Sometimes life throws you for a loop. Sometimes it seems like it would be easier to just hide under the covers and pretend that the world has stopped moving. Sometimes it is hard to remember why to keep fighting. Of course my family and friends make that easier. A silly dance by Scout or a grin from Truman can turn the whole day around. But sometimes you just need to remember the little things that make life great. The random things that you love and make you happy…
Here are a few of mine.
The smell of a bonfire
The moment the lights go down before a performance
The song “Shoop”
Feeling chilly after a day in the sun
Peanut butter fudge ice cream
Watching someone open a gift you have given
Sitting on my parent’s porch
A perfect avocado
Books by Herman Wouk
Sand between my toes
Believing in Santa
Getting a card in the mail
Coffee with dessert at a fancy restaurant
Singing at the top of your lungs…with the windows rolled DOWN
There are many more and I could go on and on. And that is a good thing. It is a great thing. Life can throw a lot of garbage in your path but these random things are worth it all. I know it might sound cheesy but it helps.
So…your turn! Share some of the random things you love!
