Ten Things That Make Me Happy (in no particular order)

  1. Those rare moments of silence.
  2. Women friends with whom I can be out of touch for years, and when we start talking, it’s just like we’re picking up where we left off — it’s as if one of us just went away for the weekend.
  3. Going out to dinner with my hubby — studying the cocktail menu, to choose the absolutely perfect margarita, without hearing any manic Beavis and Butthead laughs or “Mom, Watch! … Mom … Mom … MOM!! WATCH!” (See also #1)
  4. Hanging out with my 15-year-old, talking or watching movies.
  5. Hanging out with my 11-year-old, talking or reading books.
  6. When my 6-year-old wakes up and climbs into bed with me. She’ll snuggle under the covers with me, and I’ll kiss her on the nose, which makes her grin.
  7. Cuddling with my hubby when he gets home from work in the morning.
  8. A toppling, untidy pile of books.
  9. Really good chocolate.
  10. The little mistakes in speech my 6-year-old makes, like first … twoth, threeth
