Falling in love.
Laughing so hard your face hurts.
A hot shower.
No lines at the Super Wal-Mart.
A special glance.
Getting mail.
Taking a drive on a pretty road.
Hearing your favorite song on the radio.
Lying in bed listening to the rain outside.
Hot towels out of the dryer.
Finding the sweater you want is on sale for half price.
A bubble bath.
The beach.
Laughing at yourself.
Laughing for no reason at all.
Having someone tell you that you're beautiful.
Playing with a new puppy.
Sweet dreams.
Swinging on swings.
Song lyrics printed inside your new CD so you can sing along without feeling like a dummy.
Making eye contact with a cute stranger.
Making chocolate chip cookies!:cookie:
Seeing smiles and hearing laughter...
Getting out of bed every morning and thanking God for another beautiful day.
Watching the sunrise.

Okay ladies feel free to add to the list. :)

Nuzzling your nose into soft, sweet smelling baby's hair
Listening to a child laugh
Rocking a baby to sleep
Hearing the birds sing on a warm spring morning
Feeling a kitten purr while you stroke its soft fur

Taking your child home from a stay in ICU and knowing that they are going to live.
The smell outside of a recent rainfall in the middle of summer.
The first warm day of summer when you can open all the windows and have a fresh breeze.
A boquet of flowers that your child and the neighbors kids spent the time to pick for you.
Fresh strawberries off the vine warmed by the sun.
Fresh tomatoes off the vine.
The smell of a peppermint candle. * I fell in love with this scent almost 8 years ago. My Dad had just passed away unexpetcedly and I had to go to the Dry Cleaners to pick up my Moms Funeral Day outifit. I was heartbroken and depressed and missing my Daddy. I walked in and knew my Dad was there with me telling me life goes on and I had to be strong for my family. I felt relaxed and happy for the first time since he had died. It is morbid to still love that scent but it is my Daddy there with me when I smell it.

A thunderstorm when I have nothing I need to do except pile up on the couch and enjoy...

I love these Cristi

Chocolate milkshake.

A good conversation.

Finding a $20 bill in your coat from last winter.

Midnight phone calls that last for hours.

Running through sprinklers.

Laughing at an inside joke.

Accidentally overhearing someone say something nice about you.

Waking up and realizing you still have a few hours left to sleep.

Your first kiss.

Making new friends or spending time with old ones.

Late night talks with your someone that keep you from sleeping.

Having someone play with your hair.

Hot chocolate.

Road trips with friends.

Watching a good movie cuddled up on a couch with someone you love.

Getting butterflies in your stomach every time you see that one person.

Discovering that love is unconditional and stronger than time.

Riding the best roller coasters over and over.

Hugging the person you love.

Watching the expression someone's face as they open a much-desired present from you.

Watching the sunrise.

Seeing a baby's hand in yours.

Listening to the crickets and looking at the stars on a warm summer night.

Laying under a tree with someone you love while a warm breeze is blowing.

Laying out in the sun and feeling the warmth.

Hearing my kids say "I Love You Mom"

These are all EXCELLENT ladies! I love them all. :)

Daphne, I don't think that is morbid at all. I think it is sweet and like you said it's like your father is always there.

Sherry. that one should have been at the top of my list! :)
