There are things, big things, to be thankful for, of course, like good health, a husband who makes my heart soar, a family that has my back, friends who have stayed through thick and thin and a dog who thinks I am the entire world. These are the things to give thanks for.
But there are the other things, the little things, the quirky things that can make your heart leap as you say a silent thank you to God or the universe.
Here are some of the small things, the lovely things, the wondrous things that have made me thankful. These moments are the things I try to remember when I forget just how amazing life is.
(Yes, this is our puppy Emma who thinks she is hidden)
The Happy Things1. Getting into a bed freshly made with sheets straight from the dryer
2. Hot apple pie topped with a slice of Beecher's white cheddar (Is this just a New England thing?)
3. Finding the PERFECT thing on Etsy.com. Seriously, how can you not love this?
4. The way my husband smiles at me and hums when he likes the dinner I've prepared
5. Settling in to enjoy the movie trailers and hearing the dialogue of the people behind me ("Oh! I want to see that. Do you want to see that?")
