    That is good news. I usually only find the missing glove, boot, etc, after I've thrown the other one away.

    It was way in the back of a junk drawer that I had checked many times!! Don't know how I missed it.

    I would still wear the hat, scarf, and the remaining glove because it was in my favorite deep, deep red color....and I look good in red!!!! I just couldn't bring myself to throw the rest of the set away!!

    Going on a bike ride with my daughter along a beautiful river. I haven't been on a bike in about 5 years maybe? There are lots of hills where I live and I am out of shape, not to mention 5 years older, but I made it! So much fun!

    My daughter, and the fact that, when I have any kind of trouble in my life, I know that I can always call her and she makes me feel better. She has this special ability to always be able to say the right thing.

    Reading the above simple things reminds me of so many more reasons to feel happy. Thanks!

    I have a few weeks where I can sleep as long as I want and have very few things scheduled. So I sleep until 8:00 AM or so and then usually take a walk in the nice morning weather. A simple thing that feels like a luxury!

    Breezy weather makes me happy.

    I was doing errands over the week-end and saw these kids sitting on the town green. I don't know who the kids are, I was just driving by and saw them. The explanation they gave about why they're there was simply "to make someone's day!"
