Ten Things That Make Me Smile

  1. Catching up with a friend over a cup of coffee
  2. Sleeping late on a Saturday morning
  3. Hearing those sweet little baby squeaks when I talk to my sister-in-law while she is holding Madeline
  4. Dark chocolate
  5. A beautiful sunrise or sunset
  6. A surprise
  7. When I get to help put Jacob to bed via the phone...especially prayer time
  8. An encouraging word
  9. The way I feel after a good run
  10. The way my parents talk to each other when I am on the phone with them
  11. A good inside joke
  12. The way a verse or a passage can jump off the page just when I need it
  13. My anticipation and excitement when I have a surprise planned for someone
  14. When a worship song expresses my heart more than my own words can
  15. A good book

Nice list! I relate to most of the things, except for dark chocolate. Sorry! But just a random and really non-constructive thought - how come there are fifteen things on a list of ten? :)

Snow- I got to 7 and then went blank. I didn't want to have a list of just 7 things so I decided to go for 10. That is when I changed the title from "Things That Make Me Smile" to "Ten Things That Make Me Smile". I did some other stuff and came back to my list. I ended up with 15 and forgot to change my title.

arissa mae- So sorry about that. Just to refresh your memory...you don't set an alarm, you sleep, and sleep, and sleep, and sleep...until you can't sleep any more or your bladder is about to explode! :)
