleeping well, chocolate (occasionally), a refreshing glass of water when I've been in the garden for a while, knowing that Jesus is with me always until the end of time (Matthew 28:16-20)-- some of these "little things" are actually pretty big and profound of course.
For me I would have to say putting a smile on someones face, who has otherwise had a crummy day. Also having a few hours to myself in a quiet space, where I am able to write. Just a few things that stick in me head at the moment.
Watching my grandbaby toddle across a room. Flowers in bloom. Sunshine after a storm. A hot tub in the snow. My husbands laughter. A soft blanket to wrap up with when it's cold. Kids who phone home from far away, just to visit with their mom.
Everything being clean! Everything! Front of yard- to the bsck- all cars- etc head to tie!! Get this! Its a fact! My must keep ur kitchen clean at all times in order to be happy- less depressed?! True for me! No clutter, dishes etc
I feel really happy when I go shopping for my 8 months old baby, and I feel even more happy when he smile and plays with me. He is my Life, I will feel happy for every time he smiles, it will make me think that my child is proud of me and he knows how much i love him. Great question.
I made this request when I was such in a good mood that day...Suprisingly there has been quite a few hub created based on this. I enjoy those of you who shared your little things to brighten my days. Little things that...
Does ringing in the ear mean anything (spiritually)?I get the deafening tone and high pitched ringing every now and then. Probably 10 times a year. Today it happened once... Then a few minutes later happened again. I...
I'm working late, and answering angry emails combined with endless moderation has got me down. I'm trying to concentrate on the little things that make me smile. I thought I'd start a thread so I can keep...
