Talking What are your Seveep Tep?

What is a word that means the opposite of pet peeves??? I couldn't think of one, hence the stupid backward spelling.

But the "What peeves you?" post really got me thinking - in a very negative way. So, I decided it was time to positive things up a bit. Here's are some things that always make me happy. What are yours?

1. hearing my husband tell me he loves me.
2. hearing the pitter-patter of baby feet in my house
3. seeing my sons play with their baby sister
4. hearing the laughter of all of my kids
5. the quirky way ds2's mind works
6. the "I'm so proud of myself" expression on ds1's face
7. being in my hubby's arms
8. having dd1 tell me she loves me
9. having any of my kids tell me they love me
10. singing with daddy
11. in-laws that think of their step-grandkids as simply their grandkids.
12. having time to take a leisurely shower
13. seeing my best friend
14. beautiful sunsets
15. harvest moons
16. good old hymns

just knowing my DH is home
my four children
my 5 and 1/2 grandchildren and the special bond I have with my oldest grandson.
The feel of their little arms around my neck and their soft baby kisses and how sweet they smell
remembering my dad each time I see a humming bird
the way the air smells after a cleansing rain
my mother and my sister
the look of wonder on a small face
all our animal friends
beautiful trees and flowers
the warm suggly feeling of being able to stay n bed on a rainy day.
a lovely meal with all my family
being able to give to others without expecting anything back
all GOD'S children
comeing here to visit and share with all of you

Waking up in the morning to another day!
Dh
My boys
My 4 legged babies
Getting together with all of my family
Dreams about my mom
Snuggling under the covers in the winter and knowing it's my day off :o)
Hearing a song I listened to waaaay back when
Finding, forgotten money
Paying off a debt
Buying something
Helping when I can

Seeing "its", "it's", "your", and "you're" used correctly.

Having husband home, safe and sound
Enjoying my old deaf dog in her last days, and being amused by watching her daugher take care of her
My old house, in spite of swearing at her foibles
Living in small-town America .... after a lifetime on the road, I think I'm home now (but never say never or always)
Having a network of freinds and family that spans half the globe
The wonderful people of the Midwest
Presiding over my stove, with freinds nearby
Hubby presiding over the dining room table, with a group of multi-generational friends sitting around, having intellectual discussions
Tuesday and Friday afternoons, reading to friends and sipping ice cold chardonnay
Friday at 5, at "a place where everyone knows your name, and they're always glad you came"
Having total strangers approach me at the grocery store and tell me they love my columns (hey, big fish, small pond ... after a life time of miniscule fish, enormous pond, it's nice)
And, right now, hearing the church bells tell me it is 8 a.m. They'll tell me it is noon, and again 6 p.m. They'll tell me when someone dies, and when someone marries.

There are advantages to being middle aged, and body aside (mine's working very well, thank you, but it sure as hades isn't 30) some of these things only come with time.

You all are right on when it comes to the good things in life..I just have to add one more thing. Still having my DH with me after loving him for most of my life. 50 1/2 years of marriage and knowing that I (we) did at the young age of 16 and he was 19. Thanks to Uncle Sam it took us 5 years before we did get married.
Marge~Dove 71 and DH 74

I love the positive things in life..thank you for starting this thread.

Hearing 3 simple words from my loved ones, "I Love You"!

all my loved ones and each moment I get to spend with them

Childrens laughter and/or the smile on a childs face.....that always brings a smile to my face.

Knowing my prayers are heard and that my many thanks for the day are accounted for.

That special nook made especially for me thats between my hubbies chest and armpit where my head nestles in perfectly

A clear sky full of stars on a cool night....in the wee hours of the night when the streets are quiet...now thats peaceful.

that first snowfall when its not been disturbed

The smell of freshly laundered bedclothes

Dreaming about loved ones that have passed.....especially when we can share a hug and kiss and I remember it when i awake


My cats purr when I'm trying to go to sleep......hubby hates it and boots her off the bed.....I call him "the cat hater"....really he loves her but he's a light sleeper. I think its like a laullaby.

Watching an elderly couple dance..........their smiles bring tears to my eyes everytime

Actually, I love the feeling I get when I'm holding my GF in my arms watching her sleep - - and her reaction when I surprise her with flowers for no reason.

... and Whale Burgers with Panda Bear fries

Marge, you give me so much inspiration, I think that I told you before that I was 16 and my husband was 21 when we got married. I was 14 and he 19 when we started dating.
Noone believed that we would last, now 20 years later, of course, his mother said, I always knew you would

I pray everyday for the time that you have had with your hubby to have with mine!! God bless you both!!
