Ok...I actually wrote these down Friday so I could post! So here is for Friday.

1. Ducks swimming in the canal. Do they realize how much pleasure they bring to all the people who watch them?

2. Smiles. During a stressful day of trying to doing things right, a smile sure perked me up!

3. Stairs. I have noticed a difference in the speed of taking the stairs. I don't use any to make a difference somewhere!

4. Patience. All my co-workers have so much patience to all my questions!!

5. Falling leaves. I absolutely LOVE to watch the leaves fall from the trees. It does something for me......very tranquil.

And for today:

1. Jhanai sweet smile and a good morning momma.
2. Extra sleep in time. Don't sleep in anymore and today I got to sleep in a little!
3. My sweet husband. He's worse at shopping than I am....and I love having him with me when we go.
4. My pets. They are all so loving and just want attention from us.
5. WEEKENDS. To be able to relax and do what ever we want to do w/out stress!

1. DH, he is the best and we had the greatest weekend ever! :love: It's not just the things he does for me or the things he buys, but appreciating the time we spend together.

2. Being fortunate to not only have one great love (DH) but to have had two!

3. My kids-they too are the best! I am so enjoying them while I can because I know one day soon they will be leaving the nest. And while I will miss them dearly I know I have to let them go.

4. Friends

5. Double A batteries!
