My One Viola

Amy, of "Clearing the Air," has inspired me to think of the simple things that make me happy. Simple things do make me happy, but I am laughing out loud as I face the challenging part... I really need to zip-it! My busy brain keeps rationalizing and categorizing and battling and sort of whining in a very tedious and sad way. Zip-it brain. We are talking happy right now!


simple things make me happy

flowers
laughter
clean feet
summer rain
campfires
water, drinking, spraying, splashing, swimming, floating,
everyone together and reading aloud
breezes
falling asleep with everyone home
packages from near and far
cut limes
hot corn tortillas
old movies and pop-corn
taking pictures
watching children and hens
hearing from family and friends... baby news
quilting by hand
dresses that swirl and girls that twirl
my children happily sharing a new toy for hours and hours and hours

  1. "Summer rain" caught my eye as I read down your list. Sounds so un-Californian :-)

  4. What a fine list. I know. It takes effort to think positively sometimes, but there's always a lot to be thankful for too.
