10 "Mundane" things that made me smile this morning

I woke up this morning and after my initial thought of "OMG, do I have to wake up now!" came the thought "I love smelling my coffee when I wake up." As the morning progressed I found myself focusing happily on small mundane details.

I'm not usually a negative person, but things have been tough lately and sometimes it's been hard to find a reason to smile. A day when the little things give me a smile, is always a good day.

  1. The smell of fresh brewed coffee

  2. An empty sink with no dirty dishes waiting

  3. Only one load of laundry to get done

  4. Hearing the sleepy 'Good Morning Mommy' from my babies

  5. Listening to Alex and Liberty chat, with no arguing, through breakfast

  6. Being able to open up the front door as soon as I wake up...fresh air!!

  7. 'Monkey Baby' hug

  8. Bean watching one of my favorite 'Little Bear' episode (yea, I'm a dork)

  9. Slipping easily into my favorite jeans again

  10. Feeling happy and content

I hope your Friday is a good one :-D

I think if it weren't for those little things, we would never make it through the day. I'm glad you were able to enjoy them!
Oh and I like Little Bear too. :)
