    Where the Sakura grows
    Hi :D

    Things that we sometime take for granted are usually the simple things in life. If you stop and think about things that jus put a smile on your face, you start to appreciate them more.

    I'll start off :)

    - MORNING - Of all the words in the English dictionary, I find saying 'morning' to someone is the most uplfiting word to start a day. It just sounds so cheerful that when I say, 'morning', when I pass someone I always have a big cheerful smile on my face. If I can, I'd say MORNING to everyone all day. I've actually have as a kid, and people do give me weird stares XD

    - Clothes out of the dryer - As a kid, I love the feel, warmth and smell of warm laundry. There's something comforting when you just put on a warm sweater right out of the dryer or wrapping yourself in a warm blanket.

    - Children giggling - They say laughter is contageous, I find this especially true when it's coming from children. Their laughters are full of glee and uncontrollable happiness. When children laugh, there's something melodic about it, that I can't help but smile.

    I'd love to hear what makes you smile, it might be something that makes me smile too :)

    There's one sure thing that puts the biggest of a smile on my face and completely lifts away any worries or troubles and that is seeing my two and a half year old granddaughter.
    Nothing stops her from being a total bundle of fun.
    She's just one happy little Angel who makes her 'Gan-Gan' the biggest fella in the world. :)
     
  3. A lot of things lift my heart, Roze.

    Laughing babies are still amongst the best, to me.

    When my daughter reaches out to me for me to pick her up and she hugs me or when she tries to fiddle with my goatee or beard. Kids <3
     
  5. Yeah, kids; I think they're going to pan out to be pretty close to #1 on most people's list. :)

    Next to Guinness, perhaps. :eek: :D

    mmmmm Guinness....mmmm....beeeeer.

    For me a lot of things...including a good craft ale.

    Warm rain on a cool spring day. When its grey in the sky, but all of the plants are glowing, vibrant with joy and appreciation for the rain.

    and BBQ.

    Hmm never really thought of this, off the top of my head...

    -seeing my baby niece smile
    -puppies/kittens
    -studying my butt off and getting a good grade
    -hot shower when I'm tired/beat
    -looking out into the ocean

    I'm probably missing a few lol, there's quite a few things that make me smile.

    It gets me every sing time:

    When a baby takes his/her first steps and falls right on their bottom.

    Nothing beats it.

    Sleeping in - especially if I get to sleep in with my wonderful boyfriend beside me!

    Cooking big dinners with my friends when we all get together.

    And when the weather is nice enough to drive around with my sunroof open, windows down, AC off.

    Waking up in the morning, being well rested and with sunshine seeping through my window. I know then that I've gotten out of bed on the right side :)
