The teeny tiny things

I can't find a recent thread that we can share the small things that make us happy so hopefully you will join me in this one

I saw my first lamb of the year yesterday. It made me happy all day

Share your daily moments of happiness ...

Nice thread MintyDoris

One small thing that makes me Happy is My Peace of Mind. I know it stems from my being Honest and not being able to lie to save my life

I never knew until recent times how many actually people lie to cover their asses and I am thankful I was raised better than that/them.

That is one thing that makes me Happy

I'm happiest when the people close to me are happy. I had a housemate who always got stressed at work. So to surprise her, from time to time I'd leave small chocolate bars in random places so they'd show up unexpectedly. She'd always text saying it made her day even if I was a big messer!

I love when I'm home and the dog runs to the car to welcome me back.

Friday evenings. Maximum amount of time off to relax and meet friends before the start of another week.

I can just imagine. Hope you remember what sleep feels like . Before you know it she'll be crawling around and there'll be no stopping her. The cousin's twins are just a little older. The little girl laughs at the 'funny faces' routine but the little boy is never impressed. Can't please some folks, haha!

This may sound crazy-but something as simple as hearing a song on the radio for the first time,and knowing it's gonna be a classic-I love that feeling.

I'm lucky in that I get indescribable amounts of joy from my daughter who is almost three

Apart from that, I have a very big garden with lots of bushes and trees so I love hearing the birdsong first thing in the morning.

Other little things that make me happy include:

When I begin reading a book and realise that I'm really going to love it. Sometimes it takes two or three chapters, other times it's almost instant. When I first read Jonathon Strange and Mr. Norrell I got the feeling before the end of the first page.

Sitting in complete peace and meditating. It's a fantasticaly liberating experience.

Achieving a goal I set out to achieve, even if it's only small, doesn't have to be big.

Listening to a very interesting radio show such as In our Time on BBC Radio 4.
