Angel..Happy Things...and Dad...


someone calling to check on you when you're sick
porch swings
garage sales
listening to music so beautiful that it makes you cry
always having something to look forward to--love, life, work, happiness
reading a favorite magazine
playing favorite music and dancing wildly in the living room (for the magpies fairies...you know who you are)
baby bootees
kids making their own valentines
meeting eyes
the cat acting foolish
effervescence
walking into your dreams and coming out a new person
wondering what it would be like to be rich and taken care of
a real expedition with candles, music, blankets, pillows, champagne,cold oysters, chocolate truffles, St.Andre cheese, and cold lobster meat
cash refunds
stubborn spider plants
the lonely sound of a train horn
Mighty Mouse
calla lillies

Good morning, Vicci! I'm always so glad when you've posted your Friday happy~things. Your lists give me time to reflect on those things you've listed as well as the many blessings that come to mind while I'm reading. I always have a smile on my face when I'm finished!

Love "walking into your dreams and coming out a new person"! And Mighty Mouse!!! My crush when I was 5! (...blush...)

I hope your father gets a clean bill of health and that you all enjoy your outing together. He sounds like such a wonderful, joyful person! Probably where his daughter gets HER zest for life!

I just love your Friday lists Vic!
You make me stop and smell the roses everytime. Just when I feel sorry for myself that I am busy or what have you, you step in to remind me to look around.

I love YOU my sweet cousin, and I love your dad (Uncle Bruce) so much too! In fact I was just journaling about him with the photo journal I'm doing.

Aw, your angel is so pretty & pure looking. Good to have around! i hope all went well with your Dad's visit to the doc. He must be so proud of you guys... he did a mighty-fine job!
Love your list this week ;) especially 'kids making valetines, porch swings & listening to music so beautiful it makes you cry.'
Thanks for bringing back some great memories:) I saw Ray Charles in Chicago & although I didn't 'bawl' the tears just ran down my cheeks.
