What makes you happy?  What brings a smile to your face?  What fills your heart to overflowing?
For me, it is the simple things in life~my grands telling me how much they love me and how thankful they are for the quilts I've made for them.  It is a bright blue sky that promises spring is right around the corner.  It is the love of a good man who has been by my side for some thirty-seven years now-simply amazing!
It is the love of an old companion dog and his faithfulness to me; the lick of a young pup who reminds me what is was like to have so much energy. It is the faithful friends who love me just as I am and who encourage me daily by their writings and blogs. It is seeing an Elk, Eagle, Moose, Bear and other wildlife up close.  It is the majesty of the Rockies that reminds me of my Creator's handiwork, the blessing of seeing their splendor whenever I am driving. 
What makes me happy?  You, of course, dear friends!
Blessings on your day today; don't forget to stop and give thanks.
Hugs, Noreen


  1. Oh my ... I fear my list would be too long to post here. But I'm with you: all things grandchild ranks right up there at the top! So does morning coffee, sunrises, new-fallen snow, finished ironing.


  2. My Grands...the unconditional love they give me (o:
    Nature, animals, friends, family (o:
    unexpected acts of kindness..
    So you should have given a link to the discussion about men and romance and all that jazz. Should have been interesting.

  3. At the moments of sadness I always try to remember how blessed I am in my life and focus on what I have and not what I don't...What makes me smile? Friends, family, and fluffy pups! :-)

  4. Hi Noreen, I like your list and would have a long one too. I would begin with my husband and sons, flowers, birds and knowing that Jesus loves me, and could go on from there.
