    I did years ago, I think I need to go over and brag about my boy pretty soon. LOL Seriously though, Kudo brings me SO so much happiness.. and another favorite thing he does to me, he'll just randomly walk up to me (wherever) and lick my leg/hand/whatever.. then just sit there like, "this MY mama". Melts me everytime. :kisser

    Happiness! I got my mom a cell phone and she used it for the first time today...to call me to complain...but she used it!!! (My mom has dementia so this is a big deal that she followed my instructions)

    What a great way to end the week!! (Especially she was in the ER on Monday)

    Stong, hot coffee first thing in the morning. I could post this every day.

    On my way to work this morning, I was stopped at a red light and a dragonfly landed on my driver's side rearview mirror and sat with me through the light. That made me smile. I love dragonflies.

    I'd say that qualifies as more than just a simple pleasure! Congratulations!
    I read somewhere someone saying they wish they could afford to be like those people who don't have to pay attention to the price rolling on the gas pump, so now every time I space out until I hear the click of a full tank, I count my blessings.

    The first day of school!
    When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "Happy." They told me I didn't understand the assignment. I told them they didn't understand life. - John Lennon

    Waking up to the smell of bacon in the morning.

    That doesn't happen anymore since I live alone and the bacon doesn't cook itself but when I still lived at home or when I used to go camping, waking up to smell bacon frying was one of the most wonderful things! Unless you got out to the kitchen and the bacon was all gone.
