How many of us make a list every day? We list our groceries, things to do, appointments to keep, phone calls to make, etc., etc.
Today I’m making a different list…a list of things that make me smile instantaneously…and here it is:
Birds in the birdbath and at the feeder
Squirrels chasing each other up and down trees and along high wires
A toddler toddling
A baby’s laugh
An elderly couple holding hands
An unexpected hug
Children at play
A good news phone call
The instant flash of a red cardinal
A robin’s plump red breast
That’s only ten but I could go on and on. The best part of making this kind of list is that it makes me smile all over again just thinking about these things.
What gives you a sudden smile? Do you have such a list?
