Little Loves

It truly is the little things in life that make the difference between a good day and a bad one. Here are the little things that make my life beautiful today. Most of them are free.

1. An unexpected lunch date with Rob.

2. Susan Boyle on youtube.

3. An ice cold diet coke.

4. new lipgloss

5. a sweet email from a friend.

6. Azaleas in full bloom.

7. An unopened bottle of vanilla body wash.

8. Knock-knock jokes told by an 8 year old. They aren't really funny, but they make me laugh.

9. Rocking the itunes: Dancing with myself.

10. A rousing rendition of "Everyone Smiles in the Same Language" at a school play.

11. Pastel wrapped Hershey's Kisses.

12. Knowing where the wine opener is.

13. Anticipation a day off and a new haircut/color. Yes. Color. The first time.

14. A jumbled up recitation of the ABC song: R, O, P, Q..... T, U, W.

15. You. Whoever and wherever you are, dear reader.

Well you're right, there are so many little things if we can just find the time to note and appreciate them.
Best wishes

Susan Boyles is my current hero.

I'm right in line with most of your list. Also, for me getting either my Netflix rentals and/or my comic book subscriptions in the mail feels like a present even though I've actually paid for it.

Like Gus told Laurie in Lonesome Dove when she was disappointed that her dream of going to San Francisco would never happen. "Life in San Francisco is still just life. If you want any one thing too much its like to turn out a disappointment. The way I see it to be happy in this world you've got to learn to enjoy the everyday little things."

What a lovely post, Melinda.

I have never had Hershey's kisses, ever. Not sure if we can even get them over here.

I love your list. Susan Boyle is at the top of mine right now as well.

#8 happens here too only with a 6 year old.

I feel bad for rhubarbwhine b/c she has never tasted a Hershey's kiss. Melinda, have you tasted the new cherry kisses? They taste like chocolate covered cherries. So yummy.

Much love from NJ,
