I agree with all of you..
I love Nature, animals, and so many other things in life.

May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

Walk towards the Sunshine and the Shadows will fall behind you!

I will have to duplicate:

Just bathed baby

Puppy Breath

I love my 800-1000 count sheets after a shower and I'm freezing and crawl in my bed with my big white down comforter and my dog jumps in and curls up beside me and keeps me warm

And my nephew (35 years old now) STILL loves to feel earlobes - and ONLY because he's my nephew I don't beat the daylights out of him when he feels mine!!!!!!!!!!!

And I love that first sip of perfectly made coffee in the morning.

I love the fact that my husband still makes my breath catch when he walks in a room. (I know emotional love is supposed to be a no no but I can't help it!)

...and baby's toes - baby's toes simply amaze me. I could play with their little toes and hold their little feet all day.

I love our small home and everything in it( and outside of it in the garden. )I love caring for the garden.
I love living in this cul de sac. We have such wonderful friends and neighbours. I love the countryside where we live and the Churches in which we worship and the opportunity to do so freely.

I love discusscooking.com. Twice as filling as myspace.com with only a fraction of the drama

How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

A few things I love. Mostly in broad terms, as to keep the list from being to long.

Everything in Nature! The Sights (sunrise/sunsets/clouds) The Sounds (coyotes howling/Call of the Wild geese/bird songs) The Smells (Honeysuckle/fresh plowed dirt/flowers) The Feelings (cool breezes/warm sunshine/soft rain. The Taste(wild blackberries/fresh pecans/wild plums) etc.

Beautiful Music shared with someone who understands. (Dvorak’s New World Symphony/Aaron Copeland’s Appalachian Spring and many, many more.)

“Giving” in all areas and aspects of life… as opposed to “taking”

Being really and truly understood.

Soft kisses/Butterfly kisses (that always brings a smile, a giggle or laughter!)

The miracle of new life. Kittens, puppies, trees budding, wild flowers in the spring and babies. (Wow! Babies)

Old Dogs(that always seem to love me unconditionally)

Children in general (little girls giggling/the curiosity of little boys.


A Mississippi Thunderstorm when it has been so hot and dry.. The dark clouds, thunder, lightning, wind, and finally the rain. The fresh, cool aftermath.

Beautiful memories of people, places and things.

True friendship!

Family Heirlooms, and keepsakes…

There is much more, but I suppose I have had my turn.
There is only one Quality worse than Hardness of Heart, and that is Softness of Head.

I love working with my hands. I've been sewing for almost 20 years, quilting for almost 10, and doing needlepoint and cross-stitch sometime in between, and I love all of those things. My aunt just recently got me into beading, and it's kinda fun to make quick necklaces and bracelets for friends and family.
And of course, I really love baking, too.
Growing up, I loved playing the piano and singing. Now, as a mom, I only sing in church unless at home I'm singing songs for the kids, and I kind of miss that. Oh well, I still love my kids. :)

I being at the seaside, looking at the white sails gliding over the water, inhaling chestful of the salty air, imagining all the places I haven't seen that may lay across at the other end of the water.

I the sunset sky, the magical kaleidoscope of colours and being mesmerized by them.

I daydreaming, close my eyes and time and place travel in my fancy just as I please, and detach myself from reality if only for a while.

I the warm fuzzy feeling I get when my little buddy, a friendly stray cat who lives not far from our house, sees me and come running towards me, and cuddles happily with me purring loudly.

I listening to the sound of rain while I am cozy at home, especially at night

I it when a rare opportunity arises that I hear a favourite music (preferably loud), there is enough space(not possible at current home) and no one else is around(not possible at the gym), so I can shake my booty to my heart's content.

Well, I could go on and on, but let's say enough for now!!

I agree. It's even better when something you did is what made them giggle.
