  1. Hi Bella,
    What a fun list! (I’m liking especially the idea of standing under that big oak, and looking up!)

    I’ll add:
    enjoying a cup of coffee and watching the sun rise in the morning
    a big juicy blackberry, fresh from the bush
    an unexpected letter in the mail
    chocolate milk

  2. Bella,
    I love your dear little boots–and your list. It reminds me of the lyrics from the Sound of Music song, “My Favorite Things.”Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens. Fine copper kettles and warm woolen mittens.” And on we go. I have a very long list of all the things that bring me joy, simple things. But to keep this short, I will list 5 things, just for today.

    The enormous bald eagle who graced our beach.
    Warm pjs. (It’s freezing here and it’s July. Geez!)
    Pale pink roses on the vine in the yard
    Morning kisses from my husband.
    Taking my college-aged daughter out to pizza for lunch. Yum.

    Life is good. Awake is good! En-Joy your day!
