Wednesday's Wisdom....Life's Little Pleasures

Wednesday's Wisdom is another one of those chain emails that we all get from time to time, but the message is something that bears repeating.

Don't forget to stop and enjoy the little pleasures in life. They are the things that we build our memories on.

The Simple Pleasures Of Life

Think about them one at a time BEFORE going on to the next one...
Especially, the thought at the end.


The beach.


A hot shower.

Getting mail.

Sweet dreams.

Hot chocolate.

A bubble bath.

Falling in love.

A special glance.

Swinging on swings.

A good conversation.

Watching the sunrise.

Laughing at yourself.

Road trips with friends.

Playing with a new puppy.

Running through sprinklers.

Laughing at an inside joke.

No lines at the supermarket.

Making chocolate chip cookies.

Taking a drive on a pretty road.

Laughing so hard your face hurts.

Knowing that somebody misses you.

Hot towels fresh out of the dryer.

Having someone play with your hair.

Making eye contact with a cute stranger.

Your first kiss .

Hearing your favorite song on the radio.

Laughing for absolutely no reason at all.

Midnight phone calls that last for hours.

Holding hands with someone you care about.

Lying in bed listening to the rain outside.

Having someone tell you that you're beautiful.

Having your friends send you home-made cookies.

Chocolate milkshake. (or vanilla or strawberry!)

Getting a hug from someone you care about deeply.

Making new friends or spending time with old ones.

Finding a 20 dollar bill in your coat from last winter.

Accidentally overhearing someone say something nice about you.

Waking up and realizing you still have a few hours left to sleep.

Knowing you've done the right thing, no matter what other people think.

Getting out of bed every morning and being grateful for another beautiful day.

Running into an old friend and realizing that some things (good or bad) never change.

Watching the expression on someone's face as they open a much desired present from you.

Friends are angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly.

Happy Wednesday! Don't forget to try to find a little gratitude for the simple things in life each day!
