    I agree with you. Being able to relax yourself to accept kindnesses from others feels good. Sometimes it requires taking a deep breath to do it, but it is really worth it, and it feels good. It's OK to be on the receiving end sometimes. It's a learned skill!

    Did you have a birthday recently? If so, Happy Birthday! I am always so touched when someone does something like that for me...

    Getting home after a 7 day road trip. I love going on the road, but love being home, especially in the beautiful spring weather we are having!

    My dog makes me happy. The soft warm fur, his closeness, his personality and the doggy smell of him all make me happy.

    And dreaming of living near a beach someday.

    My birthday is tomorrow. But the last two years, my friend has given my a birthday cake at our spring picnic we have been having the day before Easter.


    I love home too.
    I love my girlfriends, moms and little children.

    Watching little kids as they go down the street. They don't just walk.....they hippity-hop, jump, skip....usually when they are with their mothers. Cracks me up!
