The List

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?

  1. I do not have such a list on my To Do list of lists that I need to make. But, I am going to add it to the top and start a new one each day. I think it will be a challenge and one that will cost me nothing but a smile 🙂 Thanks for giving me a much needed grin to start my morning! ~ Blessings ~
