Here are some of the many little things that make me happy. (And not necessarily in this order, it's just how my brain works.)
- The Indian summer of Colorado where, last weekend it was the first snow, this weekend it's 80 degrees.
- Candy corn. I don't like it any other time than the fall. (Stale, perhaps?) And after October, it's Indian corn.
- Dogs. My dog, Harry, is the cutest thing ever. It's like how parents never stop fawning over their children, that's the way I am about my furry child...he gives me unconditional love...even though he never gets scraps from me.
- Frosting. It's my weakness and is normally attached to something like cake which is attached to a special occasion which is attached to a party which is attached to time with family and friends. Frosting: It's the glue of fun.
- Family. They drive you nuts, but make you who you are. No matter what, they have to like you...well, your parents anyway.
- Friends. They are the family you chose and I love everyone of them. They pick me up when I am down and make me laugh to the point of oxygen deprivation.
- Contact. While I am sitting by myself on the couch and have had very little contact with the outside world today, I normally like to touch base with those important people in my life on a regular basis.
- Straws. They help me drink tons of water and they turn into a replacement to gum in a pinch.
Appreciation for what you have and not resting in the disappoint for the lack of your "wants" will make for a happier life and deeper satisfaction. Those little things in life make all the difference and are the most important.
