With all the walking I have been doing lately, I have had some time to think and one thing that came to mind was all the little things we enjoy in life. So often we are focused on the things we think we need and deserve that we do not thank God for the many little things that make life so pleasant for us. So here is my list of 10 Little Things That Make Me Happy.
1. Clean sheets....I think one of the best moments of the week is when I climb into my bed on Tuesday evenings and I am greeted with clean sheets!! They just feel so good!!
2. A Hot Cup of Coffee in the Morning.... I love the new McCafe Brands that are on sale at Walmart now. One of my favorite places to get coffee is McDonalds. Some mornings after I drop the kiddos off at school, I will stop for a nice cuppa.
3.My Morning Newspaper which is delivered at my door each day. I like starting the day off with the newspaper and the cryptoquote.
4.A pedicure at my favorite nail boutique. I treated myself to a pedicure yesterday and I am loving my Coral toenails this morning.
5.A handwritten note in the mail. I have several friends who are good to send me "real" mail. I am part of the encouragement committee at our church. This committee is made up of ladies who take a week two times a year to write notes to church members who need encouragement.
6.My grandchildren's giggles....is there anything so sweet?
7.A good book....you all know how I love to read so when I get a good book in my hands, I am a happy camper.
8. A Muddy's cupcake....I only get these when we visit Lee and Lanier in Memphis but every time I put a bite of their chocolate chocolate cupcake in my mouth, I just savor it. Forget fancy chocolates, this cupcake is my favorite treat.
9.When my sweet husband empties the dishwasher for me....I hate that chore so when Marvin does it for me, I always give him a big thank you. Really any of the little things my engineer husband does for me makes me happy. He is not a touchy feely person and is not big on effusive compliments etc but he shows me his love for me in the things he does for me.
10.My Bible Study time...the 30 minutes I sit down with my Ipad and listen to the teaching available at Through the Bible, I am thankful for the technology that makes it possible.
Those are just a few of the little things that make me happy...how about you? Do you have something that is small that makes you happy? I would love to know what it is!! Leave me a comment!
