things to be happy about

a while back i bought the book "14.000 things to be happy about" which i have read the first 15 pages of. some of the things the author has listed don´t comply to me, but here are my favorites from pages 1-10:

-waking up early and having breafast together outside
-tender, loving touches
-rearranging the apartment
-serendipitous plans
-the sensuality of a scalp rub
-watering your garden
-thought while ironing
-the little things in life that really make your day go right
-not worrying about having what everyone else has
-returning librarybooks
-rising early
-wild roses, blush pink and spicily fragrant in the cool of the night

i am hoping this book while boost to see the little things in life!
and i am sure this will trig me to write my own list and hopefully scrapbook it!

I love that book. I've had it since high school and it just sits on my shelf. You've inspired me to get it out again!!

That is one of my favorite books. I keep it on my desk at work and flip through it when the going gets rough. I can't tell you how many of those books I've given away.
