A happy list

I have been focused on "woe is me". The feeding tube - Regina - has got me down. ""45"'s reaction to neo-Nazis and white supremists rallying in Charlottesville has been far less than presidential. I am sad and frustrated and angry about the larger issues facing our world. When I feel this way I have to remind myself to focus on the things that bring me joy. So, in response to the evil, morally deficient things going on in the world, I bring you my HAPPINESS LIST (in no particular order):

1. Croaking frogs
2. Eating Taco Bell with Sarah
3. Laughing with Ean
4. Snakes - little ones
5. Black cherry jello with fresh blueberries and whipped cream
6. The smell outside after it rains
7. The way the creek runs after a heavy rain
8. Podcasts
9. Babies
10. Seeing pictures of kids going off to college
11. Jimmy Fallon
12. People who check in on me
13. Laughing with Adam about the silly things people say - someone told me to "use the new bathroom in good health" - it cracked us up!
15. Seeing the people I love happy
16. A straightened up living room
17. The feeling you get when you go through "stuff" that has been sitting around for a long time and you give most of it away
18. My Wonder Woman blanket
19. The sound my pwc makes as it rolls through crunchy leaves
20. Adam washing my face
21. Cold milk
22. Forgiveness
23. My birthday
24. The giant decorative grass in our front landscaping
25. Stretching
26. Soft kisses
27. Our new cup that keeps drinks cold for hours
28. Hibiscus flowers

What would be on your list?


  1. Having a,husband and family that loves me as much as yours loves you! #20 made me cry.
