What small thing gives you great pleasure?

What small, trivial thing gives you a glow of pleasure, and makes your life a little more worth living? What small thing makes you feel better?? What insignificant thing has been of great comfort to you? (I'm cynically wondering if any women will write "my lover's pride'n'joy....")--Al

Somethign that truely makes me happy is when I honestly know that someone is actually caring about me, outside of my family that is.

My grandson giving me a hug!

Right now, there's a very small thing that makes me happy. I guess I'd forgotten why the call them "bundles of joy." That's right, it's The Pipsqueak! My grandson. I could just sit and hold him and stroke his skin for hours. But you know, it's not a "small thing," not at all. It's a HUGE thing. It's called "love."

So many small things...a delicious meal, something beautiful in nature, doubly so if the camera is near and I can grab it, the look of happiness in the eyes of those who love me (but this is not a small thing...)new music that pleases me, lounging around and relaxing, completing a quest in this computer game I'm playing (Might and Magic VII), new entries from journallers that don't update often, and from those that do, ...I'm blessed to have many such joys...

Five minutes of quiet. That, and a bowl of chili.

A bobbin of DMC embroidery floss. I don't know WHY I like embroidery floss so much, but the sheer sensual impact of the stuff is one of my favorite parts of cross-stitching.
