I saw a post on Tess’ journal and I started thinking about it for a bit. Problem is that after I was “done” thinking about it I tried to go to sleep. My brain apparently disagreed with me and continued to think about it. So, here I am, 2am and making a post to my web page when I should be sleeping. Oh well.
“There are tons of things that make me happy that I take for granted; like friends, family, good health, a place to live, food to eat, a job, both my legs, etc. But there are also tons of little things that I tend to overlook. So, beyond the obvious, these are the little things that I am grateful for/that make me happy:”
-old black and white movies
-the fact I never grew up
-a good sense of sarcasm
-hot apple pie
-having a girlfriend that likes my geek-ness
-huge Margarittas (see above)
-the smell of photo chemicals in the morning
-Fenway Park and the Boston Red Sox
-watching play-off hockey
I guess thats about all I can think of for the moment. I’m going to sleep now.
Matt needs to learn how to spell the name of the drink he seems to like so much 🙂
Ah-haaa – sniffing the photo chemicals. That explains all sorts of things.
Seriously though – thank you for the list – mine may be different, but we should all have one – even if it is just a mental one. I think we often pass through life, rather than experiencing it, and that means we miss out on a lot. And who cares how we spell it?
