Thirty-eight things I love -

The smell of coffee in the morning, when I first wake 
Taking that first sip I’ve been waiting to take 
The sound of my children giggling in their rooms at night  
Knowing my children are the best of friends for life
Romantic comedies 
Stories with happy endings
Reading poems which are profound, and actually comprehending 
The sound of an acoustic guitar with someone singing along
The hope of someday playing too, and singing my own song   
Watching my kids catch fireflies, name them and let them go 
Sunsets which paint the sky with a glorious crimson glow 
Meeting new people and getting to know them over time
Chatting with friends, just laughing and talking about life 
Friends that are solid, no matter what it takes
Being forgiven for all the mistakes I make 
Being understood when I don’t know what to say
Cooking chili on a cold snowy day
The sounds of the kukooburra 
The sound of the loon  
Candles - flickering flame, the scent, the ambiance in the room
The patterns that frost makes when it forms on winter windows
Hearing stories about every day heroes 
Standing on a beach and watching the ocean dance 
Swimming in, and jumping waves as they’re heading toward land
Powerful thunderstorms when no damage is done
Friends who make me feel like I’m their only one  
Nice people
Humble people
People who care
Back rubs
Neck rubs
Someone brushing my hair 
Getting flowers or a gift for absolutely no reason  
Going apple picking, when apples are in season 
Walking alone in the evenings with my headphones on
Making love late at night, snuggling at dawn
The hope that someday I’ll find what I’ve been waiting for
Remembering everything I have to be thankful for

    Oooh, this is a very lovely positive way to end the day. Thanks! I think I'll work on that last line as I nod off. Enjoyed reading your words today.

    I love most on your list. Something captured my attention - the call of a Kookaburra. Where I currently live in a town out of Melbourne, I don't hear them anymore. Where I used to live a bit further out on the other side of Melbourne I heard them every morning and dusk. mmmmm I miss them

    I've never heard a real live kookaburra, I bet that would be amazing! I heard one online and it made me laugh.. and I love to laugh :) Makes me think of God's sense of humor when he created things for us to enjoy lol Thank you so much for your lovely comments, Thomas!

    Just feeling reflective, Andrea, but it might make a fun contest! Maybe I'll have to get another preferred membership so I can host one again. Thanks for stopping by :) Happy Birthday!!! :)

    Oh you're a witty girl Becca . Thanks for the smiles Becca. This piece has so much truth that I can certainly say of my own self. Like the back rub part...LOL. I posted a poem today, its a poem I wrote two years ago. I hope you enjoy reading it when ever you do get the chance to do so. Take care and hugs Becca. :)

    You got me laughing here, in a good way-- since I could definitely relate to a bunch of things here-- your list made me smile and reminded me to be thankful of what I have--thank you for that.... you remind us of the beautiful things in life, and these are not necessarily bought with money. Btw, speaking of a common thing-- yes, Jars of Clay has a new album, Inland-- it's out now. I have been listening to "Fall Asleep", can't get that out of my head. Check them out in Noisetrade too. ;)

    OH I'll have to find their album! thanks, Nikko. :) Oh and the 38 is random :) hugs

    btw, here I am just being curious, why only 38 things? I suppose that is a significant number for you...
  1. Date: 8/29/2013 5:50:00 AM

    You have surely engraved into my soul your list of happiness, as most of them are what I'm thankful for as well! My favorite line has to be, "Powerful thunderstorms when no damage is done" that is so me! But my absolute favorite has to do with my family, that is what I would put in my list, the love of my family and being together with everyone! This is a powerful write my friend! I truly loved reading this delightful and pleasurable poem this evening! What a brilliant piece, Great Work!!
