Sporting a big goofy grin.


There is always someone or something that makes us smile. However, sometimes, and I don't think I'm alone on this, a smile is a lot harder to come by than it should be. In an attempt to make every day smile worthy, I've put together a list of little things that always leave me with a happy feeling.

Check them out and add your own!

1. Falling in love.
2. A special glance.
3. No lines at the supermarket.
4. Hearing my favorite song on the radio.
5. Lying in bed listening to the rain outside.
6. Hot towels fresh out of the dryer.
7. A long distance phone call.
8. Having someone tell you that you're beautiful.
9. Friends.
10. Waking up and realizing you still have a few hours left to sleep.
11. Sweet dreams.
12. Accidentally overhearing someone say something nice about you.
13. Running into an old friend and realizing that some things never change.
14. Watching the expression on someone's face as they open a much desired present from me.
15. My kids coming home from school.
16. A work day that flies by.
17. Holding hands with someone you care about.
18. Finding a money in my pants pocket from last week.
19. My cat when she snuggles close to me.
20. Coming home to a clean house.

How about you, what little things put a smile on your face?

1. Asking a Lady out for the first time and she accepts.

2. Climbing a mountain and reaching the peak.

3. Thinking I've failed a difficult test and finding I got a perfect score.

4. A baby's smile.

5. Being able to help someone in trouble ( I don't normally smile but it feels good even if I've ended up covered in smoke or bruises )

6. A good joke.

7. Turning on the tv and finding a program you have wanted to see for ages is about to start.

8. Making contact with a long lost friend.

9. Someone asking a question they are sure no one knows the answer to and you know it.

10. When my daughter does something to be proud of.

one thing that makes me smile every morning when i get up..this very good male friend of mine who sends me an untiring phone text every morning saying.."love u love love uuuuuuuuuuu.." kind of cute and brightens my morning though i get up at the wrong side of bed. It annoys me in the beginning now it brings smile on my face and a good start of my long day ahead.

Hello Odette, i have lots to catch up here..been hectic for me in the past weeks.

Odette said...

Amna,
finally! i was kind of wondering where you've been, when i dont see you here anymore.
welcome back, and i hope everything's fine with you.
missed you, muah!
xoxo
