Five Things to Smile About

List five things that always, and immediately, bring a smile to your face…

  1. Unexpected silliness, random answers or forgotten chocolate…
  2.  Unsolicited gratitude for small things that I’m expected to do, because that tells me I’ve met someone’s needs…
  3. Candid pictures of people or animals I love that hold special memories…
  4. Gingerbread cookies…
  5. Leaving work on Fridays…

I’m finding that once I’ve started the list, it’s hard to stop. There are a lot of things that always & immediately make me smile.  I tried to generalize a bit to make it more challenging.  Of course, my husband, son, mom, dear friends or my pets fit the criteria, and that would easily fill all of the slots.

(This is from a book entitled Start Where You Are that my husband gifted me for Christmas.  I’m excited to start on this journey and hope to continue sharing my responses here.)
