June 27

It is Friday, and I am nosy.

Tell me something that instantly cheers you up.

For me it is a phone call from my sister, a visit from my friend C., listening to my children laugh, having the boy tell me a story about work or something funny, a card from a friend, an email saying “hey I’m thinking about you”, my cats doing something hilarious.

These are a few of my favorite things.

  1. Watching my Dh pull the girls in his lawnmower cart. I laughed so hard last night when he did this, I almost cried. I don’t think our girls will ever grow up, and neither will my Dh. But that’s ok.

  2. Things that cheer me up!!! Hmmmm!
    Hearing my grandchildren call my name.
    Hearing that Mockingbird outside my window.
    Spending time with my BF’s
    And right now hearing raindrops hit my roof.
    Having all my children within 30 miles of home.

  3. Things that cheer me up….
    **hearing my kids laughing and playing together and enjoying themselves
    **when hubby brings me home a special treat just because he loves me (a favorite candy or whatever)
    **checking my pregnancy calendar to see how my baby is developing and growing

  4. A song on the radio…one like “always something there to remind you” but there are others…oh and then there is the sound of pure laughter coming from my kids…that works too.

  5. Hearing my children laugh, looking at the sky at night, looking at trees and hearing the birds never fails to make me smile!

  6. Hmmmm…off the top of my head:

    When the hubby wrestles with the boys
    My teenagers’ sense of humour
    When someone remembers Jenna
    A clean kitchen
    A cat on my lap

  7. Hearing or seeing a cardinal nearby.

    My children laughing, that deep, giggly, happy laugh that they usually get when a friend is over or they’re watching a funny show.

    A phone call from a good close friend.

    A beautiful Texas sunset.

    Seeing a Mini Cooper on the road or seeing the reflection of my Mini Cooper in a window. ๐Ÿ™‚

    My cat Leo bumping his head against mine, it’s his “love pat”.

    Reading a verse in the Bible that is exactly what I needed to hear (God speak).

    Here’s a few things that I can think of. Enjoy this amazing day that He has made!

  8. The first time I heard the name “mama”.

    Countdown to move to California.

    Hearing my grandchildren say “I love you”.

    A phone call from a family member,especially my sisters.

    My hubby telling me I am just as beautiful to him as I was the day we married(35 years ago June 30th)He is much older now and I think blind in one eye and can’t see well out of the other!lol

    Thinking of days gone by when you were a toddler and whenever I had you out anywhere people thought you were mine. I didn’t tell them any different.

    A nice hot cup of tea.

  9. My oldest telling me she had a ‘good day.’
    My youngest giving me that ‘evil grin.’
    My son – smiling at me and giving me a hug.

    My Hunkahubby.

    And a kitty that jumps on my lap without prompting – and purrs.

  10. Mail! I love mail, fun mail that is. Have you heard of swap-bot dot com? It’s a neat place, with all kinds of swappy things going on ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. A happy baby, sitting around the dinner table telling stories long after the meal is over, Hubs walking in the door after a long week on the road, my girl singing, flowers, an old couple holding hands……

  12. What cheers me up? When my husband calls and says “Did you know that I?” and then I finish his sentence with “love you!”. I used to say that all the time to my children as they grew up and now that has taken on a special meaning because it is repeated back to me.

    Another thing that cheers me up is a simple comment that my dinner or dessert is good and tasty. They know I love to cook. Do these efforts seem less when I enjoy them? Sometimes I’m in the kitchen for hours and my back hurts, but they don’t know this. When food is made and dinner is on the table. They eat. They go for seconds. They eat. I wonder if it’s good to them, or is it just okay?

  13. Cat, I am so with you. I don’t think either of my men realize how much I put into cooking and when they aren’t thankful, or even say they like it, it makes me not want to do it anymore.
