I asked my DH what made him smile.. he said 'you'.. and that made me smile.

I smile when a young man holds the door open for a lady.

Making eye contact with people makes me smile.

Children who say "please", "thank you" and "pardon me".

A nice shower after a hard work out. Ahhhhhhh...

Thanks for the reminder about young men opening doors. I have 2 teen sons whom we have been teaching this simple manner for years and I always smile within when I see them without a prod or another young man open the door or pick up their pace to assist a woman.

So many things make me smile. My family, cards from friends, going to San Francisco to shop, finding an object that works perfect in an art project I am working on. Life makes me smile.

Hugs, Stormy
God Bless

What makes me smile?

My husband of 15 years , my son who is 12 , my puppy 7 month old Happy (yorkie/chi) our jack russell terrier dogs Sammy & Daisy when they are playing. Our new (dream) log home. A nice warm day 4 wheeling with friends to the river! all the laundry caught up! seeing an old friend! and ditto on the clean house! A great chick flick movie. .... I could go on and on...
Blessings to all,

A lot of different things put a smile on my face....

My daughter's giggles and some of the things that she may say.
My husband doing something out of the ordinary to cheer me up.
A good book that I have been longing for that is nowin my hands!
First day of school - for me!! - every semester
The day I found out I was pregnant with my second child (was TTC'ing for like 2 years before it happened!)
When my daughter and husband says "I love you"
Rain and thunderstorms

My 2 chihuahuas make me smile.

My granddaughter makes me smile. (Last night she literally screamed with joy at the very sight of the ice cream truck!)

DH makes me smile.

The thought of my driver racing makes me smile.

Roses make me smile.

Food makes me smile.

Good grades make me smile.

Getting packages makes me smile.

Cooking makes me smile.

There are so many things that make me smile, that I lose count.

I have to smile when my "independent" ds, ddil, dgd who live next dr, seem to be over at our house more than their own.
I have to smile after ever hurricane that goes through our town that the only thing they do to our place is rearrange my landscape.

I have to smile that dgd & I wait patiently while her dear blankie is in the
(we have to check on it often to make sure it's ok) only GiGi can do it.

That when she see my truck home on Fridays she knows that it's "our day" refuses to go to daycare, & poor ddil has to come over & ask every Friday-though dgd who's almost 3 & I tell her, Friday is our day, even if I'm going out of town, she goes with us (unless of course it's a private weekend for dh & I)

And my biggest smile is when the the dr says tha dh pressure in his chest is due to stress, coming from a family with heart disease, he tried to fight me on eating lowfat, no fried foods (or quite spraringly) I come from one too, & decided long ago that I never wanted to go through what my parents & dgp went through.
And the most conceited thing I smile about is that I have to show my dreaded driver lic. to prove how old I am.
Whether it is art, gardening or a memory, create, create, create. This is not a dress rehearsal, enjoy, smile, love and forgive, life is just that short.

GiGi....Is that what your GD calls you? How sweet!

My DD calls my mother "Grabdi" right now because she cant say Grandma yet.

My son called her "Gaggaw" for the longest time.

Believe me, NOBODY does it better than Grandma....not even Mom sometimes! Just ask my kids!!

These past couple of posts have made me smile.

We took our DGD back to Texas Friday. She's 23 months old today. While we were there the ice cream truck came. My DGD nearly jumped out of my skin with excitement when she heard the music! Then, I had to keep up with her because she wanted to run updtairs into her apartment to tell her new baby brother about the ice cream truck! As we waited patiently for it to arrive, my DH held the newborn. Then, as the truck was pulling up, DH was beaming from ear to eat while he held the baby in one arm and held DHD in the other. At that moment, I would have given anything to have a camera on me. Here it is almost 3 days later and I'm still smiling.
