Things that Make Me Smile

I can’t help but smile at:

• the springtime exuberance of a robin’s song that boarders on the maniacal.

• big, gruff tattooed men cuddling babies.

• that first bitterly good taste of morning coffee

• the kindness of strangers

• hearing random giggles in the most unlikely of places like from the old man in the waiting room of the doctor’s office.

• polka dots

• a father fixing his little daughter’s ponytail.

• the end of a good read.

• fresh flowers

• driving through really big rain puddles…when your vehicle is already dirty.

• little kids tackling really big tasks.

“Whatcha doin’ Timmy?”

“I’m diggin’ a hole to China.”


• poodles named “Killer”

• making a really long putt on a green that looks like the mange of a dog.

• leveling up.

• thirty year old port

• the song you couldn’t get enough of in grade seven comes on the radio. Mine: “Jessie’s Girl” by Rick Springfield.

What makes you smile?
