Things that make me smile

We have this long drive to/from HBOT treatments for Emma and that gives me loads of time to think about things. My recent thoughts have been around all the little things that make me happy. Really, I'm a pretty easy gal to please.

So, what has me smiling lately?
  • Finding my favorite song on the car radio and singing it at the top of my lungs and hearing the girls in the back seat *singing* it with me.
  • A snow day that cancels school and we all get an extra day off to spend together as a family. Hot chocolate, a favorite movie, building a snowman.
  • Being curled up on the couch with a warm blanket, a cup of tea and a great book.
  • A full nights sleep without anyone waking up. Truthfully? This makes me absolutely giddy!
  • A kiss from Chris when he comes home from work.
  • Julia coming over to me just long enough to give me a huge hug and a kiss and then move on to play with her toys. Aaahhhh......the joy of impromptu love from your child!
  • Emma's giggle. It's contagious.
  • "Finding" the girls under the covers, in their forts, in the closet and hearing them laugh like crazy while I'm looking for them and then their squeal of delight when I find them.
  • The McDonald's coffee cup. I just tried McD's coffee in the winter for the first time and fell in love with the cup! It's amazing how this cup holds red hot coffee yet is not even warm in my hand. There is no need to use that annoying cardboard covering over the cup. How come they seem to be the only outfit that uses such a cup? I am now a repeat customer at McD's ;-)

What makes you smile?
