Misty rain falling on my face,

walking in the country at a slow leisurely pace.

My nephew Tyler saying "I love you Aunt Nee',

the smell of flowers in a nice bouquet.

The breath of a small little pup,

a sip of coffee from the mornings first cup.

The softness of a new borns derriere,

how my head feels after a fresh cut of my hair.

A slurpee brought home by the man of my dreams,

little children playing with their giggles and screams.

With no interruptions getting to read a great book,

sitting under a tree near a babbling brook.

These are things that make me feel good,

here is my list, now make one of your own, you should.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

just a few of the things that make me smile... hope that you have a list of your own....
