    As I was drinking my morning coffee on my back porch, watching the sun come up, I got to thinking of how much pleasure that brings to me. What are some of the little things in life that bring you pleasure? Here are some of mine:

    hearing the birds sing and watching them at the feeder and birdbath
    being with my grandsons
    clean windows
    a beautiful day (no matter the season)
    a pair of jeans that actually fit
    comfortable shoes
    finishing a project (quilting or other)
    reading a good book
    having a little time during the day for myself
    sending off a box of handmade items to charity

    There must be more, but I've got to get to work now!

    Let's hear from you!

    Seeing my children pull up out front. Seeing and hearing the little grandkids running toward me hollering,"Hi Mawma!"

    An unexpected visit from one of the kids; especially when I am working long hours. I wonder if they really know how that can brighten my day?

    watching my cat sleep on his back - he looks like such a dust bunny - and his tail is hanging down the side of the chair
    when DS puts the leftovers away after supper
    when someone "quotes" something I said on the QB - in a positive way
    the first ripe tomatoes from the garden
