Waking up in the morning
Because it means I have one more day to do it right and fix what I did wrong the day before.
Hearing my grandbabies laugh.
Because it reminds me what simple joy is all about.
Watching my kids become adults.
Because it confirms that I was a good Mom when I see them making good choices.
Spending time with my husband.
Because I remember why I liked him so much.
Spending time with my dogs and squirrels.
Because they are happy to just sit with me and do nothing.
Having a house full of people.
Because there is always laughter in the air.
Making someone else smile.
Because it gives me a reason to smile.
Doing for my family.
Because it makes me feel as if I am still needed by someone.
Creating something out of nothing.
Because it forces me to use my imagination.
Having friends who know what being a friend is really about.
Because it means that I will never be truly alone in this world.
