Things That Make Me Smile




No matter what mood I may be feeling, no matter what circumstances present themselves, there is always something to be happy about--whether it be a memory or an experience.

Some Things That Make Me Smile:

- the way the light dances on the amber leaves of a Japanese maple in the wind

- the fervent and boisterous song of the very small, yet stalwart, Carolina wren

- my husband's attempts to make me laugh which are usually successful

- the way my cats curl up in a circle, tilt their heads under, and stretch their toes out

- the first blushing of a full tomato on the vine in the vegetable garden

- the fragrance of Carolina Jessamine blooms as I walk by them over and over again

- the cottony and fluffy texture of Lamb's Ears between my thumb and forefinger

What makes you smile?

  8. Being with family makes me smile. I love a ripen tomato too. There's nothing like home grown tomatoes. A good cup of coffee makes me smile. And your two blogs make me smile. I am so glad to have found them.
