Folks .... yes, it's true that we are each without a special someone ... Nevertheless, there are things in the world that make us feel good, whether they're relaxing, or exhilirating, make us feel content or alive, give us a warm feeling inside or dizzy with some kind of rush ... Here are some of mine ... What are some of of yours? .....

- good dramatic movie, new or old
- crisp autumn morning
- nice sermon that makes you think
- hot tea & a glazed donut (sorry, not a coffee drinker)
- slow dancing
- intense workout
- NFL games
- moist kiss (can I say that here?)
- snow day
- hot pizza
- hugs
- running into an old friend\
- family memories
- classic novel
- the newspaper
- good glass of wine

What DOESN'T make me smile is the way the forum stream view collapses posts.

Jean's post read "buttered popcorn--real butterlog fires on a cold night" I was going nuts (no comments from the peanut gallery regarding the length (or lack thereof) of the trip!) trying to figure out what a "butterlog fire" is! laughing laughing laughing laughing

A great comedy (movie or sitcom)
The voice of someone special on the phone
An unexpected visit from a friend
A thunderstorm and the trees when they are singing a song with the wind
A letter or card in the mail
My children and many children
Laughter
Music
The first sip of a cold Diet Coke on a hot day
The birdsong that wakes me

For your positive thread Richard and hope for much happiness in your life.

Watching Dads interact with their children
Seeing a rainbow in the sky (I mentally start singing Rainbow Connection)
The first few bars of a familiar old song on the radio
Watching a Baptism at Mass

The touch of my daughter when she pats my shoulders
Catching sight of a wild animal in the woods
Remembering favorite lines from a movie
Watching kids on a swingset

Seeing old people get excited and animated in discussion
Tasting the first bite of a warm brownie and cold ice cream
Watching kids climb & roll down a sand dune
The feel of a warm car seat on a cold day

Listening to the people in Church prepare the sanctuary for liturgy
Singing Alleluia for the first time at Easter Vigil
Seeing a new citizen say the pledge of allegiance
Tasting crisp bacon, eggs, and hash browns

Receiving a message from a friend on CM
Giving hugs to my grand kids
Watching people reunite at the airport, bus, or train station
Crocus poking through the new snow

Observing the kindness of people acting out of the goodness in their hearts
Feeling the sincerity of an embrace
Hearing the voice of a dear friend
Knowing I am loved

Blue skies
Little kids
Mavis Staples singing Hard Times Come Again No More
Messages in my CM inbox.

A baby's innocent smile
A rainbow
An elderly couple holding hands and helping each other walk
My 86 year old mother's Irish wit
My birthday
God's unconditional love for me and all
The very idea that God could have created me as a person instead of a fly or spider or whatever(actually that will make me smile through eternity)
