UBC 30 - The Little Things That Make Me Smile

Day 30 of the Ultimate Blogging Challenge

Corinne at Everyday Gyaan is the host of this prompt for the Thursday Writer's Post




The little things that make me smile ...



Sunsets - they are so magical

Christmas Tree. Christmas Lights and Diwali lights - such a happy time of year

Balloons - they're so cheerful and when they show up I know I'm on the right track.

Rainbows - I always think that's a sign from Heaven.

Watching my kids see their Birthday Cakes for the first time - the smile on their faces made me smile too.

Little kids - kids are so innocent and sweet. They look at the world in awe and wonder.

Playing board games with my kids - our favourite game is Trivial Pursuit - some of the questions make us giggle.

Watching "I Love Lucy" - guaranteed to lift us (as in my family) out of the doldrums

Watching the birds jostle for position in the bird feeder - the bird feeder itself makes us smile

Watching the beautiful peaceful hills around my house - always makes me happy

Music - food for the soul

Cute little dogs with coats - this really amuses me - don't know why.

Ice cream - never fails to please.

Landing in Mumbai and walking out of the airport - so great to see my cousins and other relatives

Landing back in Wellington - so good to be home and the view of Welly from the plane is just so spectacular.

And today the rugby sevens parade down Lambton Quay but a big smile on my face. But that's a post for another day.




A warm smile is the universal language of kindness. ~ William Arthur Ward 




So what are the things that make you smile?



Have a happy day.

  1. Suzy, you know what makes me smile? When others share what makes their day or what makes them smile. Really and truly, I love watching kids have a good time at what they are doing.
