Things That Make Me Happy

  1. Christmas coming.
  2. Christmas being over.
  3. Holding my wife's hand when we are at church together.
  4. The smell of donuts on a lazy morning (even if I am the one who ran out to get them).
  5. My family being warm and cozy while the cold wind howls outside our house.
  6. Seeing my son's face when I pick him up from school or when he wakes up.
  7. Leaving the house on the first morning of fall when there's a snap in the air.
  8. My son's feet not reaching the floor when he is sitting at the kitchen table.
  9. Cold strawberry Kool-aid on a hot day.
  10. Typing away on my computer while my Shih Tzus snooze next to me.
  11. Starbucks.
  12. Naps (morning, lunch time, early afternoon, late afternoon- any time!).
  13. My son being fed, bathed, read to, and peacefully sleeping in his bed.
  14. A FULL tank of gas.
  15. Seeing this when I walk outside my classroom door:

What makes you happy?


  1. Awesome list. I so love the smell of donuts.

    1. Hi there! Thank you! I think I'll head for the donut shop right now to think about why my pants are so tight! :)

  2. Can't help, but love your list too and that phot of the rainbow at the end, absolutely gorgeous and priceless, too!! :)

  3. I love the little things that make us happy. Thanks for "sharing life's simple pleasures".

    1. It we don't let the little things make us happy, we'd be in a heap of trouble, Joanne! Have a great day!

  4. What a great list!! I like the little one's feet not quite reaching the floor too, all too soon they're reaching them and then some. :)

    Cool rainbow to end your work day with, & even cooler that you got a pic. ;)

    1. Thanks, Rosey! You're right! His feet seem to get closer to the floor daily!
