~What in your life doesn't make you scream, but instead makes you smile? (I think that I needed to do this to help me to recognize these things and to assist in balancing the ones that make me scream.
So,...right now in my life the things that make me smile are:
*my niece, and many other people.
*reassuring professors.
*living on the ocean.
*jazz brunch and coffee on sundays.
*the scent of lilacs in the floral dept. at the grocery store.
*my kittys.
*finding my favorite pair of pants for 8 dollars.
*or coat for 10. hehe.
*a perfect photograph.
*watching friends perform at acoustic night.
*working for the sweetest people.
*feeling the sun warm my back as I walk.
*watching E skate.
*the fact that E's getting me a new guitar.
*and many more, which is good to think about. I must recognize these things more. Yeah? *Peace.

Hmmm, let's see....
Waking up to the smell of fresh brewed coffee and sunshine,
Finding a "shmily" from the hubby and giving one in return,
Memories of the kids when they were little,
Making memories with them now when they are grown,
Watching the antics of the dogs,
Reading the great poetry here,
Watching a perfect sunset,
Sitting in front of a warm fire, knowing everyone is safe while a blizzard rages outside,
A hug from a friend,
Listening to the elderly telling tales of their youth,
Winter, spring, summer and fall,

Great thread SpitFire, certainly makes me realize there's a lot more that makes me smile than I have to vent about! Thanks.

Poetry.

The email I got from my friend Dorothy today--she is looking into this site and wants to invite one of her friends to join us here as well!

The fact that even though it snowed yesterday, it's going to be warm all this week.

Being on spring break and knowing I'll be done with school in about two months.

Finally wrapping up a big project.

Having a long conversation with a friend.

Flowers--roses, pink carnations, and lilacs.

the sun on my face

a good book to read

my husband telling me he loves me

getting a day out with my mom

a new hair cut ( a good new hair cut)

shopping, without necesarily buying something

going to the ocean

a wild storm

the sound of a friend's voice

music

great Italian food

dancing.....slow

watching old tapes I recorded of MTV before it became a freak show

going for a long drive with no destination in mind

a new tattoo

roller skating

driving with my kids and the radio up real loud and them singing along with the songs I love.....( such a blast)

finding money I didn't know I had

sleeping in

early morning talks with my husband.....or late night ones too

of course poetry

...life.

many of us complain (myself included) but I think in the overall scheme of things... we don't have it so bad, eh?

...people who look at the positive side.

peace 'n' hugs A

Anyone who cares to post these things like this and is willing to listen to everyone whine or is willing to listen to what everyone thinks.

Someone who can relate to the same stresses or at least stress level that I am on.

Dancing in the rain.
Listening to my grandmother talk about her mother.
Listening to the rain on my roof and remembering that I actually HAVE a roof.
Making someone laugh.
Hugs.
Watching the clouds float by while making them into animals and fairytales.
The look on my mom's face after I wash the dishes.
Knowing that no matter how annoying my sister gets, she's still there to talk.
Hearing a great song on the radio after a horrible day at school.
Dogs that lick my face and don't pay attention to the grief that it wears.

K now I'm happier...thanks so much for the thread.

Jesse and Kyle...my boys

the fact that I woke up this morning
internet chat buddies that keep me sane at 3am
digging in the dirt to plant a new rose

PIP........I forgot PIP!! How could I have forgotten PIP?!?!

*looks* WAIT!
I forgot COCA-COLA!!!!!!! OMG!!!
Seriously.......when I am stressed out a nice, cold can of coke does the trick. Especially when it stings my throat and I make this weird lizard face and feel the tingling sensation as it flows down to my stomach and my body commences to shiver out of pleasure....MMMMmmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!!!!!

erm......ok

~ three days weekends

~ waking up in the morning, pulling the curtain back, opening the window and being smacked with the sweetness of the day: liquid gold sunshine, leaves whirling in the breeze, breathing in air that lightens every inch of your body

~ getting a seemingly insignificant message on ICQ, opening it and finding it's your fabulous always-unavailable friend who's been in China for the past two years, and hasn't had any sort of internet connection for the past nine months

~ coming home feeling so so tired after work... but biking to the gym anyway and feeling the stress fall away as you pedal. In the gym, sweating hard as you push your body against gravity and metal, then biking home singing to the sting of the wind on your ears. Arriving home, taking an especially long hot shower, then fixing a bowl of tomato soup and a place on the bed to curl up with the book-of-the-moment.

~ walking in the door every night and seeing that grin.

~ watching your legs turn from wax to bronze in the sun.

~ finally getting the nerve to dye your hair RED and establishing that you can actually pull it off

~ a boyfriend that cleans house when you're sick …
   then fixes you dinner.

~ calling in sick: that beautiful moment where you lay your head back down and sleep the sleep of the careless.

~ cherry blossoms

~ beating any male at strategy/war games.

~ a room full of candles

~ thunderstorms

~ coffee shops. hot tea.

~ being known for holistic remedies... and watching someone break down to ask for whatever weird concoction I have that will get rid of the sickness that's driving them mad.

~ the call the next day that lets me know they feel 110% better (and the tinge of surprise/light reluctance/obvious smile in their voice).

~ a perfect apple

~ a full refrigerator

~ seeing the place picked up and knowing all the laundry is done

~ BNL

~ riding with my (bare) feet out the window

~ getting picked up at the end of the day on the motorcycle

~ discovering a book that makes me ravenous

~ rhetorical questions at 2am

~ learning I have an accent … and hearing that it’s contagious.

~ my birthmark

~ Indian food

~ someone so excited about what they’re saying, the rest of the world could fall apart and they wouldn’t slow their animation

~  my reality (sometimes)

~ watching

~ giggling

~ napping

~ loving

~ reading over what brings joy to other people, and the realization that I’m smiling.

Thanks for this post SpitFire. It's come at a great time.
I think this place and the people here would have to be on the top of my list.
Loving and being loved.
Family (usually!)
Spending time with friends doing nothing.
My two beautiful puppies, Ralph and Lucy.
Writing
Drawing
Listening to music.
Sunshine, rain, snow.
The beach at sunrise and the mountains at sunset. (or vice versa if I'm on the other side of the country)

I could go on and on but I think I'll stop now.

Dee



I wish you every happiness and may you always have the best of the good things in life. a brand
