Happy Things

I'm not one that usually forwards those emails that say stuff like, "Pass this on to seven friends and you will get a million dollars from Bill Gates! This is real!"

Every once in a while, though, there's one I like. This one is pretty simple: Happy Things.

1. Falling in love.
2. Laughing so hard your face hurts.
3. A hot shower.
4. No lines at the supermarket.
5. A special glance.
6. Getting mail.
7. Taking a drive on a pretty road.
8. Hearing your favorite song on the radio.
9. Lying in bed listening to the rain outside.
10. Hot towels fresh out of the dryer.
11. Chocolate milkshake (vanilla or strawberry).
12. A bubble bath.
13. Giggling.
14. A good conversation.
15. The beach
16. Finding a 20 dollar bill in your coat from last winter.
17. Laughing at yourself.
18. Looking into their eyes and knowing they Love you
19. Midnight phone calls that last for hours.
20. Running through sprinklers.
21. Laughing for absolutely no reason at all.
22. Having someone tell you that you're beautiful.

41. Watching the sunrise.
42. Knowing that somebody misses you.
43 Knowing that somebody's praying for you.

  1. What a fun list!!! Happy things are the BEST things!

  2. Thanks. I love that happy list.

  3. Hey Sally-
    Thanks for the comment on my blog. I really like your blog and check it all the time. Just to introduce myself, I was in Brad's MSW program and found your link from Stacey's blog :P.

  4. Man, I felt so happy just reading each one of those and remembering times in my life when I experienced them!

    I changed my blog address. You should be able to get to it though by clicking on my name above this comment. E-mail me if you can't!

  5. I love these. Glad you posted them, glad to have a few flash backs of memories through your list. Happy days!

  6. and I'll add #46, reading your blog! And thanks for sharing that list. If one could measure one's happiness level, like on a happy-o-meter or something, I bet that my happiness reading would have just shot up as a result of reading that list. :)
