    When my children and/or grandchildren express their own happiness in some way, I am filled with happiness too.

    My loving husband. He is with me through whatever happens. We support each other and all those we love. This synergy is a powerful force. It serves us well!

    Seeing my friends being happy and well after a relaxing and recovering break from all routines; the delight when perceiving the roses and other beautiful flowers and the delicate fragrance they gently release into the world; when listening to music played or sung together inspired by the heart.

    A finished project in the workshop, harvest time in the vegetable garden, Bella’s (my Kelpie dog) welcome home, realizations of the Divine (which are all of the foregoing).

    The presence of my mom, my dog, and my cat bring about a beaming smile for me.

    So many things make me smile. Two days a week, I’m a chauffeur. I mostly work for very wealthy people. And sometimes I’m invisible to them. Yesterday, while waiting for clients, a small child (maybe 5 or 6), just getting home from school, saw me standing there, and gave me a little smile and a wave while going into her house. A few minutes later, she came outside, went to a nearby flower bed, picked a teeny tiny daisy, and gave it to me. Made my day and makes me smile now.

    Guaranteed smile maker for me is my beloved dog greeting at the door when I return as though I have been gone for a long time.

    Being around the people I love. When everyone is comfortable being themselves and theres a genuine feel good vibe.

    Seeing friends and loved ones in real life from whom I’ve been separated by time, distance, and the pandemic for years.

    Hearing something good has happened for one of my children or my husband.

    Our cat being goofy and playful. Right now he’s chasing his tail so he has brought a smile to my face.

    Sunshine! Right now my part of the world has an atmospheric river dumping a lot of rain. We have a break right now as I type this but the grey clouds overhead remind me the forecast says heavy rain for a few more days. I’ve lived in rainy western Washington for 10 years after spending my whole life in eastern Washington/north Idaho where we had more sunny days.

    Walking to the bay that isn’t far from our house and spotting a seal in the water. It doesn’t happen often so it’s always a treat.

    Serendipitous incidents in nature: witnessing dew buds on morning grass; a dragon fly who let me gaze at her iridescence splendor for what felt like two glorious moments; beautiful sunsets; quiet sunrises with bird song. People bring me smiles too. I’m finding more moments of healing via Nature.

    My kids, a deep blue sky, the bright colors of food on my dinner plate, a really good cup of coffee, watching moms and dads play with their young children, a favorite piece of music.

    A funny meme, a good joke, seeing my kids and grandkids and great grandkids, good news for anyone. And a negative COVID19 test! We were with friends one evening last week, and two came down with really serious cases of COVID. We all got tested and were negative!

    My sister that lives in California is here for the month with her 4 1/2 year old son. Because of covid, we hadn’t seen each other in person for over two years. They surprised me at work the other day, and we all gathered at our parents’ last night for a birthday dinner for my brother. Having us all together sharing food, stories, hugs and laughter has me beaming right now. I can’t wait to have them stay with us next week.

    My family gathered. A gorgeous day at the beach; a wonderful sunset. This funny little chipmunk that comes to hang out on my deck. Great music.

    Other people’s smiles…it means we have connected in some way.
    No words necessary.
    Or connecting with one of the earth’s creatures.
    My heart leaps with joy making my lips curl in an upward arc.

    Seeing the sun rise every day at my favorite place, 10 minutes walk from my house, gives me a beaming smile.
    I placed a picture of my favorite place in the gratitude-lounge.🌞
