Here’s a simple list of 10 things that make me happy…
1. Smiling at someone and getting a smile in return.
2. Creating something, like a piece of embroidery or a soft sculpture.
3. Starting a new book or rereading/revisiting an old favorite for the umpteenth million time.
4. Singing and dancing (or baltering) around just for the fun of it ~ alone or with others.
5. Enjoying a warm cup of coffee or tea on the porch early in the morning while watching the neighborhood wake up.
6. Waking up to a bright and gorgeously sunny morning filled with bird songs (I am so longing for Spring).
7. Receiving a friendly letter or e-mail from someone ~ just because.
8. Engaging in an interesting, enjoyable, witty, goofy, anything and everything conversation with a friend.
9. Indulging in an extraordinarily rich and delectable piece of chocolate…or two.
