Why being alive is good!

I am sure you all have about a hundred a piece, so let's pool them and remember what rocks about being alive.

I'll start:

- Tomorrow teaching begins again, having had a nice restful half term: and I am actually looking forward to seeing the kids again. Even the really bratty class!
- I went for a lovely walk today. It was chilly and windy but sunny too. I went where I hadn't been before so it was all new to me and really beautiful. Nature has a knack of being beautiful.

Anyway, I am full of the joys of living and I hope you will share some of yours too and let's all celebrate!

My son, seeing him smile, cappuccino, good books, friends, love, love, love and the summertime, music, music, music, writing and reading, really good movies and Perry's Vanilla Piece of Cake ice cream. OH! and a well cooked meal, especially when you are not the cook!

Keep 'em coming!

It's the little things isn't it that can give so much pleasure. I notice no one has mentioned money yet! Small things like someone's smile or a piece of music. Makes me think of this quote:

"Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art, like the universe itself (for God did not need to create). It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival."

--C.S. Lewis quotes (British scholar and novelist. 1898-1963)

the ocean, the smell(and the sound ) of rain, my husbands arms around me, my kids and the way they make me laugh and make me feel so complete, music, special friends, my dogs, good food, a long drive, the way the sun feels on my face in summer, helping others....that is just a few things.

Watching a beautiful sunset or sunrise.  Warm sand underfoot as you walk along a beach.  The thrill of having a big fish on your line. The scent of my man's skin, and the scent of a newborn baby.  Picking daisies and lavender.  Morning tea. Surprise emails or phone calls from family and friends.  Laughing until your mascara runs down your face and your sides hurt.  Music..oh yes..music.

Most of all?  Giving birth and watching that tiny miracle grow before your eyes..(don't blink)
Witnessing the birth of your grandchild..through happy thankful tears.

First and above all:
My kids.

A distant rest of the list:
Performing (whether it is music, or getting my backside handed to me in my duties as a professional wrestling manager)
My friends
My ability to write (which has deserted me recently... I must have irritated the Muse)
Physical contact (platonic or not) with someone you care about.
Being able to think up a list (lol)

In the wooden chair
Beside my window
I wear a face born in the falling rain

my kids and watch them grow, a long scenic drive, smell of the first rain, snowflakes on your face, walking on the sand barefoot. My family and friends.

my girls

my family

the way my four year old comes up to me and says "mom I love you"

the way sunsets can bring to mind great memories

a walk on the beach

a summer breeze

a winters storm

being reminded every day what I am thankful for and being thankful....

I'm waitin in the dark
I thought that you'd be here by now
Theres nothing but the rain

LOL, well, she is really beautiful, so I can understand Raphie's obsession. (Kate is a dark haired British beauty)
