Simple pleasures

I've been trying lately to appreciate the little things in life. The winters here can be very hard. Even though it is staying light longer, February is always difficult because you are so ready for it to warm up, but you know that it will be realistically be about 2 months before that happens. But, even with the cold, wet weather, there are so many things to be thankful for. Of course, I'm always thankful for the big things like Darby, family, friends, health, financial stability, etc. But it also helps to think of all of the little things that bring me joy. Here are a few that I've been thankful for recently:
  • A steaming cup of coffee in the morning
  • Waking up and thinking that your alarm didn't go off and then remembering that it's Saturday
  • Getting a card in the mail
  • The sun coming through my office window in the afternoon
  • The smell of bread dough
  • Surprise coupons that print at the register
  • Turning on the TV and happening to catch a favorite movie
  • Someone bringing homemade goodies to work
What are the little things that make you happy?

Hugging Gus when I get home from work. His fur is so soft.
