On a positive note

The other night something amazing happened. I was walking to a friends house in the dark. Suddenly I was overwhelmed by this amazing aroma. It was springtime flowers. I couldn't see them, it was too dark, but boy howdy, I could smell them. I just wanted to stand on this dark street and smell the flowers. It was such an unexpected treat. So I decided to make a list of things that come to mind right now (the list would be much longer and maybe someday I'll add to it) of things that make me smile without even trying:
  • Kites- flying them or passing a park and watching families fly them together
  • Random pictures of Rob Pattinson that just pop up unexpectedly
  • The end of a really, really good book- so good that I hug the book when I close it
  • Rewarding myself with cheesecake after I've put in one load of laundry
  • Spending time with friends I hardly ever get to see
  • Eating Cheerios with fresh strawberries
  • Any mention of Disneyland
  • Seeing that someone wrote on my Facebook wall
  • Rain- for several reasons, right now mostly because it means it isn't snowing
  • Emails from the library saying the book I ordered is in
