Happy Things

I know this might sound cheesy but I don't care.

I was wondering, if you thought back on your day today what are some specific things to be happy about today? I don't so much mean things to be thankful for like "being alive" or "sun shining," but what are four or five specific things that made you happy today?

I like to hear about little bits of people's days and what excites other people...

Here's mine:

-free refills (it was so hot today!)
-regional accents (coming from a child!)
-having time for lunch
-light traffic
-having a pencil when I needed one
-puppy stories (thanks Mims )
-finding a forgotten shopping bag (with stuff in it!)

Today was a particularly tough day for both Lee (my honey) and me but we still managed to have a few laughs at our own expense. And I saw my daughter and her oldest boy laughing with each other today. Since he's become a teenager that's a rarity...and seeing them giggling together made me happy.

Thanks for the reminder Anneli, that there's always something to be happy about even amidst difficulty.

The best things in life are cheesy, Anneli!

My five things:

1. Watcing Nicholas -- my 16-month-old -- laugh hysterically while splashing around in a sprinkler

2. Eating my dad's famous spaghetti for dinner

3. Finding out I got a fourth class to teach for fall semester

4. Getting to take a nap

5. Finishing a fan fic

Wow, I had a busier day than I thought!

Great topic Anneli!

- Knowing that I made someone (Anneli) happy with my Puppy Stories;
- Seeing Oreo (my puppy lol) swim for the first time and loving it;
- Sitting on the Starbucks Patio, gossiping and drinking coffee with some friends;
- Finding a parking spot right at the door of a very busy Shopping Mall;
- Having a nap in the hammock at the cottage;
- Chatting with my favorite Online buddies;
- Getting a package rather than bills in the mail;

Can we add more later??

What a fun topic

Here's some of mine for today

-that my sister is feeling better and that I can make her laugh
-I finally figured out the title and singer of this song I've liked forever (Fade Into You, Mazzy Star)
-that my coworker tells the longest, most random stories that make me laugh (she reminds me of my mom)
-that I finally stopped singing "Go Tell Aunt Rhoda" *keeps fingers crossed*
-that this thread is called "Happy Things" made me smile

Being a more positive person is something I strive for everyday. So, thank you for this thread, Anneli. I actually have had a day-by-day calendar on my desk at work (the same calender in the appropriate year every day for the last 3 years) that is entitled "5 Things To Be Happy About" and each day it lists 5 little things I should be happy about. Some of them bring out my sarcasm, but others are really great. I'll post a couple here and there in this thread.

My happinesses for today:

- Going to and finally getting my Sam's Club card
- Dr. B's cheery, sing-songy "Gooooood MORNINGGGGGGGG, Whitney!"
- Eating a salad from Costa Vida for dinner (seriously, my mouth waters!)
- The joy that is ice and water.
- Cleaning my bathroom... germ-a-phobeness can be at peace for a few days!
- Having a few laughs with my favorite co-worker.

madewy: "Today was a particularly tough day for both Lee (my honey) and me but we still managed to have a few laughs at our own expense."

I hope I didn't give anyone the wrong idea with my above post. I didn't mean to ba a downer in any way but maybe I was because more than one of you, with great generosity of spirit, contacted me to see if everything is ok. Everything is ok! It was just one of those days...yet I still had a happy moment or three.

And if you will allow here is today's list of happy things;
1. A very dear friend, one of you, sent me the most wonderul E card.
2. I had a warm and fuzzy phone conversation with another fabulous one of you.

3. I got to read a book today with my littlest grandson, Mikey Moo. (two and a half).

4. I got invited to a two year olds birthday party for Saturday and bought her a Disney Princess dress.
