Things that Make Me Smile All Over My Face

Short list of things that put an instant smile on my face.

  • BREAD. I mostly prefer Italian, not sliced bread. I recently discovered Panera Bread. Whoever invented the soup in a bread bowl should have a plaque in their honor.
  • SALSA MUSIC. I don’t know who’s spirit is not lifted by salsa music. I love the classics: watch a few.

(with Ms. Debbie Allen getting down!)

And my all-time favorite song!

  • THE SUN- Especially after days of snow and bitter weather.
  • TEXT MESSAGES LATE AT NIGHT or EARLY IN THE MORNING- Who doesn’t want to be the last thought before bed or the first memory as soon as the sun rises?

  • SURPRISES- Mostly when I can anticipate them. :)
  • FLIGHT CONFIRMATION E-MAILS- I love planes. I probably went into the wrong field.
  • KITTENS- Self-explanatory.
  • RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS- The last random act of kindness that someone did for me was interpret some math scores. Anyone who struggles with math knows exactly what that means.
  • THE RIGHT SONG at THE RIGHT TIME- Ever been listening to Pandora and then POW! that song comes on. Yea, powerful.
  • BABIES LAUGHTER- Have you seen this one yet?
  • YOU TUBE VIDEOS that you’re glad you wasted time watching- Like this one:

  • WRITING- When I can’t seem to be productive, writing is always easy. Hitting the PUBLISH button makes my day.

What are some things that make your list?

  1. In earlier times did you know that some civilizations considered the Sun itself as God?

    Reading and writing are two things that serve as a constant in my life. Especially when I’m reading a writer or author whose material and style of writing I’ve grown to appreciate more than others i.e. John Grisham, Ralph Wiley, Dream Hampton.

    I like eating slices of wheat bread, separately, or with an apple.

    In ’08 someone introduced me to Salsa music, it was nice, but I just couldn’t seem to get all the way into it. Or, in a way that made me want to continue listening. Blame this factor on years and years of hip hip and the fact that I’m an R&B head.

    Co-sign early morning and late-night text messages.

    • I’m not surprised, the sun has some amazing qualities.

      Tell me more about this hip-hip. I haven’t heard of it. :)

      Eating wheat bread with an apple- that’s hilarious! I don’t like apples and force myself to eat wheat bread.

    Going for a drive outside the city limits. Seeing the green grass, barns, and sun hitting my face. I smile just at the realization that I’m alive to enjoy the simple things.

    Babies, giggling & cooing.

    The smell of bacon & baking in a home!

    Ex texts out of the blue…it’s nice to know you’re thought of and that you left an impression.

    I co-sign on the early AM texts.

    I love finding a dollar bill in my pocket.

    I love Calypso – the way you feel about Salsa I feel about Calypso!

    I love when my dog is running so fast that she trips over her paws or flips! Too cute!
