They Make Me Happy

I am one that needs to put life into perspective. When all seems bleak, I take a look at the world around me and looke for the things that make me happy, that take my breath away. Those perfect moments that you can't replicate. These things don't cost anything, they are just there. My list is getting pretty long, so I'll have to do this for a few weeks. Here's the first 10.

1. Laying in the grass, looking at the clouds

2. Lilacs


3. Worn in jeans

4. Goofy children


5. Chocolate

6. That spritz of your favorite perfume


7. Spongebob Squarepants

8. Cat licks from sandpaper tongues and


9. Big sloppy dog kisses.

10. The final scene of "An American in Paris."


What are the things that make your life happy? Won't you play, too?

Can't say 'sponge bob squarepants' does it for me, but hey whatever floats your boat! here he is called 'bob l'eponge'/bob the sponge!, and I saw a huge huge softie of him just the other week, in a village brocante, and wondered who would buy it! perhaps now I know...haha thanks for your visit 'chez moi' and your jolly comment; a bientot, Linda x

it's great to be reminded to appreciate the small things that make us happy, so thanks for the reminder. :-)

What an uplifting post. Chocolate and kitty kisses make me happy, too, as well as long walks and the sound of birds. A little shopping doesn't hurt, either.

i made a list somewhat like that before too, but more on a few of my favorite things:

Okay, quick now, I won't overthink it:

1. Rich gourmet coffee
2. Flowers
3. Birds
4. Time with God
5. A Good Book
6. A movie with my husband
7. A beautiful walk
8. A luxurious bubble bath
9. An unexpected gift
10. Traveling

Hey, this could be a post! By the way, any of this could be transformed into a writer date like the ones being discussed today at HCB. If I post on it, I will link it back to you!

Lilacs - nothing could be more lovely. Wonderful list.

I laughed about the jelly bracelets you commented about! What goes around comes around....My son loves wearing these t-shirt bracelets and even sneaks wearing it in school. (what a rebel.) I got him the neatest baseball bracelet on Etsy that is made from a real baseball and the red stitching. It's very cool.
