Thursday Thirteen #14 Things That Bring A Smile

Thirteen things that make me smile.

1. The Sonic commercials. I don't care which one it is --- those commercials always make me smile because they so silly, and true.
2. When my hubby does something simple and nice like offer me a coke when getting himself one or cleaning the kitchen (well putting the dishes in the dishwasher is more like it, but he calls it cleaning the kitchen and who am I to argue?) while I'm gone to choir or handbells.
3. Seeing good friends at handbells and the chatter and smiles from those I haven't seen in a week.
4. Getting that hard passage in a handbell piece correct -- more than once. :)
5. Chocolate.
6. Talking with my grandchildren on the telephone.
7. When someone asks if I've lost weight when I know I haven't. I'm thinking the walking at 5:30am is helping.
8. Unexpected hugs from the students in kindergarten and first grade when I meet them in the hall. And being told by those students that I had been there teacher.
9. Finding a pair of slacks that actually fit like I want them too. Not too long, not too short, not to tight, not to loose, legs not to skinny, legs not to wide and floppy. You know JUST RIGHT.
10. Chocolate
11. Corny jokes sent by my daddy via email even when I've seen them many times before.
12. Those perfect days when I can drive with the top down on the convertible, the traffic light and the speed -- well faster than it should probably be. I do like to drive.
13. Comments from friends and friends to make on my Thursday Thirteen post --- and all my other posts. Those are what make me smile. I get that Sally Fields feeling of "You like me, you really like me." with each one. :)

Yup … great list of things that make you smile and many make ME smile too. You might enjoy the list of ‘Natural Highs’ I left at Sacred Ruminations yesterday, but my almost wordless T-13 is at Small Reflections today.
Hugs and blessings,

Yes, those Sonic commericals either make me smile or leave me shaking my head. Also, I'm with you on #2. Those simple and nice things from the hubby are also winners. But your #'s 5 and 10, chocolate! Yeah, that's make me grin big-time, until I look in the mirror and notice those extra pounds (smile).

You're right. I like you ... I really like you. But thos Sonic commercials piss me off. We get them on our cable system. which is fine. And I really do like Sonic - Annie and I fell in love with Sonic when we were on a trip out to Arizona to visit my inlaws. But there ain't a Sonic with 50 miles of my house. honest. And I ain't drivin' that far for a meal, I don't care how good it is.

What about chocolate? Doesn't that make you smile?

I talked to my granddaughter on the phone just last night, it always makes me smile.

Have a great day!

I totally agree with numbers 3 and 4. We are playing that handbell piece right now and no matter what I can't seem to play all my notes in the right place.
