Thing That Make My Smile

Here’s a list of things that make me smile:

1) Seeing an older couple walking along holding hands.

2) Seeing a daddy holding the tiny hand of his daughter as they walk along.

3) A brilliant sunrise or sunset.

4) Watching my daughters ride their bikes.

5) Watching my daughters read a book.

6) Driving winding country roads through acres and acres of apple orchards.

7) Seeing a family laugh together.

8) Watching my wife scrapbook, something she loves doing.

9) Watching my kids sleep.

10) Getting up early and listening to the silence right before the sun rises.

11) Taking a walk late at night when the world around is sleeping.

12) Seeing someone take the time to stop and smell the roses around our front porch.

What are some things that make you smile?

  1. Mike, to your list, I would add:(1) Watching toddlers. And watching them do anything — they’re exploring the world for the first time and everything is always new.(2) Biking downhill at 39 miles an hour — and living to tell the story. (Well, it DID make me smile last September. But only after it was over.)(3) Watching my wife become 12 years old again and get excited about a still-performing British singing group from the 1960s.(4) Seeing my sons turn into really cool adults seemingly overnight. (5) Watching a mated pair of cardinals who’ve moved into my backyard.(6) The explosion of flowers in my garden caused one 18-month-old to jump up and down and clap her hands so enthusiastically that her mother joined her.

Early morning walks when the dew is still fresh on the grass. 4. Having my whole family sit down to dinner together. Regarding an older couple holding hands; I’m 51 and always hold my husband’s hand. I had a car accident a few years ago that messed up my inner ear affecting my balance. If I didn’t hold on I’d fall over. lol Happily, my husband doesn’t mind. 🙂
